In a couple of weeks I’ll be embarking on a camping holiday in Japan and have set myself a challenge – to downsize my pack.

Yep, I’m going from a 65 + 15L to a single 30 litres.

In this I need to fit a camping mat and pillow, a sleeping bag, as well as enough clothes for several weeks to suit a range of conditions, and let’s not forget the hair straightener.

So why have I set myself this challenge?

It’s quite simple; my partner doesn’t think I can do it!

Over the coming weeks I’ll be featuring tips and suggestions for packing smaller and lighter as I rise victorious! I’ll also be featuring destination suggestions for Vietnam as I know a number of you are planning trips for the not to distant future.
