What to Pack (on a Trip of any Length)

Date: April 20, 2018     Tags: travel

What to pack when traveling? An old adage suggests bringing half as much clothing and twice as much money. This is a list of the maximum amount of stuff one should ever need to cart around (and all of it except for what you'll be wearing will fit into a single carry-on-sized bag).

Eliminate items whenever possible. Minimize clothing by selecting a uniform (one or two) colour scheme. Choose fabrics carefully: natural fabrics wrinkle more easily and dry more slowly than modern synthetics. Learn to bundle wrap, to avoid wrinkles and save space. And remember that there are two kinds of luggage: carry-on and lost!
