Travel Light – Tips

When we are travelling, the last thing we want is over responsibility of the stuff we don't need and the increase in the size of our baggage as we move from one destination to another. Believe it or not, to travel light is actually an art that involves foresightedness and attentiveness to take only those items that are necessary and eliminating anything else that can later seem like a burden. However, the trick is to know what items to keep and what items to leave behind.

Checklist
This should be your gospel before you even start planning a trip. You can start listing items you require as per the number of days you plan to stay, the weather, the itinerary etc. These simple steps will make you figure out exactly what items you require. Make sure every item you pack must meet the 3 defining criteria’s, leave out the one that doesn’t.

Mix and Match
Holiday attire is always breezy and light. Enjoy the freedom from following the code and explore numerous possibilities by mixing and matching your wardrobe. Keep neutral colors handy just so that you can match them with everything and eliminate the need to take everything that matches with one another.

Choose smaller pieces
Whatever it is that you are packing, just see if you can substitute it with something smaller and more concise. You will be amazed at all the space you will save and you can carry any other important item that you were planning to leave behind.

Pack tight
This trick is very helpful if you have too much stuff and too little space. When you pack tight, you can make way for other things that can be easily stuffed into the bag. You can also bundle wrap your clothes.
