Packed – 6 hours until take off to Ascension

One mistake a first time backpacker always makes is that he or she will pack too much to begin with. It’s not my first time backpacking, but it’s my first time around the world. I’ll no doubt be ditching quite a bit of stuff after the first couple of weeks!

Anyway, here’s a list of what I’ve packed if that sort of thing interests you.
