            Very helpful list. We found that having a hard plastic water bottle (like a Nalgene) was nice when we were on the go. We did some hiking and it was easy to clip the bottle to our backpacks and we avoided buying water all the time.

              Thanks for the list. I'm actually using it to help on our trip to New Zealand and Australia. This really helps cause I always pack for FI and baby. So having a list to mostly take care of FI and myself I only need to work on a list for baby
