Travelling is always an exhilarating adventure and challenges sometimes seem to coincide with that experience. One of the biggest challenges we face when embarking on our travels is perfecting our regime of what to pack. Often the savviest of travelers and digital nomads don’t want the hassle of transporting huge carrier bags around. I mean who has time for that? So if you consider yourself as a traveler who only likes to take the necessities (all in one carry-on bag) then the following tips are sure to prove beneficial.
Choose the right lightweight carry-on bag
Your carry-on will become your whole life on any trip. It will be with you constantly and become part of your everyday existence while traveling. In that case it’s vitally important we choose one that is the perfect fit for you and your traveling lifestyle. Choosing a carry-on that is as versatile as it is lightweight will instill confidence in you that you are traveling right (and of course light). This ultimate travel carry-on is one that fits the onboard cabin dimensions but still is spacious enough to carry everything you require. Having been cleverly designed as a 3 in one combination, with the ability to be a suitcase, backpack and shoulder case. Yes please! When it comes to the all-important interior, it has ample storage compartments for all your precious belongings. The best and most valuable asset of this carry-on baggage is that it only weighs 3.7 pounds but holds up to 45l. We’ll take two!
Pack only a weeks’ worth of clothes
This is essentially the key to traveling light with your carry on. Pick out a weeks worth of clothing that can be color coordinated with all garments in your travel wardrobe. Choose items like light shirts that work for both day and nighttime. Less is always more when traveling with just carry-on luggage. However If you are going traveling for an extended period of time you can freshen your clothes at a laundry or always purchase items as you go along. We all know how exciting shopping in other countries can be!
Pack your bag then remove 50% of it
It may seem like a strange approach but it really does work. We have a general tendency to always over pack so by strategically removing 50% of what is loaded into the carry on, we essentially leave ourselves with only the must haves. That’s all you require!
Wear your heaviest items on your traveling days
On the days you have to catch flights or other forms of transport wear your heaviest items, which may be jeans, jacket and your runners. A very simple tactic but it works really well for reducing the load you need to put in your carry on.
Packing light will allow you the ability to have better mobility. You will be able to breeze through airports and countries with your lightweight carry-on. Are you ready for hassle free adventures by traveling light?
