  1. Hi, great video btw ­čÖé just wondering, any recommendations for cameras? would you bring a DSLR on a long trip with like a 18-200 mm lense? or, with how advance camera phones are right now (for the higher end phones i guess), just bringing your phone would be sufficient?´╗┐

  2. Not sure why you should avoid cotton? Cotton is an excellent material for hot and humid climates as it allows air to flow in and around the skin, creating a cooling effect. It also absorbs the sweat and moisture from your body which keeps you dry and more comfortable. Polyester blocks the outward flow of moisture and heat which causes the sweat to build up, it also holds the odor making for one very smelly, sweaty and irritated traveler!´╗┐

  3. this is one of the best videos related to packing, BUT it's kinda misguided. you mostly talk about clothes to wear, not HOW to pack. Also what kind of backpacks you prefer? just a suggestion. still i like your videos and i have subscribed recently to your channel. thanks and bye bye´╗┐

  4. Americans think they are so great.Europeans dont wear shorts?You will melt down here in Croatia if you dont wear shorts.´╗┐

  5. New suscriber here! Convinced me at 2.36 hahah but seriously I need to use the "I'm not sure if I need it" tip, thanks guys!´╗┐

  6. Great advice guys, I don't always know how to pack for my husband without stuffing the bag. Tons of advice out there for women, not so much for men. p.s. I'm buying the underwear but believe me… he's gonna wear a fresh one daily!´╗┐

  7. Hey guys, really love your channel I hang out for the new videos every week!
    One question, what size are your backpacks (dimensions and literage)? I definitely want to go lightweight travelling but I don't want to be that person that literally alternates my only two shirts, plus I'm a girl so..
    Big love from Adelaide Australia! xx´╗┐
