Around the World Packing List

Three days ago, we traded in 2 bedrooms for 2 backpacks.  

How did we decide what to bring on our 5 month world trip with a toddler?  Some decisions were easy: Take the baby, leave the stand mixer.  Others were more difficult: the teal jumpsuit or the extra sippy cup? On our first round of packing, Nolan's and my bags weighed in at 34 and 30 pounds, respectively.  After taking out all our "luxury" items--a 6th pair of socks here, an extra bottle of sunscreen there--our packs weighed in at 28 and 25 pounds. Able to comfortably carry our lighter bags, even while holding a toddler, we decided our bags were ready to go.  So what 53 pounds of belongings are we taking with us? Check it out below:
