Off to Asia!: 2 weeks with a <15 lb bag

I’m off to Taiwan (to see family), Vietnam (to vacation with friends) and Hong Kong (for a quickie dim sum layover blitz). I met my goal to fit 2 weeks’ worth of stuff into my Osprey Farpoint 40 liter pack with the total pack weighing less than 15 pounds (not including food/water, I squeaked in at 14.8 pounds). So nice to be able to fit all my luggage under the seat in front of me. And so lovely to have art supplies instead of my laptop and a stack of work papers. I’m bringing my watercolor brush pens and fabrics I designed and printed with Spoonflower so I can get some tops made while I’m in Hoi An. Check ’em out drying pre-flight in our backyard:
