Given that many of you will soon be packing for end-of-year travels, I thought I’d let you know how my experiment with travelling lightly went.
(You remember – I only took a carry-on for my five week book tour. Details here.)
In a word – fantastic!!
It helped that all of my travels were complete before the snow started to fly. And that the clothes I brought rolled up tiny. I would like to nominate the person who invented Dri-Fit fabric for a Nobel prize in something. In everything.
I did have laundry done in a couple hotels, which was expensive, but not as expensive as checking a suitcase on every flight would have been.
But I will never again hesitate to bring only the bare minimum. It was very freeing, physically and mentally, to travel so lightly.
A couple of you wondered where I got the suitcase and the purse that turned out to be so incredibly durable and easy to clean. Plus they looked cool. I bought them at Sherpani. In addition to being the best bags I’ve ever owned, they are largely made from recycled materials.
Travel lightly, my friends!
