So what can you do to pack lighter? Its always a question - how can I take less but have enough? We have an upcoming adventure 140 days, 57 on a ship the rest on the ground.
We always seem have too much luggage and we bring things home that we never put on! So I am working hard on how to pack smarter and lighter! This way we can travel easier by train and on flights in country (all have weight restrictions). Ok I accept the challenge, here we go!
- Step 1 - we need a carry on that will accommodate a laptop and double as luggage for maybe 10 days. Started to do research on backpacks (no we are not planning to travel with ONLY a backpack) but if it can do multiple things - awesome. I started to do research and there is what we opted to start with. eBags Motherlode TLS Weekender Convertible
Step 2 - more cubes and envelopes (its how we pack)
Step 3 - what about more than 5 days - bought a portable washing machine - Scrubba
Step 4 - sleep sacks (never had one before BUT what can be wrong with sleeping in silk?)
Stay tuned for more updates (in other words part 2)
