I think that a check-list is really useful when you are travelling, but sometimes, when you start packing your stuff, it’s hard to find out what you’ll need on your trip and sometimes you forgot things that are especially important! (Once I forgot my swimsuit when I was going to a Spa, then I understood the importance of a check-list..).
So, based on my experience, I tried to make a check-list with the “essentials” for a backpacker to try to help people not to forget the important things at home when travelling.
You can download the Backpacker check-list from here (PDF).
I hope it will help you!
I thought about to put also “a piece of garlic” on the list, but I’m not sure that this is an essential to have, anyway it can actually save your life. Really.
