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. πŸ™‚
