Packing is always tricky.

The problem with my husband and I... we love everything. We love streetfood and we love the fancy restaurants, we love the shacks and also the posh hotels. We love everything and we love diversity. We want to experience everything and anything less would be 2-dimensional.

And I also love clothes and shoes.

So what's the problem ?

Well we have a travel policy, initially enforced by my highly practical husband, but I have grown to appreciate this.

Whatever the length of the trip, we only carry hand luggage. Yes that's one rucksack and one handbag.

To be fair, the only issue this has ever caused, was for instance, at heathrow airport coming back from a 2 mth south american holiday, police thought we must be drug dealers.

There are some essentials I literally cannot do without - sketchpad/journal, toiletries, a big camera, laptop, iphone, tonnes of wires and chargers, a snorkle and mask, travellers trousers, knickers, vest tops, 3 pairs of shoes- sequinned fit flops - absolutely love them for general day to day, proper trainers for the gym and hikes, wedge sandals for more sophisticated nights out. And 4 books which I have been meaning to read all year.

The temperatures should range from hot to very bloody hot, so that makes it a bit easier. Though our 3 days in Easter Island will be freezing.

What else to take !!?? a few dresses, some leggings and now my bag won't zip up.
