Packing List

Jump to last reply

Okay, so I suck at packing.And I mess it up both ways: either too much or not enough. I never get it right. We have 5 weeks OZ/NZ (!) with 3 days in Hong Kong on the way. Destinations include Sydney, Uluru, Palm Cove, Melbourne, Tasmania, and NZ! I am overwhelmed by the length of the trip plus the diversity of climates. Leaving next week (mid-April).

So this is what I have to pack: fleece jacket, rain jacket with hood (can wear over the fleece), rain pants (to wear over leggings or pants), hiking shoes, sandals, black flats for "dressy", jeans, black slacks, black capris, one pair shorts, bathing suit with active shorts for cover up, 3 short sleeved t shirt tops, 3 long sleeved, 1 jacket to wear for dress up with black slacks and various tops under, 1 sweater set, 1 black sweater. A hat for sun, plus gloves & scarf for glacier in NZ. No dresses or skirts. Plan to wear "jogging suit" on the plane....then that jacket can be a jacket (for example) a day in the Blue Mountains. One carry-on, one checked bag (which is still heavier than I wish but it's five weeks for goodness sakes.) Sleep wear. Minimal undies and socks (plan to wash in hotel sinks).

Any feedback??
