Before departing for Swaziland I spent countless months searching the internet for the “perfect” packing list. The lists were completely overwhelming. I didn’t know how I would fit 27 months in 2 suitcases and 2 carry-ons…
Here is a top ten list of my favorite things!
*This list is in no particular order.*
1) Bed Canopy
2) Solar shower
It spent 9 months in my luggage going unused. I’m not sure why it took me so long. Game changer! Hands down one of my favorite things!
These shoes are so comfy and easy to wash!
5) Diva Cup
Ladies you won’t regret bringing one of these!
6) Headlamps/flashlights/rechargable batteries/solar lights
I use these items alllll the time. I didn’t have electricity for the first two months and the rainy season always knocks my power out.
7) External harddrive/flashdrives
To store your media!
8) Sweaters/hats/wool socks
How wrong of me to stereotype Africa and believe it doesn’t get cold. It feels like 0 degrees in the winter in Swaziland especially when there’s no heat and insulation.
This is how I keep in touch with my friends + family back home.
9) Natural hair care products – Shea butter, coconut oil, essential oils, castor oil.
10) Quick dry towels
