This is it! I hope this checklist was helfpul for you to pack everything you need for your trip.
Some last tips: Better have a little less clothes than too much. Maybe you like to buy some nice ones from the countries you go anyway. The same goes for jewelries. Better let your stuff at home. Especially if you go to countries which are not so developed yet and don’t have as much luxury as you do, make sure to not offensively showcase it and keep it better for other opportunities. It all depends what kind of trip you’re planing.
Anyway, I wish you fun and save travels and if you have anything to add to this list write me in the comments below <3
