After my first backpacking trip in Thailand, I was convinced that I had packed too much. With a minimalist approach, I worked on swapping out my existing backpacking gear with more compact and portable options, testing new things and removing non-essential ones along the way in each backpacking trip. A short trip for me is any trip ranging from 1 week to 4 weeks and I would pack the same.¬†Tomorrow I will be on a 5-day (really short!) backpacking trip in Ho Chi Minh, Vietnam and here is what I brought. Backpacks I can’t stress enough how important it is to have a comfortable backpack. Not only does it need to be able to accommodate everything that you are bringing, it needs to fit you and your body such that you can comfortably carry your backpack and walk for a long period of time. My backpack choice for a short.
