I haven’t always been a prepared packer. Take for instance the World Race. The week before I left my life suddenly got very crazy and in turn I kinda lost my mind, haha. The day before I left I was shopping and when I came out of the store to get into my car I couldn’t find my keys anywhere, so I had to call my mom to come and bring an extra set. It turns out my keys were in one of the pockets of my purse, the purse I took on the Race, which means I took my car keys on the Race with me. Fail. But it goes even farther. I may have brought my car keys with me, but I managed to forget other things I actually needed. Epic fail.
Moving to a different country is a pretty big deal, and this time I didn’t want another packing failure on my hands, so, to help me out I made a pretty extreme packing list.
And yes, I did draw half the things I’m bringing with me. That’s just how my mind works, I’m a visual person. Some of you might think my list looks like chaos, while others may see extreme organization, but I look at it and it just makes sense. I see what I need, and I know exactly what needs to be in each bag…
Looking at these lists, it may seem like I’m packing a lot, but I am fully willing to edit. However I’ve done the whole living out of a backpack for a year thing, and now that I have a chance to have options, I’m going to take it!
And if a giant packing list isn’t enough, this time around I decided to take it another step further, yes, I made a packing to-do list, but one things for certain, I’m going to be one organized girl when I get to Bolivia and I’m going to be leaving a pretty organized life behind me.
