But somehow, after a bit of ordering and packing into the tardis that is my beloved Macpac rucksack, it all fitted! With space to spare! This is a new concept in packing for me - I suspect it may be to do with the fact that I am normally trying to fit a rope and half a ton of climbing gear into my holiday bag along with everything else! I even managed to fit in four - yes four - pairs of shoes.
Bags are packed, I'm ready to go - New Zealand here I come!
