In one week I will be a few hours away from landing in Shanghai airport for a six hour layover. Right now I am packing my belongings for six months in New Zealand. As someone who doesn't do much planning for the future it is tricky to decide which of my possessions I will use in the next half year, and which are wasted weight. They have shops in Kiwi-land, apparently, but I don't want buy something there if I have it here. So, I have gone through everything I possess and either chucked it, put it into storage or placed it into my suitcase.

Suitcase quickly filling up...
