On tour you will never find me without my backpack because inside is everything I need to have a successful trip! At the same time I’ve learned the importance of packing just the essentials; especially when it comes to the bag I carry around all day. If you opened up my backpack on any given trip these are the things that you would find inside:


  • Small Backpack
  • Sunscreen
  • Water bottle
  • Granola bar
  • Phone/Camera
  • Money for Souvenirs
  • Sunglasses
  • Small umbrella that can fit in my backpack


These are just the items that I carry in my day bag. For a more extensive list check out our packing list:
