Your best travel buddy! The Backpack!
So what´s important when you pack your backpack: First, think about the weather. It may be cold where you are now, but you´re heading off to tropical paradise, so don´t bring too much. It´s always much warmer than you think.
Travel sheets are more hygienic than a sleeping bag.
Bring some dollars just in case, but credit card is really the safest way to bring money. Scan all travel documents together with your passport number, and credit card helpline numbers, then e-mail these to yourself in the unfortunate event that you would get robbed.
Pack your clothes in separate plastic bags, that´ll protect them from humidity and sort them according to a theme that will help you find what you´re looking for later, like underwear/ pants/ t-shirts etc.
