A Minimalist’s Suitcase : What to pack for 3 weeks or more of travel (going overseas) in warmer weather

I talked about packing for the weekend (being the girly girl that I am), and packing for a business trip without having items that are useless.

But here is the trickiest of them all: packing for overseas travel, for something 3 weeks or longer.

5 Overseas-specific things to think about:

  1. You will probably want to come back with souvenirs. Leave room.
  2. You will probably not want to be singled out as a noticeable tourist.
  3. I am assuming you will be washing items during the 3 weeks, especially underwear.
  4. Consider bringing your own plastic reusable utensils or cups.
  5. Do not pack items to try and have your entire wardrobe with you. It’s temporary!
