My 55th Adventure Things I wish I would have known

First day on trek

USA | Sunday, 20 May 2018 | Views [422]

This will be about my porter who I thought wold be a super human. Turns out he's just a tough little guy that doesn't complain.

I  was given a duffle bag  from the trekking company.Inside were 2 basketball sized bags, a sleeping bag  and down Jacket.

What  I didnt know was that the porter would carry that duffle as a backpack. The guy looked so uncomfortable that it put a damper on my day. My advice is be kind to your porter. Buy a 65 liter backpack  if you can afford it and let him wear that and the 2nd thing is find a packable down Jacket.

End of story. 

Ps weigh your bag try to keep under 13 kgs.

Oh and bring a mirror.
