Preparing for the one year trip

Can’t believe this year will be the year where we will be backpacking for one whole year. It was about 3 years ago when we started thinking about this possibility. I would tell myself 3 more years….then 2 more years…then next year…now, it is THIS year.

To really what we need and don't need, for our short Vietnam trip we decided to pack like what we would bring for one year. This is what Jonathan will plans to bring. What do you think?

The advantage of backpacking is that there is not too much planning needed because traveling is flexible. However, there are still four major plannings that are must:
1) Understand the visa situation for each country.

2) Find out the best time of the year to go for each country.

4) Renew the passports and sign up for zero foreign fee ATM cards and credit cards.

As part of preparation to visit Israel, Annie bought a Jewish Calendar which displays different festivals and religious dates.

Each one of us is also assigned to research different countries as part of the preparation and to get everyone involved and excited. We need to share about the culture, exciting locations, best foods, and prayer items of each country.

We also started to buy for each person the necessary equipments such as backpacks, hiking shoes, slippers, pants, jackets and hats. Given each one of us have our iDevices, we also need to buy external chargers and external drives. Of course, a GoPro-like camera is needed for those exciting adventures awaiting us.
