On my last trip to US in 2014, my luggage was lost for all of 4 days. This time around I decided that there was no way I was letting that happen to me again! And I could think of only one way to achieve this for sure… yepp, you guessed it.. carry-on only.
So before I left for my trip, I pulled out my little green carry-on (4 wheel version), and did my best to fit it all in. And guess what? Packing for two weeks, including extra stuff for a friend.. I did it! It all fit in my green friend + a handbag (for the stuff I needed on the plane, like pc, ipad, toothbrush, book ++). Talk about getting down to “basics” 🙂
So what did I bring? Well, too much if you ask me.. but for some reason it was as good as I managed at that time!
Here we have it… my list of items:
More than enough stuff, wouldn’t you say?
I writing this 6 days into my trip, and I’m curious to see, how much of this I’ll actually use throughout my trip. I’ll keep track and write a follow up, when I get home. I’m hoping I can tweak the list going forward..
You see, I have this dream/wish/hope that I one day will manage to withle my list of things I pack for a trip, down to something that will fit in a small backpack (yes, something way smaller than my regular carry-on) 🙂
Will I succeed? Well… I guess, only time will show…
Minimalist packers out there? Any ideas about reducing the list? Yes, yes please… I need all the help I can get 😉
