This week I have been gathering up all the clothing, medicines, toiletries, gadgets and other miscellaneous items required for a 5 month trip. It's clear already that I have too much stuff to fit in my bag and will need to cut down considerably! Well, it's my first time taking a trip like this, and I suppose I have a lot to learn.
It's difficult to know exactly what to take on a trip that will encompass many different countries with vastly different climates. What is suitable for wearing in icy Patagonia in the middle of the southern winter is almost certainly unsuitable for the beach in Brazil.
We leave a week today from Edinburgh, and travel to Lima, Peru with a one night stop in Madrid, Spain en route. It's a bit of a step into the unknown for me, but I'm excited to get out there and start exploring.
