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?
Wow!!! You are a great packer! I need to learn some tips from you! It sounds like you will have a great time!
It just requires the belief that you will have time and money to pay for laundry service (or the space to do it in your hostel). Laundry was about $1 per kilo in Cuenca.
