Once you’ve tried travelling lighter you’ll just want to keep improving on it. Clearly I can’t rave enough about it!
Since my first trip I’ve now travelled with my 5 kilo bag into the North Western Australian outback (including Sydney, Darwin and Perth). I travelled solo to South East China, a romantic holiday in Fiji, a family holiday in Queenstown NZ over winter, and many local trips in New Zealand. And I’ve got lots more planned. It really is fun, and I just love the freedom it gives me.
Packing less is different for everyone. For some it may be 15 kilos or 10 kilos.
Whatever weight you decide to carry just remember those basic rules.
- Take less
- Wash more
- Buy light
- Reduce amounts
