Well, if you haven’t heard, we decided to leave our jobs and make 2017 a year of adventure. So far, South America, Spain, Japan and South East Asia have made it to our list. This will be our first time travelling for an extended period of time and after reading countless travel blogs and websites, we have prepared our very own travel packing list, specifically for South America.
2x Thermals (top & bottom)
Sony Rx100 IV
GoPro Hero 3 + Wearable Gimbal
DJI Mavic Pro Drone
Plastic bags / Dry bags
First Aid Kit
We purchased a few items from AliExpress (hats, head lamps, dry bags) as they are much cheaper online. IKEA also sells really cheap packing cubes and Osprey Farpoint 55/70L is a highly recommended front loading backpack that includes a detachable daypack. There are heaps of positive reviews for this bag.
In total, our backpacks weigh around 10-12kgs each and our daypacks are 2 and 6kgs (heavier for the one with all the gadgets).
Hope you found this information useful, feel free to let us know if you have any questions.
