Setting up the bags to 6 months off, getting the heat of the tropics and European winter is not a simple task. Our goal is to get as little as possible and to have maximum mobility.
I found a sleeping bag large and unnecessary, since we have no plans to go camping. But after reading a few blogs and chatting with a friend about it, he referred to it as a mandatory item made me think about it.
As we’re going to use different ways of transport we might end up sleeping in an airport or trainstation, there is also a guide about sleeping in airports that is sensational
We will be more flexible to sleep in our friends houses or local families if necessary.
It is a good plan “B” if we sleep in a place cooler than imagined or in questionable hygiene conditions .
We were on the way to Taranaki, and on the way stopped in a camping store, we found the most compact and accessible price sleeping bag that had ever seen here (NZD 75.00), it was the first thing we bought for the trip.
I hope that it may be useful even if only to cover the floor for a picnic.
