Lightweight one bag travel isn’t as hard as you think. Learn from my mistakes and travel better now!
Category: Lightweight Travel
You might think lightweight travel is only about the sacrifice. However, it’s just a different way of looking at travel. Rather than pack everything you might need, the focus is on the essentials. You take what you really need and opt for items that serve multiple purposes. As you become more sophisticated, you might find it gets much easier to leave things at home. The ultimate goal is to enjoy the journey as much as the destination.
We firmly believe lightening your load and carrying less is one of the best ways to improve your overall travel experience. You relieve yourself of the burden of roll-around bags. Excessive “stuff” is a thing of the past. And who wants to track multiple pieces of luggage throughout their journey? Packing becomes easier and moving about feels liberating. This is specially true if you can reduce your load to one bag, preferably a backpack.
Have a look at the various posts in this category for lots of ideas to simplify your vacation and adventure activities. We endorse and support simple, ethical, lightweight travel and fun. Once you embrace a better way, it’s hard to go back to the heavy loads, multiple bags and stress that comes with it.
So, enjoy your travels. Go far and go light.
