I am sure all these preparation posts might consequently have your eyes drooping with boredom, I know, I know; I'm sick of it too, I want to leave already and start this adventure! But I have always believed that preparation is the key to success, and what kind of travel blogger would I be if I didn't tell you how I managed to live in a different country for four months?! Travelers are always finding ways to compact this and re-purpose that, here are some of the cool things I found that I am taking on my trip and some other things I can't live without! My shopping excursions lead me all over town but I mostly found these items at REI, Magellans and Scheels! Happy shopping :]
|Flexo-Line from Magellans! In Spain I just put my undies out the window but now I can hang things up anywhere and don't need any clothes pins!|
|With some thick boot socks these Ariat Highland Boots should keep me walking all winter :]|
|This Gap Infinity scarf is so warm and pretty! I love it!|
ALPS Mountaineering Denali 4500 Pack-74 Liters. I'm going to use this baby over spring break when I am traveling. I'm excited to use it and give you a review on how well it worked for me!
