Packing & Paperwork

All those boring but necessary travel details: passports, entry visas, packing lists, trip insurance, health insurance, customs regulations, and all the other super-fun pre-trip preparations

The trip is planned, and you're raring to go... but wasn't there something else to do?

Ah yes, pack. And what about all those other details: passports, visas, customs regulations, student IDs, and health and trip insurance?

Unexciting as these things are, they're an integral part of getting ready for a trip—and some of the first things to take care of, even before you buy a plane ticket (after all, it can take up to 10 weeks to get a passport).

This section will try to make handling these details as easy and painless as possible.

Along with pointers to where to get download passport forms and shop for health and travel insurance there's a comprehensive section on precisely what you'll need to travel, so you can pack your entire world into one bag (and a moneybelt for your valuables) and have twice as much fun on the road as people who brought four times as much stuff (and too many electronic devices).
