In less than one week I will be leaving for my trip to Ecuador and the Galapagos! Here is an overview of what I plan to bring; am I missing anything?
Underwater Camera- I want to capture all of the beauty under the water
Ipad for email, entertainment, and guidebooks
kindle for reading
Extra camera batteries
External battery charger
2 bras (wear one)
2 bathing suits- If you plan on spending 8 days on an island tour and nearly a week at the beach you will need them!
1 pair of Bermuda shorts
4 t-shirts that coordinate with shorts and skirts
1 pair of skinny jeans
1 lightweight waterproof jacket
1 lightweight scarf (good for protection from the sun and keeping warm at night)
Chaco sandals- great for long walks and wading into water
Flip flops- a must for any shared dorm showers
Travel sized shampoo & conditioner
Half a Bar of soap
Half a Bar of face wash
Chapstick with SPF
Waterproof Sunscreen- 2 bottles
Snorkel, mask, and flippers- I want to snorkel everyday I’m in the Galapagos!
Waterproof bags- especially important for camera equipment
Small daypack for island hiking
Travel journal w/colorful pens & tape for keeping mementos
a hat (maybe)
Candied ginger to settle your stomach after motion sickness
Vapour water bottle
My “First Aid Kit”
Dramamine- the waters are known to be rough
Emergen-C vitamin packs are good to rehydrate and fight off colds
I want to go carry-on only but I don’t think I can since I will have the sunscreen. I still want to pack light though. What do you think? Am I missing anything? Could I leave something behind?
