So that is actually all I brought for my year long journey. I would've done a list with all the items I've obtained, but during the span of a year, I think that I wouldn't be able to keep track. But in Europe, I've picked up a few clothes. Both throughout Europe and Asia, stationary was a must-have. And of course the random snacks or pastries would definitely add up.


So thanks for reading this packing list!

Bye! (France blogs coming soon!)
