You've seen those huge backpacks and wonder what on earth do they have in there. Why not just the bring the bare minimum and purchase things there.
4 collared shirts
2 decent party shirts
Copy of Passport
You will already be wearing the following during the flight

What about very cold climate countries like Russia? So far, I've bought a pair of snow boots, 2 caps, 1 GoreTex gloves, 2 thermal underwear, 1 scarf, 1 neck warmer, 1 balaclava, and 2 ski pants. I already have a Winter jacket, so I don't need to buy another one. What other clothes should I get for that climate? And for electronics, do I need to get a step-down converter or do I just need an adapter for my laptop?
