Planning a trip 4-5 months in advance is the fun part.
Finding airline flights, hotels, condos, train schedules,
getting proper documents, like visas, vaccinations,
now that takes some time.
Planning what to pack for 3 months adds another dimension, especially if you plan on
travelling thru out the country.
A few things we already have from our other trips.
Backpacks, good suitcases, light travel gear.
We made some good investments in footwear..
Keen sandals, a new pair for each of us.
We are breaking them in by walking and making sure they are comfortable.
Packing for 3 weeks, staying 3 months.
2 small day packs, 1 carry one and 1 checked suitcase.
(Maybe that checked suitcase can become another carry on.)
Making sure we show our colours.
