My Packing List: Zanzibar, Tanzania

In less than a week i'll be on the other side of the world yet again for a great adventure. I always develop flight anxiety around this time and try to combat it with positive energy as much as possible. One method that I have found helpful in combating traveler's anxiety is making lists and writing everything down. Hence my ultimate packing list came to be!! I swear by this method. Sometimes it makes me over pack but I rather have everything I need in case of an emergency situation. Like that time I lost my Visa debit card in southeast Asia; but that's a different story that I will tell later. In the meantime, here's my packing list for my upcoming trip to Zanzibar, Tanzania in October. If you have any suggestions and add ons leave them in the comments below.
