People’s most transparent writings are often their journals or notes. Even a simple packing or to-do list can say a lot about who you are, how you think. In this new series, we look at people’s actual packing lists as windows into their travel style, and potentially, the places they’re going. We start with Seth M. Baker.

SETH WRITES “The attached packing list photo is from a brief trip I took to Cambodia from South Korea in October. I spent a six days in Siam Reap, visiting the temples, eating amok (fish curry), and getting my feet wet. The main streets were flooded from the same storms that slammed the Philippines only days before. I gave myself a headache converting from Korean won to Khmer riel to USD and back again.”
