Prompt #7: What kind of packer are you? (check out our week 1 bonus challenge below!)

How: Respond to the prompt – through a blog post, picture, video, drawing, tweet, comment at the bottom of this article – however you want to express yourself. Then tweet and link your response @BootsnAll with the hashtag #indie30
Week 1 theme: Getting to know you
Details: See below

There is one guiding question/prompt each day, followed by a series of questions, ideas, and comments meant to help you dig deeper. These aren’t meant to be answered directly, just to help (feel free to address any, all, or none of the guiding questions below).

What kind of packer are you?

  • Do you consider yourself a light packer?
  • A medium packer?
  • Do you bring everything including the kitchen sink with you?
  • Is there anything you’d like to change about your packing style?
  • Have you tried and failed at packing light? Why do you think that is?
  • What items can’t you live without when you travel?
  • What is the worst thing you ever forgot?
  • What is the one thing you can’t travel without?

Week 1 bonus challenge

Make us a video about packing. It could be you demonstrating what a master packer you are. It could be something practical, something funny, whatever you want. Maybe the next time you pack up to leave for your next destination, you wait until 15 minutes before you leave and videotape how to pack at the absolute last minute? Get creative for this one!

Tools and inspiration: Each day we’ll add a few links having to do with that day’s topic. If you’re experiencing a creativity block, maybe these can give you a few ideas:

Week 1: Getting to Know You

Each week will have a different theme, and since the entire idea behind this is to make meaningful connections with each other, every prompt this week will have to do with getting to know each other a little better by finding out more about we all travel.

How to participate

We’re inviting anyone from around the world who has a passion for long-term travel to participate in our month-long art project.

You can respond to each day’s prompt however you see fit – through a blog post, a photograph, a video, a painting, a tweet, a Facebook or G+ comment, commenting below – it’s completely up to you!

We’ll share our favorites each day on Twitter, Facebook, and Google +. At the end of each week we’ll round up our favorite responses and write a blog post linking to each.

Each Wednesday afternoon at 3:30 EST during April we’ll meld #RTWChat with #indie30. We invite anyone interested to join us to chat about that week’s topic.

It’s never too late to start – find out the nitty gritty details here!
