Getting ready to leave

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
T shirt
socks
shoes
a warm layer
jacket

In carry on backpack:
emergency clothes in case of lost bag (socks, undies, t shirt)
USB charge cable
kindle
travel journal
notebooks (Japanese language notes, travel info)
pencil case with pens and things
wet wipes
painkillers
headphones
eye mask
laptop
water bottle (Frank Green <3)
sharktopus (my travel mascot)

Clothing:

1 pair pajamas
5 pairs underthings
5 pairs socks
4 T shirts (including Harry Potter house shirts for Universal Studios)
3 pants/jeans
2 warm layers (one zip hoodie, one flannel shirt)
shoes
rain jacket
Disneybound* outfits

Bathroom stuff:
Hayfever meds
deoderant
face cleanser
face moisturiser
sunscreen
hair wax
sanitary products

Misc:
plug converters
chargers for phones
laptop cable
day packs
washing liquid pods
washing peg hanger thing
my 5 year journal
2 x powerbank

 

 

*Disneybounding was invented because adults are not allowed to dress as Disney characters at Disney parks. The idea is to evoke a character through mostly regular clothing. Examples here.

  1. It’s always handy to see what other’s pack for their overseas adventures. I wouldn’t have thought of a spare change of clothes in hand luggage if suitcase if lost – very wise. And glad to see I’m not the only one who has a travel mascot 😀

    1. I didn’t manage to get Sharktopus out much at Disney, but he’s been there before. I’ll try and get more photos as we go.

      And yes, the spare clothes in the hand luggage is the Worst Case Scenario packing XD very sensible, never needed it yet.
