You're going on a last minute adventure...what to pack? pt. 1
I love to read adventure books that have protagonists traveling all over the world from one terrain to another. But it's always bothered me that they never seem to have the right clothes or the author never really comments on what kind of wardrobe they have. Thoughts like these have always made me wonder that if I were to go on a sudden adventure around the world, what would I pack? If I couldn't buy anything and I had to work with what I had for an undertermined amount of time what would work?
After some thought I came up with these:
Hiking Shoes - waterproof, can be worn hot and cold climates, good durability
Plastic sandals - waterproof, worn for hotter climates, potentially worn for more dressier occassions if necessary
Black Jersey dress - wears well (its ok if gets wrinkled), light and can be worn dressed up or dressed down, black because it doesn't get as dirty as easily
Black Leggings - can be worn for numerous activities, can keep legs warm, easy to run in
Dark blue skinny jeans - also worn dressed up or down, ok if wrinkled, can be used for more rougher situations, will keep warm in colder environments
black and white t-shirts - well this is just necessary
white button up linen shirt - for hotter environments, also for layering
grey zip up hoodie - layering piece for cold environment
navy rain coat - for harsher weather conditions
pashmina - can be used for both hot and cold weather
sports bikini - you never know when you may need to be in the water
and a big backpack to put all of that in!
I prefer dark colors because they are harder to get dirty and if you are trying to blend in its more subdued than a bright neon yellow item. Also what are things you can wear on a number of different scenarios? From a trek through the forest, to a fancy dinner party, or scuba diving for buried treasure. If I found myself going from desert dunes to snow capped mountain like Indiana Jones...
