AfrikaBurn – Have you packed everything?
© www.afrikaburn.com

I have travelled weird and wonderful places. I love going away and coming back.

But one thing always kind of nags me in an annoyingly worrying way: Have I packed everything? Have I not forgotten anything? Have I thought of it all?

So I made a list. A checklist I can quickly scan through to tick off all the essentials.

Please help completing this list. You can email me your feedback to TrulyJuly@web.de. Many thanks!
