Our Around the World Trip Packing Lists

Below you will find a list of and some photos of everything we packed for our around-the-world trip. Since we’ll be returning home every 3 to 6 months we will have the opportunity to add or subtract things as needed, but for our first few months this is what we have. We’ll update as we add things we find we really wish we had or remove things we realized we don’t really need. Both of our packs are able to be carried on aircraft.
