  1. You did well for your first one bag trip! If you can combine your active shoes with your walking shoes you’ll have one less set of shoes to bring. I usually do waterproof dress boots/dress shoes for winter (dress boots work for outside activities). I usually do dressy shoes with great treads (Merrell) for walking and good sandals for summer. The sandals can be worn as the dressy shoe. Flats will work if you keep hem lengths at knee height or higher.
    An iron is heavy. Think about rolling or bundle wrapping to preserve clothing – and get clothing that wrinkles less! If you must wear fragile shirts then think about a light weight packing folder, such as the Spectre folder from Eagle Creek.

    • Thanks a lot for the extra tips!
      And thanks, not quite a pro yet, but I’ll get there hopefully 🙂
      Great idea on the shoes, I found my trainers weren’t very good for walking so will have to invest in a more versatile pair – too many shoes? Never!
      I usually roll clothes, and don’t bring easily creased items, but you’re right, I didn’t think about the weight of the iron, just it’s teeny size.

      P.S. Thank you for my first ever comment! I’ve never heard that sound on my phone before! How exciting 🙂

  3. I think I’ve learned a lot in the past few years on how to travel lightly. I can pack for 4 days in a normal school backpack (with shoes!!) and I was amazed I was able to do that. However, if I’m going anywhere with friends, I always count on going out more (than with my family) so I tend to bring more stuff. We shall see how I’ve mastered this in few weeks because I have 2 vacations planned and I’m going by bus so I can’t be bothered with large suitcases…
    I definitely agree with your tips and, by the way, filling sturdy shoes with stuff is something I always tell people to do! 😀 – hence the post Pack with me
    p.s. forgot to write I love this post!!

  4. I have never been one to travel light. I remember a school trip when I was 15/16 to Berlin ans we went by train. My suitcase was so heavy that I couldn’t carry it up the stairs by myself. To my defense, there were alcohol bottles in it. But it was massive.

    When I went to the States for my time as an au pair, I went with two big suitcases, carry-on, backpack etc. And my mom sent me tqo gigantic packges with more stuff. It was insane. To my defence, I thought I wouldn’t be coming back after a year.

    I have gotten a lot better at packing what I really need though, but I usually pay for a suitcase cause I don’t want to deal with the stress. I feel like the weight restrictions are worse than the size of the carry-on luggage though. I love how you take a million things when visiting someone for a day or two cause same! I really hate packing!!! But what has helped me are packing cubes, a travel scale, vacuum bags etc. Really helpful travel gadgets.

    I still want to try rolling my clothes. I’ve seen videos and was amazed. And I also find it super important to keep toiletries in reach. Nothing annoys me more than being in the security line behind someone who just doesn’t know what he’s doing. I love some good travel tips cause it an be so stressful.
