What to purchase for Australia

 

Stuff for departure

Think about what you’re going to need on your travels before you leave. On the internet, there are a ton of packing lists for you to find with tips about things for you to take with you (see packing list on this website).

The first tip is the most important one, take as little baggage with you as possible. In reality, you’re going to collect lots of stuff during your trip and all of that stuff you’re going to have to be dragging around (on your back). So it’s handy to be really strict with yourself when packing.

 

1.Take old clothes with you. Clothes you can get rid of during your trip. You can buy cool new clothes/socks/underwear to replace those old ones.

2.Take a good look at the country you’re going to and think about what you could buy there, so you don’t actually have to drag it all the way over there.

3.Buy a backpack, flight bag (bag to put around your backpack to prevent anybody from putting unwanted stuff like drugs in your backpack) on a second-hand goods’ website. Lots of things have only been used briefly and 75% of the things on there are much cheaper than new stuff. This saves you so much money, which can be used for the actual trip (longer traveling!!)

4.Borrow stuff from others. When you’re going (shortly) to a foreign country, you can easily ask people to borrow a backpack or things like a headlight.

5.Use an (old) duvet cover for in your sleeping bag. This functions as an inside sleeping bag and is easier to clean than the actual sleeping bag.

6.Buying a backpack on Marktplaats is totally fine. In the store, the salesmen assure you (of course with a nice sales pitch) that you need a backpack that fits on your back perfectly. But keep in mind that the actual hours you’ll have the backpack on your back are countable on two hands. Carrying a closet around when moving is actually far worse for your back than having a backpack that doesn’t exactly fit. So a perfectly sized backpack is just nonsense. EXCEPT when you plan on backpacking the way people used to do it in the good old days; with the backpack on huge hikes and long hour hitchhiking alongside the road. The backpackers we know today only wear their backpack from the hostel/campsite to a bus/train/car and from a bus/train/car to a hostel/campsite…
