OK, so question of the week doesn’t come out every week. Surely, that doesn’t surprise you. I do what I do when I do it, so, if you don’t like it, bite me. 🙂 I really am just doing amazing other things like bringing free love to the travel blogging world, chit chatting with the all-awesome King of Cambodia, crashing Cambodian birthday parties, visiting temples, exercising daily, teaching spirituality classes, taking long leisurely dinners with my family… What’s a girl to do. So, sorry. I’ll get them out as aI can.

So, ask me dear-God anything, and you know I’ll answer it.  “What clothing do you have as a backpacker?” It’s a fair question, and even an ungirly girl like me, likes to talk about clothes. So…Here it is. The ultimate breakdown of all that I have to wear. Everything I carry needs to be  efficient.

Efficient in terms of
color (does not stain quickly)
material (easy to hand- wash, fast to dry, breathes in hot weather, not tear easily)
volume (does not take up too much space)
weight (does not make my backpack unbearably heavy)
versatile (has several functions, can use it under different circumstances)

These pics reflect what I left Houston with a couple of months ago.  Since leaving Houston (our pit-stop between South America and SE Asia), I’ve gotten rid of two pairs of tights, a sports bra, a running shirt, and a dress. A fellow traveler heading back to Israel took the kilo of clothing for me. What a nice guy! (I do hope we see him again. Otherwise, I hope he enjoys my sports bra!)

Now, I am down to:
3 dresses
2 t-shirts
2 long-sleeve tights (great for exercise, hiking, day wear,cold weather and elegant too)
1 pair of jeans
2 pairs of shorts
2 tank tops
2 long sleeve light cotton shirts (only one of which was stolen off the clothes line)
1 bikini (I know! how cool!)

And the stuff I don’t use but keep in case we go somewhere cold
(which I severely doubt):
1 long-sleeve thin cardigan
1 long-sleeve microfiber-like (does not breathe) exercise shirt
1 long-sleeve cotton shirt

Other things I carry and use occasionally:
1 microfiber towel
2 elastic bands for my knees (they were in that ‘other’ bag but didn’t mention them in the video for whatever odd reason)
2 elastic exercise bands for resistance

Not your boring did-this-saw-that blah, blah, blah blog, right?  Come on, we’re talking clothing here! Any amazing stories about a piece of clothing saving your life? How about that time your pants split in the back just as you leaned over and gave him that killer sexy look? It’s fair game here. Or, that time you saw that backpacker wear the ugliest get-up and you thought, “Hey that’s not even legal while traveling man!”. So, share, I’m here.

Oh, and if you have any super random, beyond personal question to ask, do it. I’ll answer. Dare you!
