TRAVELLING; WHAT TO PACK
Here’s my complete packing list to show you what my bags look like when I travel. The only time this would change is if I go to a colder climate (so might include some thermals and a waterproof) and if I am heading somewhere to do a specific activity like a hike or sailing.
Osprey Questa 27L Bag – spacious daypack that comfortably fits everything, with padded section for my laptop.
Hydro Flask Standard – Insulated bullet-proof water bottle.
MacBook Air – comes with me everywhere for blogging, work, staying in touch, watching films and editing photos.
Thule MacBook Air Bumper – not cheap, but worth every penny when it comes to protecting you Mac on the go.
iPhone 6 – I have a Three SIM which works in 42 countries, otherwise I buy a local SIM on arrival.

Knips External Battery Pack – for charging my phone, iPod, kindle and camera
Kindle E-Reader – this little gadget comes everywhere with me.
