I feel extremely proud of myself at this point :
1. all hostel/hotel/airbnb accommodation/transportation for 52 days are booked.
2. I packed all my needed items into a CARRY_ON luggage.
wow....I have like 3 thick cloths for cold days, 15 dresses, 10 tops , 5 pants/skirts, many under wears plus 2 pairs of shoes and other things like: hair dryer, steam iron skincare products!!! WOW all of them into that small carry on luggage in a very organized way (comparing to my usual condition, this is like super organized).
So I would like to recommend you a few great stuff I just bought from China/Japan to make it a 99.99 score luggage!
For Thief/pocket picker proof!!! I bought below items:
Pocket pickers, if you are reading this post, just leave me alone!!!!!!!!! You have no chance!
I bought this steel chain for $5. This chain is designed for preventing thief. It will link my items to my bag, so even if he got chance to touch my phone, the chain will not let go of the phone.
The black waist bag is for extreme condition that : all my cards in wallet are stolen and I have to protect my last credit card. The quality is really good, very comfortable but a bit thick...not ideal for summer.
I bought lockers cuz I will be staying in hostel for half of my trips. self prepared locker will save $$$ than rent lockers.
This vacuum Seal Storage Bags needs no pump to get the air out and will shrink clothes at least 50%. this is really traveler friendly, since who would wanna carry a pump everywhere. I just need to roll them to extract all airs(see above video for instruction). It cost only 2 dollars for 2 bags! WOW
1. steam iron:
4.5 stars review in amazon.. very small...for the way I pack my cloth, I have to have a iron...I also have a few dresses get messy very easily.
2.mini traveling hair dyer:
4.5 stars review in amazon. It is quite powerful...I hate these very old slow hair dyers in old hotels...takes forever...but this mini one is amazing..love it2
haha...all my friends laughed at me while I showed them.... I heard South France has no AC in most places.....ugh...I can not sleep in that case,, so I bought this battery-using fan..It is good enough for my need. bought from amazon too.
