Backpack Packing List for Two Weeks

Backpack Packing List for Two Weeks


Packing for two weeks in just a backpack is challenging, but mobility is a priority for me on this trip! I also got lucky with warm weather on this particular itinerary to Italy, Greece and Egypt in September, so my fabrics are lighter and I can get away with packing one sweater. My goal was to only pack clothing I could wear at least twice on my trip, and I also needed it to all fit within one packing cube. It’s my first time using packing cubes, and I’m glad I bought them because it would be otherwise impossible to extract what I need without dumping my whole backpack out.

Even this small pile of clothing takes up most of the room in my backpack!

Particular to this itinerary, I chose to pack a few more scarves that necessary. I know I’ll be wearing them in Egypt, and I can also make the same jeans & tee outfit look different on a few different days. I also have a loose pair of pants to wear in Egypt instead of my jeans.

Don’t forget to check if your appliances are dual voltage, as well as purchasing an outlet converter. My chargers and hair appliances are all luckily dual voltage so they’ll work abroad!

I’m curious to find out just how much of this packing list I actually wear – more to know for next time if I only end up wearing my tshirts and jeans the whole time!
