“How can you travel with only one small carry-on bag?” Many people (especially women) think that you can never bring everything you need.
As an example, I will show you exactly what I bring and how I pack.
This is what I brought on a recent two week trip to Greece (for a writing retreat) and Tbilisi, Georgia (for a conference). I was prepared for both warm and cold weather, city and nature, work and leisure, with these ‘ingredients’:
- flip flop sandals
- 2 pairs of sneakers
- sports outfit
- jumping rope
- jeans, shorts
- a dress, a skirt
- 6 tops
- 3 t-shirts
- 1 blouse
- a vest
- leather jacket
- down jacket
- toiletry bag
- bikini and underwear (not in photo)
- and of course my macbook
- external harddisk
- private wifi (I am trying out We-Stream)
- the book I am updating
- my kindle
- lots of cables and chargers
It all fits in a carry-on bag (rolling your clothes is the secret to packing), which makes getting on and off planes and out of airports fast a breeze! Check out the Agile Travel Packing Cube I use.
By the way I still feel I carry way too much stuff…
In the video you see how I pack everything in my Eagle Creek bag.
What do you pack for travel, and how?
