WHEN IN ROME
Documenting my travels across the globe
For the next ten weeks, I will be traveling in weather between 40°F and 95°F. From the tropics in Hawaii to the mountains in New Zealand, the beaches of Australia, and the cities of Japan. I did some research on what to bring for each place and how to not overpack, but I definitely overpacked! My hiking backpack is filled to the brim — weighing in at about 38 lbs — and my carry on bag is overflowing with heavy electronics. Luckily, the liquids in my pack will slowly dwindle as I move from place to place and I will leave some unnecessary, excess items in hostels I stay at for others to enjoy.
Below is what I packed. Items that have been deemed unnecessary have been highlighted in red.

When In Rome
Two of my most cherished hobbies go hand-in-hand. Writing is my favorite way to reflect after traveling to a new country. I have kept this blog ever since I studied in Rome to share my travels with families and friends. I hope you enjoy learning about my experiences and getting a sense for my writing skills.
