Packing for Russia


These are the clothes that I'm taking on my 3-week Trans-Siberian trip across Russia. Since I'll be on the move most of the time, I'm only taking a carry-on suitcase. The clothes ended up taking up half of the space. The rest is for gifts I'm bringing for my family, and entertainment for the long train journey.

Although it was really difficult to edit my packing list to just these pieces, I tried to keep these packing tips in mind. (That's why you see a lot of black!) I think this is going to be more than sufficient, especially since I get to do laundry at home in Penza.

If you'd like to see, the itemized packing list is after the jump!
