Packing list

At the moment our packing list looks like this. Although we might make some changes if we realize during training, that we are missing something or don´t need something. We created this list form other templates which we found on the internet or got from other bicycle touring people that we have spoken to.

This list is made for our type of tour; mostly driving on roads and bike paths also we are planning to camp mostly on campsites. So we might not bring a water filter as we are not driving in remote places for a long period of time. And we will not bring a map for Switzerland and France as the path is clearly signed. As we are travelling in summer the clothes we bring along are adapted to the weather. Apparently Marino Wool is one of the best materials to buy as it is comfortable, absorbs moisture and does not smell too bad.
