I wanted to share the items I packed recently for a week away in NZ and it was under the 7kg limit for carry on. I always like the freedom that comes from traveling with only carry on luggage. All your belongings are with you, no waiting for bags etc. It's part of embracing minimalism, only having what you need and the clear feelings that come with it.
My week away was to the North Island of NZ visiting family and doing some mountain walks. So I needed some warm layers and good walking shoes. I took a combination of RANT and Bestowed garments along with a Merino wool zip up jacket and a waterproof/windproof parka.
I never ran out of clothes to wear and I was comfortable every moment. I took bamboo tops as I find you can get a couple of wears from them if you want because they don't hold odors and airing them out overnight works well.
Most of the tops I took had high necks for sun protection as the NZ sun burns quicker than here in Brisbane, believe it or not!
