Packing for Greek Islands Discovery Tour

Postby stephie » Tue May 08, 2007 11:49 pm

Hi there!

I am trying to pack for GCI which I will be doing this summer for 2 weeks. In the itinerary, it says that at one point we will be walking for 5 - 6 hours to our destination. Just wondering how the luggage thing works? Will I be carrying my own pack for that time or will it go on ahead of me. Sorry if this is a silly question, but i have never done a GAP Adventure before, can't wait, but don't want to pack too much if I'm carrying it for 6 hours :D

Thanks so much!

Hi Stephie,

No you won't be carrying your bags for the whole time for the 5-6 hour walk, but pacnking light will still be key to a comfortable trip. Overpacking just makes it harder to find what you are looking for as well makes it heavy and awkward when it comes time to transfer to your next destination. A good rule of thumb to use is to lay out everything you want to take with you and then take away half before packing!!

Hope this helps,

Monty
