We're prepping! But not like crazy prepping end of days in a bunker kinda noise just the how can I get all the t-shirts I'm gonna wanna wear over the next 2.5 months into a pack and keep it under 12kg. But also not really. But REALLY. We're vacc'ed, visa-ed and verifiably ready to get some quality time off the continental US. Vaccine protip: if you're all, damn it I need to get shots for this trip! and you live in NYC and you waited until the absolute last minute (or even if you didn't) we totes recommend travelclinicny.com easy to get an appointment, best prices and no waits for any of the vaccines. Sadly, this is the first time our trusty packs aren't making the trip with us; they were just too big to reliably meet the carry on specs so we caved and got the Osprey Porter 46 packs because we want to do some tramping and it meets the carryon specs for like all the planes. This is our first time traveling to any of the places we are going to for either of us, kind of a trend when we aren't trekking around Europe. I'm even Duolingo-ing.
So where are we going? Drumrooollll please: Indonesia, Japan, China, Vietnam, Cambodia and Thailand! It's gonna be awesome. And yes, we have DEET and sunblock and all the seasons worth of attire because we're getting all the seasons. And in another first, we've procured pollution masks. Woot.
