The Guide to Lightening the Travel Load
Traveling with light luggage has been a common rule known to
many travelers. It is a very common, and simple, guide yet it
still remains as the most violated one. Didn't they say that the
simplest rules are the ones hardest to follow?
Surely, one has to pack everything that is needed for the trip.
Never leave anything that is definitely going to be used during
the trip. For over-anticipating possibilities during a trip, the
luggage may end as a heavy burden for a short trip.

garments, such as the socks, should be placed to fill the spaces
between the larger clothes.
4. If during the trip, you accumulated souvenirs, it is cheaper
to have those shipped home instead of bringing them together
with the luggage. If these are fragile, make sure that these are
insured. Another option is to have some clothes shipped home
instead, and pack the souvenirs with the luggage or in the
These tips will definitely ease one's worries when preparing for
the next trip.
