"Traveling teaches you how to leave superfluous things"

BACKPACK 2 – What do I put inside?

Ok, so you bought a backpack, and now what are you putting inside?

And finally the list of the equipment that I bring with me during my travels in my backpack.
Of course, I have to say that for a trip in Siberia you won’t need the same clothes that you would bring in Indonesia. This post is made just to have an idea about what you need and what I bring with me.
For a working holiday in Australia or New Zealand, as for a road trip in Europe, this equipment is perfect. Basically for every part of the world without any extreme weather condition.
Prefer black or dark shirts and jumpers, because they’ll get dirty harder – nay, it will more difficult saying that you’re wearing the same shirt since 5 days – and you can combine them easily.

*Camera, its accessories, tablet, GoPro, sleeping bag, are not compulsory for every travel, of course. They depend on you. If you’re not interested on taking high quality pictures or video, you can use just a good smartphone. If you’re sure you will always sleep indoor, you don’t need a sleeping bag.

**Obviously girls will have few more needs than males. I didn’t put any of them on the list because actually I’m not an expert and, above all, they’re more ready than us and they don’t need my help for this.
