Update:This sections requires some major rework, a lot of things have been changed, especially since I'm not travelling in cold Europe anymore and because I'm no longer cycling by myself.

When I check out travel blogs I always go straight for the gear section so I will try to be as precise as possible in describing what I took with me.

Gear, of course, is always subject to change as you go along and stuff breaks, is no longer needed or needs to be changed due to climate changes etc.

This is what I took with me when I left home:
