Hi, I'm Katherine!

I help travellers, like you, to learn to pack less in your carry on luggage and enjoy your travels more

Join me as I aim to inspire, guide, and gently cajole you to travel light! It's an amazing experience. 

I want to show you how you can carry less but not miss a thing!

You're in the right place if you...

  • Have no idea where to start with how to travel light.
  • Think you need a wardrobe full of travel clothes.
  • You're tired of lugging heavy bags around.
  • Want to pack a well put-together travel capsule wardrobe.
  • Think you can't pack light and pack with style.
  • Are after easier, faster travel.
  • Want greater security, independence, and freedom because everything you have is in your carry on luggage.
