What to Take in Suitcase, the MochilÃ

With your backpack already chosen, now is the hora to know what to take on suitcase for the mochil�

Jorge and I are a lot of fricotes for clothes, our style is comfortable. I confess that I am not suffering for letting my (few) things backward, much less by not taking my makeup kit (since I’ve never had one). The biggest oddity is by the amount of things to be taken thinking that we are 1 YEAR away from home. The µ s recommendation of more experienced backpackers are scary, but let’s start the detachment since ever and trust in friends backpackers and know what to bring in the suitcase.

³ s NOT intend to fly in low cost companies in Asia and to take advantage of cheap rates, the dispatch of bags should be avoided. Air Asia, for example, limits the total weight of the luggage in 7 kg so that you do not have to move (and pay)!!


Logically that your destination and the time of year, will influence the contents of your backpack. If it’s heat and summer course will be lighter. A harsh winter requires coats, pants, thick socks and boots that are a lot more heavy.


When I told friends and family about the mochilÃ, the questions and all of µ s were almost unà ¢ nimes:

“How are you going to take?”

“How many bags are you taking?”

“Will all fit?”

“And if you do too cold?”

“I don’t think I could”

We also thought it was impossible and was scared to death when I saw the size of the backpack and all things separated.

We started to test the size of the backpack 1 month before I go and look, fits all Yes, everything that you need and not what you want

An important tip that seems silly, but it was very useful: make a check list of trip! A list, in paper or on a cell phone with all you will need to take on her trip. Trust me, your head is a mil por hora and it is very easy to forget something.
