The 2009 Nomad Packing List

On Tynan

Our most popular Life Nomadic article last year was our complete packing list. Since then we've learned a lot, made a lot of changes, and managed to pack a lot more into the same tiny amount of space.

There are a few areas where slight improvement could be made, which you'll hear me talk about in the video, but overall this collection of stuff represents everything a traveler needs to travel through just about anywhere on the planet, live comfortably, and keep connected.

I've consolidated most of the stuff I pack into an Amazon store, which you can access here: Life Nomadic Store. If you use that link, or the Amazon links below, I get a commission. Other good places to buy this sort of gear are ebay and outdoor shops like REI and MEC, although neither store carries most of the gear.

London's Best Markets

On Imported Blog

London is an incredible city and certainly tops my list (so far) of the best places to visit. Most of my weekends in London are spent dancing in quirky clubs, walking through the beautiful Hyde Park on a rare sunny day and shopping in the hosts of open air markets. The latter however, was by far one of my favorite activities and every Saturday my friend and I would visit a different market, only to find ourselves falling more in love with this amazing city. If you have the chance to spend a day or two in London, the open markets are certainly a must-see and most are easily accessible by the tube and a short walk.


London’s famous Borough Market can only be accurately described as a food lover’s paradise. It is space where the scent of fresh artisan bread, an array of fried delicacies and massive chocolate bars make it nearly impossible for anyone to resist. Boasting food from all over the world, this market truly reflects London’s cultural and ethnic diversity.
