If you're taking some time out and heading off on the trip of a lifetime, why not let everyone chip in to make your preparations easier. Ask friends and family for their tips, time and travel gear to help you on your way. Just customise and share this patchwork to show everyone what you need, then pack your bags and off you go!
Lend me a backpack
If you have an old backpack lying around, give it a new lease of life! I'd love to take it around the world with me.
