down the line.
Packing is an obvious, but occasionally
underestimated part of the travel
process. Set aside ample time to pack for
your destination's climate, and for all
activities and ventures you plan to

middle ground between under and
overpacking, focusing on those items you
will not be able to replace or emulate
during your trip.
You can always reference your research
notes for additional insight.
