Packing list

Some friends asked us for a packing list. So we made some photos to show you what we decided to take with us. Under each photo you find a short description.

Our bottles are attached to the bikes.


Waterproof little packing sack as trash. (leave every place cleaner than before, nature will honer it, plant a tree - we have so much seeds from our fruits - or pick up trash from others.)

Zipper for collected fruits as cherries or berries, laundry mesh (so you don’t have to put wet things into the bags), copies of the passes, knife sharpener, repertoire of aloe vera and coconut oil (natural sunblock)

More essentials:

The super nice hammock ;D, both of us a helmet, tension belts, a tiny little stool, ground sheet, toilet paper and a little shovel to return the raw food to the ground ;)

Jen’s backpack:

A jacket, hoodie, the brown jacket is given away already, a beach “towel”, 3 scarves (for sun protection or breath protection in dusty cities), a sachet with little gifts for children, vaccination record (if we have to get “immunized” to get in any country we will take another route, but it can be helpful to show your vaccination record in some countries) a notebook, gumboots, slipper, sneaker, a little drum and a guitar to make musiiiic, tubes, reflective west, rain poncho, a very good and compact water filter

Frontroller and bicycle rack Can:

Both of us a 35l waterproof packing sack for the sleeping mat (therm-a-rest) and bedroll (Meru-Colorado). We have two loops to connect the sleeping mats, the bedrolls can also be liked. We have inlets for the bedrolls, cause its easier to wash them.
