Packing-Tech, Toiletries & Other
Updated on June 7, 2015
As I updated this for the first time in several years, I realized that much has changed and I’ve been able to lighten my load quite a bit due to changes in technology. I now carry only an iPad which does the duty of netbook/laptop and Kindle. My camera gear has changed and lightened. I no longer carry a big Nikon DSLR with multiple lenses. As of April 2015, I have a Sony Alpha a6000 Mirrorless Digital Camera with 16-50mm Power Zoom Lens which is about half the size and weight of my old Nikon. I’m very happy with it.

One of the nice things about traveling with someone is that you can share toiletries.
Clockwise; top left and top middle bags are our TSA “liquid allowances” bags. Top and bottom right are misc dry stuff. Middle bottom is my makeup and bottom left is a first aid kit.
