Although it seems like I just got home, it is time to leave again. I have flown more in the past 2 and a half years than I have my entire life.
This trip is serious in nature, although we will have time with the kids and grands (yippee!!!), which will definitely lighten the mood.
Pat and I are heading north together. Since we are flying a carrier that charges for checked bags, we will be only taking carry-ons.
Last time I was up north, (two weeks ago) I was discussing with a friend how I was able to pack for 6 days with only a carry-on. This was a new concept for her and in case it is new for you, here are a few links that will inspire you to travel light:
Miss Minimalist travels with only a large purse for a long weekend.
Or is she is gone longer than a week, she takes a carry-on.
The everyday minimalist packs a duffle bag for a month long trip to Asia.
Wiki-how tells how to pack your carry-on.
And... four shirts are all you need.
When we travel by car, I like to be prepared with food, beverages, blankets, etc. When I travel by air, I like to, and am learning to, travel light.
How 'bout you?
