list of random things to bring

I just wanted to write down a few things I think we should consider taking on our trip as we might forget them otherwise…

They are in complete random order and some things we might decide not to bring. I’ll make sure we will update some sort of list somewhere that will list everything we are bringing…

  • helmets – on top of clothes cupboard on the inside
  • games – beach tennis, frisbee, water bounce ball, juggling balls, hacky sack, slackline
  • umbrellas
  • hammocks
  • suncream
  • oil lamp
  • mozzie spray
  • first aid kit

The Lonely Planet collection

It looks like our Lonely Planet collection is going to grow even bigger. We have decided we will buy at least the LP’s for the first ‘half’ of the trip and carry them with us. Jon has made a list and come up with the following LP’s to buy:

  • Thailand
  • Mongolia
  • Laos
  • Tibet
  • Central Asia
  • Myanmar – hopefully we can arrange a visit!
  • Cambodia

We have decided not to buy a new China guide as the actual attractions won’t have changed and we won’t be traveling by train or bus nor do we need accommodation whilst we are there. We’ll take Jon’s old guide.

We haven’t decided yet on the LP’s to buy for the Stan section of the trip, so this list will be updated!!
