Long Term Travel Pack List For Women Only

Ever wonder what an off the beaten path female packs for long term traveling? Check out the items I have packed to include to sandy beaches to cooler climate, while hiking/camping and Scuba diving along the way. This is what a long term travel pack list for women only looks like.

Call me crazy but this is what I have decided to bring in my 37 LITER BACKAPCK for the next 18-24 months (or longer). It’s also 3 liters less then what I packed for Europe, check that list out here. If you are a guy, and need some other ideas check out my husbands packing list here.

THE BACKPACK OF CHOICE -> Who else really uses backpacks in rugged terrain all over the place, the Military of course! So we picked out the Tasmanian TT Mission Bag, 37 litres. Plus 2 extra attachments, one for my water bottle & one for extra items such as sandals or shoes.
