How to Travel with only a Carry-On

Tuesday, April 16th, 2013

Want to successfully travel with just a few things? Well, everybody does. Packing for travelling is not always easy. There are so many things to take, and so much to consider that one bag just never seems enough, and two may appear inadequate as well. However, with the right tips and knowledge, travelling with only a singular bag is possible. The following will teach you how to travel with only a carry-on and still have the items that you will want and need.

Pick The Right Bag
The most important thing that you can do in order to travel lighter is to choose the right bag. Carry-ons come in a wide variety of styles, colours, and capabilities. Make sure that you choose one that has many different compartments inside of it. These compartments will help to serve as guides in organisation and keep you prepared to pack more in a smaller space.

Shoes on Bottom
The best thing to do when you want to know how to travel with only a carry-on is to pack smartly. It would make no sense to put something that could potentially be soiled on top of your clean clothes. In order to protect your garments, be sure to pack shoes at the bottom of the case with the souls down. This helps you to make sure that any dirt that was on the bottom of these is not transferred to the clothing and that you have the most room for other things. You will know how much room, exactly, by placing these items down first and then gauging from there. Shoes on the bottom will also help to create a support system that can be greatly helpful in keeping the bag stabilised.

Layer As You Carry
Another great tip for how to travel with only a carry-on is to wear part of your wardrobe the day you travel. If you take a big and bulky outfit that you want to bring but it will not fit, simply wear it instead. By layering before you get on the plane or begin to travel, you are taking a large chunk of the space that would have been occupied in your bag and freeing it up for other items.
