Deciding what to bring with me to Swaziland was difficult. There were too many things I wanted to pack because I had no idea of what I would be able to purchase in Swaziland.
The purpose of this list is to let you know what I use every day and whether or not it is available locally. Swaziland’s G15, I know you are out there. Please stop by and say hello or ask a million questions. And reference the list I made of my favorite items during
PST, because it is different from this list.
