Traveling anytime soon?

I know I am, and can’t wait to get myself inside a plane again... but if you are the kind that dread trips, or find them to be a pain in the bum, read on:

A lot of you have asked me...
"How in the heck can you travel with only ONE backpack?!?!"

My answer has always been "Ha-ha...well... Practice makes perfect. And since there is no such thing as perfection, you can however count on practicing!"

Really, my general rule is to pack once, then twice, removing several items each time until you get it through your head that you don’t need EVERYTHING. And the key word here is "NEED."

Oh yes, and those roller suitcases... forget it. They weigh several pounds more than a normal backpack would, and take up 2-3 extra inches. With today's airport madness, you'll find these restrictions bothersome. Youre much more mobile with a backpack.

But as vague as those statements were, I found a site that buckles it all down to the basics so you too can travel with the bare minimum and save yourself the headache of over packing!

Happy travels!
