My styleTravel Tips

What do I take for the trip to South America?

In few hours I have a plane to Buenos Aires, but I am still packing my stuff. The limit of 20 kilograms is definitely too small for 2-mothhs trip :) Especially because the weather will be highly diversified, i.e. from 0 degrees (Celsius) on Atacama Desert, to 35 degrees (Celcius) around Iguazu Falls. It means that I have to to pack shorts as well as very warm jacket. I need to admit that none of my trips so far has been so demanding. Luckily, I already have all of the most significant things like warm clothes, comfortable shoes and electronic equipment. The rest is less important and I can live without another dress or jumper ;)

I would like to make to most use of this trip and I’m going to to take tones of photos, videos and drone shots. I don’t want to miss a thing! That’s why I take a huge bag of electronic equipment this time.

South America is my dreamy destination and I have planned it for months. I have a feeling that it’s going t be the most spectacular trip so far. Keep your fingers crossed for me so that I can get to all beautiful places in Argentina, Uruguay, Chile, Bolivia and Peru.

Find a moment and have a look on my page about this trip: South America Round Trip – the path of natural wonders

I will share with you my current location and the road I follow.

I’ve prepared for you a photo post with the most important things I’m taking with me. It’s going to be an active trip, full of outdoor activities, trainings and running. That’s why I have so much sport clothes. I hope that it’s going to be a helpful guide when you will plan your own trip :)

I was happy here, because I haven’t started pack my stuff yet :)
  1. Softshell – jacket for the medium temperature
  2. Trekking shoes – must have for mountain and glacier trekking
  3. Warm jacket – will be helpful while trekking on Perrito Moreno glacier
  4. Jumper – as a middle layer
  5. Jogging shoes Nike – my favorite model Lunarglide, for a long distance running
  6. Caps – it’s going to be cold
  7. Thermal underwear – first layer, takes moisture away from the body and enables perspiration to evaporate quickly
  8. Warm gloves
  9. Leggings Robyn Cardio Bunny – Cardio Bunny is a partner of my trip and gave me a lot of sport equipment. Now I have no excuse but to train diligently J
  10. Leggings Courtney Cardio Bunny

  11. Drone Parrot Bebop 2 – for the best shots from different perspectives

  2. Bag for cables – helps to organize everything
  3. Notebook – the best, old-fashioned way to write down inspirations and observations while travelling
  4. Sunglasses with UV filter – sun has no mercy in the mountains
  5. Medicines – most of them are the painkillers for an altitude sickness and basic travel medicines
  6. Swich for electric sockets – my super-swich that works fine everywhere in the world
  7. E-book reader PocketBook – I don’t travel without books. It will help me to survive the 12–hours flight
  8. Power bank – I need an extra energy in places without electricity, like a dessert
  9. External drive – an extra place for my photos and movies
  10. Compressed oxygen – a few breaths and you can forget about altitude sickness
  11. Lipstick with UV +25
  12. Suncream UV 50+ – must have in mountains, where the sun has no mercy
  13. Mosquito repellent – MUGGA with DEET >10%
  14. Hand cleanser Carex – must have when travelling, essential to avoid every type of dirty hand diseases
  15. Cleansing tissues Carex – helpful during the long trip like the one from San Pedro de Atacama to Salar de Uyuni, where there is no possibility for a shower
  16. iPhone 6s Plus – navigation, apps and maps become handy

  1. Olu, jesteś dla mnie nieustającą inspiracją do działania. Trzymam kciuki za ciekawe przygody. Czekam na kolejne relacje. Znając Ciebie będzie co czytać, aje przede wszystkim skup się na czasie dla siebie i swoich potrzebach. Z niczym się nie spiesz. Dużo pozytywnych emocji i dobrych ludzi. Ale tego, jestem absolutnie pewien.

    1. Mikołaju! Ogromnie Ci dziękuje za wsparcie! Ty zawsze wiesz co napisać i tak pięknie dodać skrzydeł. Dziękuje za pozytywną energię i zawsze miłe słowa 😊 Dzięki temu, wiem że podążam w dobrym kierunku 😊

  2. Śledzę Twojego bloga od początku i muszę Ci powiedzieć,że sposób i tempo w jakim się rozwijasz jest niesamowity. Widać, że wszystko jest dopracowane i świetnej jakości. Miło się tu wraca i jeszcze nigdy się nie zawiodłam.Życzę Ci wspaniałej podróży i czekam na kolejne wpisy😊Pozdrawiam serdecznie

    1. Aniu bardzo Ci dziękuję za te słowa i docenienie mojej pracy😊 Bardzo się staram, aby ten blog był dla Was czytelny i inpirujący. Będę go cały czas ulepszać! Pozdrawiam ciepło!

  3. O świetnie że napisałaś o sprzęcie fotograficznym. Zdjęcia robisz zarąbiste i zadtanawiałem się czym je robisz😊 Powodzenia w tej podróży! Czekamy na relacje

    1. Tomku to super, że udało mi się wstrzelić z tematem :) Mam nadzieję, że to będzie pomocne :) Relacje będą na bieżąco w mediach społecznościowych :) Pozdrawiam serdecznie!

  4. I powiedzcie mi, że podróżnik musi być zaniedbany i w jednej koszulce przez 3 tygodnie :D Super , że łamiesz stereotypy i pokazujesz, że można ładnie i kolorowo! :) Pozdrawiam z Trójmiasta :)

  5. Zgadzam się z Lilią – ja też nie rozumiem skąd takie przekonania, że w podróży to w najgorszych ciuchach…Uważam, że można świetnie wyglądać w każdych warunkach i nie ma to związku z docenieniem podróżowania jak wielu twierdzi. Mam w Polsce jakieś chore podejście, że jak ktoś nie podróżuje z plecakiem i bez prysznica to nie jest prawdziwym podróżnikiem. Super, że pokazujesz, że można inaczej!

  6. Could you pease share what kind of battery/charger transition device youre using for your travel to deal with current changes :)? It would be also nice if you shared the compressed oxygen you recommend. Have a nice day!

    1. Hi :) I have an universal plug for almost every country in the world. As I remember I bought it on the airport in Dubai. It’s very useful, because you have all in one. And about the oxygen – I bought a polish brand (here you have a link: http://tlenwdomu.pl/tlen-w-sprayu/) – it’s very light and portable, so you can pack it to your backpack when you go trekking.
