Africa Trip Packing List (2 people, 5 weeks)

A daily blog post sounded like a good idea, and so far it’s been fun. The travel photo blogs every other day have been super easy, as I scheduled them all in advanced up to April. The non-photo posts in between were a way to get me to share other bits of writing I do anyway, things like emails, forum posts, diary entries or tutorials that could easily be made into blog posts with minimal editing.

Today I’ve been super busy with work and getting ready for a 5 week overland truck safari through east and southern Africa. As such, the only writing I’ve done is the packing list. So here it is, as I wrote it, checked it, and packed it, but otherwise in a random order:
