So as I depart on the typical South East Asian Odyssey I thought it would be a perfect opportunity to show my carry-on size backpack and it’s contents.
As everyone has varied needs I would not suggest this as a model to follow from, but more so a basic guide to have a geez at.
These photos illustrate what i packed in my big pack rather than my day bag. Therefore this does not include things like my electronics, wallet, passport, drink bottle etc. I will make a separate post for my day-bag and its contents.

4 pairs shorts, 1 maxi skirt, 1 pair of temple pants, tights, pyjama shorts
