trip 1: packing list

so as per usual i have waited until the very last second to do very important things like packing for my trip. raise your hand if you are surprised. 

anyway after much discussion i have decided (mom has helped me decide) to travel with a gregory z30 backpack. i am using these amazing compression bags.. kind of like the vacuum bags.. to fit everything in my backpack. it is still a challenge.

here’s a picture of the backpack

everything is going to be very wrinkled so it’s a good thing that i don’t really care about that.
