If you could only pack 5 things for your next trip, what would they be?

1. Filson Medium Duffle Bag. Great space enough for a set of clothes and some space to bring things back. I like to keep it simple.

2. iPhone 5s for all the travel-get-around needs. Plus its still pretty much the best compact camera I’ve used.

3. My favorite Henry Miller book to entertain me on the train or during travel: Stand Still Like The Hummingbird

4. Canson Universal Sketch Pad - One of my favorite things to do on the road is sit down and take a moment to absorb all thats around me with a little doodling.

5. The only pair(s) of shoes you need while traveling: Clarks Rockie GTX waterproof shoes or Chaco Unaweep Z/1 sandals

Where would you travel to next?

Ko Chang Archipelago, Thailand

In one sentence, how would you describe your thought process to packing.

Keep what is worthy keeping and with a breathe of kindness blow the rest away.
