What I am packing …

By 2 April, 2015Motor, World

Uff, that is always the most difficult part to figure out. What do you need on your trip? I guess every trip is different and all will depend on your goal. My goal on this trip is take lots of photos, record some (I hope) good videos and write about it and of course ride through great places. Lots of stuff which im taking with me was especially added to the list strictly depending on the size of the item. The panniers are a certain size so the longest thing must be exactly the length of it ( for example tripod ).  I took photos of all the things which I packed in the three panniers and tank bag, all fit in like Tetris.

I listed below all the stuff …. hope it gives you an idea how little (or a lot) you need to survive for almost four months being a traveller, reporter, photographer, cook, mechanic, writer, navigator and survivor. I will review the list after the trip!

That is how ‘La Aventura Oriental’ begins…
