What I brought on my trip to Australia and New Zealand

My packing list

Packing is never easy.  On my first trip overseas, I had no idea what to bring and ended up hauling gear around Europe that I never used.  Nowadays, I try to underpack with just the essentials.

  • 1 x long sleeved shirt
  • 3 x shorts
