Just wanted to stop by and say how wonderfully resourceful I found Her Packing List!! My husband and I spent the holiday in Australia and New Zealand and found the recommendations accurate, and we were prepared for the variety of weather. We had the most spectacular holiday and loved we had room in our suitcases for more souvenirs since we did not over pack. I will be using you for our future adventures!! Thank you HPL!!

Caroline is a native of Atlanta, Georgia, but has also called Charleston, South Carolina and Sydney, Australia home. After college graduation and a series of useless part-time jobs, she went to Australia for a working holiday. In that time, she worked as a bartender, bungee jumped, scuba dived, pet kangaroos, held koalas and drank hundreds of cups of tea.

I literally went through your whole site! I am heading to Europe for a month of unknown with my boyfriend and I am very excited! This has been by far the most insightful site I have found! I just wanted to say THANK YOU!
