Travel Light, Around the World

A Listmania! list by K Haugen "Traveling with Kids" (Oregon, USA)
The list author says: "After traveling in Europe, N & S America, N, S & W Africa and Asia, for work, for fun, with partner & kids and without, I know how I like to pack: preferably 1 bag I can carry-on; durable, lightweight, & versatile, with just enough gadgets to stay in touch. I also look for environmentally friendly, low-waste options & ANYthing that can ease going through TSA-style security (see my other Listmaina List: "TSA-Friendly, Convenient & Environmentally Friendly Travel Toiletries," "What's on my Keychain," and "Travel-friendly Tech Gadgets")"
