      Yes! I travel with a laptop all the time and so do many other travelers. 6 weeks is a long time, also, just make sure your hostels have lockers! That way you can lock up your laptop.

    I applause you for taking so little tops! I know you said you’d be washing, but I would be too lazy to do so lol.
    The only thing I would take extra is bra sack for extra money. Don’t trust pick-pocketers!

    Do you know approximately how much your bags weighs? Even if most things you pack are super light, it looks like it’s heavy. I’m a bit curious!
