If you have been following our trip plans for a while, you know that I am really proud of our plan to be packing light.
First we purchased awesome travel backpacks – one is a 70 litre, the other is 65.
The goal: Four people, 2 large backpacks, 250 days.
The logic: for the portion of our trip when we take the train around South East Asia, it will be easier to carry back packs than suitcases.
If you have seen our 250 day overseas itinerary, you are probably thinking, “Hmm, I didn’t notice South East Asia on your itinerary.” You are correct, we took it out months ago, but we still thought the backpacks and packing light were a great idea.
So, yesterday we did a pre-pack trial. We gathered everything we are taking, and neatly put it in to two backpacks and guess what . . .
What was I thinking?
Maybe, just maybe Hubby and I could get by in the two backpacks, but I have teen girls. And not just one, I have a tween and teen girl. I am not even sure their hair products would fit in the backpacks – but hair, shoes and clothes . . . OMG- clearly I have been mistaken.
Good thing we gave it a try with 2 weeks to go.

- Russian Visas – nothing new to add here.
- Yesterday, we had our family hair cut visit, at least for now we all look great. Wonder how we will be looking in about 6-8 months.
- We thought we were done with all our shopping, turns out we need some more luggage.
