The backpacking list

Die Packliste_1

How can I fit my whole life in 38 liters and 20 liters day backpack?The magic word is minimalism.

I have pretty much sold everything from my apartment, got rid of many clothes of my closet and really reduced to a point where I thought, I might need this at least once a week. In the beginning it was really hard for me, but the more I got into it the more I felt like I was freeing myself from a heavy burden.

Partir est toujours un peu mourir. Going away is always a little bit like dying.

Now I only own a few boxes of clothes and folders I store at my parents place.

But I had to even reduce more and really think about every piece I wanted to take with me:
