Life as a backpacker, 19 May 2009

So when I left home I was loaded with supplies. Here is a quick rundown (for what purpose I don't know) of how my supplies have depleted in the last 3 and a half months.

Shower Gel - a third of the way through my second bottle (amazing, seeing as showergel always lasted a really short time in communal bathrooms at uni!)

Shampoo - started with a full thing, still have over a third left (probably a sign of the fact that I wash my hair so infrequently)

Conditioner - used less than a third of what i started with

Toothpaste - still got about 2 weeks of teethbrushing left from my original tube

Razor blades - used 3 of 5

Hand cream - half a tube left

After sun - half a bottle left

Sun cream - this is the one thing that really gets used and that i always seem to need. must stock up in Australia as all the sun cream in Asia contains whitening agent - not good for the bronzed beauty look.

Another thing, which I hate to admitt is this... I still have clothes in my rucksack that I haven't yet worn!

Yes, that's right, I've been carrying around a fair amount of clothes that I just have not worn. I can hear my mum tutting now. I know, it's bad. But the clothes I haven't worn are the clothes I intend to wear (and leave) in Australia. They are just a bit cleaner and a bit less backpackery, and more suitable for polite society in Oz.
