Summer holidays packing list!

I recently ventured off in a camper van travelling down the north coast of Australia between Byron Bay and Sydney. When travelling in a van packing light is always best, to avoid being crammed with belongings. Less is more! I've come up with a summer packing list to inspire you on your travels. This packing list can be used for anywhere you may be travelling this summer just customise it to your preference.

Dr bronzers soap is a lifesaver when packing minimal. Its multi-use - you can wash your dishes, clothes, body and hair with it!! It can be purchased at any good health food store.

I like to take art supplies and books for when I have downtime. I love the convenience of a compact watercolour paint pallet. You can buy these from any good art store. I like to use mixed media paper so that I can draw and ink over the top of the watercolour. Make sure you get waterproof pens if your art going to use them with your watercolour paints.

I've included a list of the items in my photograph above from left to right. Round beach towel, Earth runner sandals, Watercolour drawing pad, Two great books - 'When things fall apart' and Buddhism without beliefs', nobody denim shorts, Small iPhone and a camera tripod, The beach people tie on bag, Keep cup, Lavender eye mask,
