I highlighted some of the tips that I thought to be helpful, but ignored a few others. I will continue to check in my carry-on bag. I don’t mind paying extra when needed. It’s less of a headache. I don’t need to get on the plane and put stuff on the usually crowded overhead bin. I also don’t need to worry about the liquids rule. I like to walk on a plane feeling as light and free as possible. So far, I have never lost a piece of luggage. Once, our luggage arrived a day late and the airline delivered it to us.
Here are some of my favorite tips and reminders:
“I scan our passports and email them to myself so we always have a digital copy. You could also take a photo of your passport and keep it on your phone for easy access.”
I’m now looking forward to start use packing cubes. I hadn’t put much thought into them until I read this book. Reading this book motivated me to watch a bunch of You Tube videos on packing minimally and efficiently.
“You could have one large cube for your clothes, a small cube for underwear, and another for your electronic accessories—chargers, cables, etc. You know exactly where each item is kept, and when you need it, you just take out the appropriate cube.”
“… it doesn’t matter which bags or cubes you decide on—you could even use simple zip-lock bags—but make sure you do have an organisational system. It’ll create more space in your luggage and make packing and finding items so much easier.”
I'm a single bag guy, so this book was nothing new to me, but did offer some great ideas which I did not think of. More importantly, its not just one person's point of view, as the author interviews a dozen fellow single bag travelers to get their point of view relative to what to pack and what to leave behind. These are real people, not a cult, so I found it interesting to read what some people thought was essential and worth packing and what others left at home, and there is no perfect consensus. I enjoyed the different opinions.
And when I laid out everything to pack for a long trip I'd look at an item critically and question how many times have I actually used that giant Swiss Army Knife? Answer--none, not once in 20 trips. OK, I'll leave that at home. So the author made me question my own packing skills.
Also appreciative were the reviews on gear.
This is a quick read, and inexpensive book and if you are a traveler, you will love it.
