    It will be interesting to see if your packing list changes in a few weeks time… After ten days, we sent a ton of stuff home. Be sure to update your list if it changes!

    Good luck with all this stuff :)
    I bet you will be sending lots of it back home :) Are you sure you really need 3 hats, 3 bikinis and 2 pairs of jeans? Just curious 😉

    @Craig – we’ve been planning to send some stuff home since we started doing the bags.. the first things will be the surfboards as soon as we leave Indonesia. Hope you guys are enjoying yourselves there!

    @Cam – Will let you know, don’t worry. =)

    @Magda – 3 bikinis is something really small, don’t make much difference in the bag, and we’ll spend a loooot of time at beaches, it’s the bikini, a sarong and nothing else. I actually think a 40 liters bag is very small for a girl. About Felipe’s 2 pairs of jeans and 3 hats.. well..

    @Be – quase que eu deixei mais coisa aqui, amiga. Acho que ainda vou largar umas coisas pelo caminho. hehehe
