Packing List

This is a complete list of the items that I brought with me to country. The things with a line through them are things I wish didn’t bring either because they were a waste of space because I could buy them in country or they were actually just unnecessary. Towards the bottom of this list is another list of things I wish I would have brought. Enjoy, and feel free to contact me with questions!
