surely no harm can come of being overprepared?

Seanext-SnipThe past few days, I’ve been running various errands for my trip to southeast Asia. I went to MEC and got a bunch of travelly items, including a new bag (30L; I’ll be flying a lot, so my plan is to get everything I need into a carryon bag). I’ll post my packing list later. Today, I got my watch fixed, confirmed some bookings and printed out all the paperwork and guides I’ll ever need. Next week, I visit the dentist, the optometrist and the immunization clinic (still need another Hepatitis B shot).

This is by far the most-planned, most-researched, most-prepared trip I’ve ever taken. Quite different from my usual plan of ‘grab a guidebook at the airport and read it on the plane’.
