What’s In My Bag? India & Nepal Edition

I actually struggled hard packing for this trip because the climates between India and Nepal will be different, I have an overnight layover in London, England on my way home, and I want to make sure I’m dressed modestly and appropriately in these more sensitive cultures. So after contemplating what made the most sense, I think I came up with a good list (hopefully) for about 20 days in India and Nepal. Here’s what’s in my bag:

    Thanks for sharing your list! Will be curious to know how it works out. Looks to me like you thought of everything but I’ve never been to India or Nepal. 🙂
