Two days ago I married a gorgeous woman in a perfect garden wedding in our local park. The weather was clear and stunning, we looked awesome and our friends and family brought a lot of love and joy to the day.
The honeymoon starts tomorrow, with a morning flight to Narita airport, Tokyo.
Today is dedicated to prep, changing some wedding gift money into yen, doing some laundry, last tidy of the house and of course, packing our bags.
For those of you who like details, here’s what’s on my packing list. Trying my best to pack light because it’s easy to launder clothes in Japanese hotels.
Wear on the plane:
Trackpants or leggings
a warm layer
In carry on backpack:
emergency clothes in case of lost bag (socks, undies, t shirt)
USB charge cable
notebooks (Japanese language notes, travel info)
pencil case with pens and things
water bottle (Frank Green <3)
sharktopus (my travel mascot)
1 pair pajamas
5 pairs underthings
5 pairs socks
4 T shirts (including Harry Potter house shirts for Universal Studios)
2 warm layers (one zip hoodie, one flannel shirt)
chargers for phones
washing liquid pods
washing peg hanger thing
my 5 year journal
2 x powerbank
