Let's Pack!


What comes to mind when you hear the phrase “the bare necessities”? Do you think of only using sufficient resources, with nothing to spare? How about, being happy with what you have? Or, maybe you just think of the theme song from the Disney classic, The Jungle Book. Truth is, there’s hardly a wrong answer; we’re simply helping you prepare for this ride by using a light hearted, sensible approach – and because the theme song sends a relevant message while also being one of our staffer’s favorite Disney movies!

When preparing for a journey of this kind it’s important to be practical about the things you’ll need to bring along; after all, most of what we think we need could probably just be considered “stuff”, right?

Noting the symbols next to each item may help you decide.
