What i’m packing for my year+ trip// Clothing

This is such a hard one i’ve looked at other people packing videos and blogs for what to pack for a year long trip, but i could be away longer i’m also going to places with more that just a sunny climate so i need winter things…

Most people seem to pack summer things a few staple winter pieces and buy the rest when needed and send some things home. Now this would be fine if you knew your travel plans beyond a year bu i don’t i’m not sure if i want to live and work in another country, i’m not sure is i want to go to just hot country after or if ill be going to places in winter, so posting things back is probably not going to happen.

i’ve probably going to have packed way too much but i’ve never done a trip like this and every item i look at i feel ill need, so hard.
