My mission is to pack a single carry on bag (in addition to my handbag of course). One single carry on bag to feature my patriotic sportsgear, coldgear (as it’s winter in South Africa), party wear and then clothes for Ethiopia where it is much much warmer. 3 weeks worth of clothing! Layering is going to be KEY! I have never before packed for an international trip hours before departure. Luckily, I succeeded in packing just my single bag with minutes to spare before heading off to the airport though I suspect I took far more than necessary.
