Andrew Hyde, a post social vagabond and a coder released a new service today called 15 things. The concept behind the service is simple – list 15 things you would carry when you are on the road. It is a great little concept that forces you to think what is important to you and why. I have always maintained that you should be able to pack your life in a single suitcase and this idea is not very different from that concept. Though the suitcase gives one the capacity to pack up to about 30 things.
I created my list but didn’t include basics such as socks, toiletries and underwear. I also didn’t include my medications. But frankly I could live in those 15 things for a long time. I did when I was traveling in Berlin, Munich, Paris and Delhi over past few months.
If I would miss anything – my nice outerwear cashmere coat and a few sweaters — otherwise life doesn’t have to be that complicated.
Here is my list by the way.
