    Literally everything I own fits into a small travel back-pack. Since I've been living like this for 3 years already I decided to make a video and share my tips and advices with other fellow travelers.
    Most of the things I talked about in the video:
    Main camera:
    Action camera:
    Hard disk:
    Big bag:
    Small bag:
    The coolest jacket ever (I bought mine at Uniqlo and this is the best I could find on Amazon, though I'm not sure if it's exactly the same):
    As for clothing items, I'm sure you can manage on your own :)

    Nice video. Safe to say the 50L hiking backpack is a airline check-in or do you take out the smaller backpack, treat it as a personal item, overly smile to the air staff at the gate to clear the larger backpack as a carry-on? =)

  • Ian McQuestionable

    You should try going to Turkmenistan. The Visa and preparation is hectic (it's on the same levels as North Korea) but the turn out is worth it. Turkmenistan is one of those extremely isolated and unknown countries that hardly anyone goes to, it also has a really bizarre regime in power there (the isolation and limits of travel are once again, on the same levels as North Korea) however, don't let the isolation and totalitarianism deter you, if you enjoyed visiting North Korea, you will probably enjoy Turkmenistan as well. The capital city of Ashgabat in particular is beautiful, and an experience all to it's own, you should really consider a trip there. And if you haven't gone already, you should also go to Tajikistan, it has some of the best unclimbed mountains
    btw, you content is amazing, I hope to one day do what you do!

    You gonna pack a first aid kit and a pocket knife, always useful things to have.
    You can now also buy TSA approved multitools such as the leatherman style ps and the swiss army jetsetter.
    Its better to have it and not need it , than need it and not have it.

    Basicly you are wearing your first shirt while the second is beeing washed/dryed, right ? Seems a little tedious, I personally would take about 3 times more clothes (and a pair of propper boots for a mountain trip) for 3 times less time, but if you can do it than that means you can travel like that. And of course, you said it yourself, if you reeeeally need something, you can always buy it for cheap on the go.
    Very nice video, I found it entertaining and helpful !
