How To Travel with a
Carry-On Size Bag for 12˝ weeks!

 



I
f you're a tried-and-true traveler, I'm probably preaching to the converted, but here goes: When packing, remember: less is more! Cut down on how much you pack and you also cut down on aching arms, packing time, and inconvenience. Convinced? Here are some suggestions that have worked for me:
  • pack washable, comfortable clothes in colors that mix and match (non-wrinkle is best)
  • ask the experienced travelers you know how much they pack, and learn from them
  • pack clothes you can wear in layers, for warmth
  • pack your suitcase, then carry it around the block with you. Still want to take all those clothes?

For our January-March trip to Buenos Aires, I traveled in black casual pants, long sleeve jersey top, short jacket, rain coat and comfortable walking shoes.

 

The following items were packed in my carry-on size suitcase:
  • 2 pairs of nice jeans (black, tan)
  • 1 pair of belted (beige) casual pants
  • smart casual tops in a variety of sleeve lengths
  • 8 changes of socks and undies
  • a nightgown
  • terry slippers
  • 1 pair of comfortable walking shoes (tan)
  • meds and vitamins
  • mini umbrella
  • fold-up bags for souvenirs
  • toiletries (liquids in small quantities, according to the rules)

Once each week, we dropped the laundry off in the morning and picked it up later the same day - washed, dried and folded, at a very reasonable cost.

Packed separately:
  • laptop computer, power cord, headset
  • digital camera, recharger, extra battery, memory cards, USB connector
Happy Travels! Linda
