Prior to travel, Leena and Beth spent hours shopping looking for the most convenient traveling accessories to ease the trip. Now after backpacking through Ghana, Africa we can give a pretty good account of what is worth your money and what is not!
* Antibacterial fast drying travel towels - Work wonders, dry in hours, and don't smell musty!! You may consider spending the few extra $ and buying the XXL version Beth found. Leena's size L (the size of a hand towel) left one wanting for a few extra inches of material!
*Exofficio undergarments - Packaging states two pairs, 6 weeks, 10 countries! Truly AMAZING!
*baby wipes, face towelettes, and hand sanitizer - MUST HAVE A LOT! Quick bath on the go.
*100% cotton sleeping bag liners - Great when guest house sheets are questionable!
*space safer bags - if space is an issue, great for condensing clothing size - may leave you a bit wrinkly
*North Face hiking pants - MUST for any traveler! Wash and air dry easily overnight!!!
*Crocs and Keen footwear - Long time Croc wearer Beth made a believer in Leena on the comfortability and ease of Crocs!!! Keens are great too but claim to have a odor shield that does not work!
*Food: peanut butter, almonds, granola bars, tea bags, easy mac candy - PACK AS MUCH AS YOU CAN!!!
*travel kleenex - Crucial when traveling to areas where restrooms can be anywhere and available toilet paper unreliable
*40% deet bug spray, sunblock - VERY IMPORTANT
*baseball hat - truly the only thing we never used and sent back with Steve!
*small travel lantern/flashlight - when sharing a room, in case of electricity loss, or walking out at night CRUCIAL
