We're off to Iceland at the end of the week. So I took the opportunity to pack my bag as much as I can in preparation - mainly to check that I have enough clean clothes, but also to get a feel for what I might need to leave behind.

While it is pretty challenging to pack for a couple of weeks with only carry-on baggage, it's also pretty liberating being able to carry everything I need (ish) with me in relative comfort.

The countdown has begun.
