Is there a support group for over-packers? Cause there should be.
As far as I can see there are pretty much two groups of travellers: Those who bring too much crap and those who don’t.
One group of traveller struggles. Groans. Swears. And misses their train connection cause they can’t actually get their gargantuan rolled luggage down the stairs. I’ve been that girl.
Then there’s the other group who looks calm. Collected. In control. These types smugly saunter through the crowds wearing a Patagonia backpack the size of a Big-Mac as they poo poo the crowds at the checked baggage belt.
I’d love to say I’m in the second category. But I’m just not. Not yet.
But I’ve got a dream…and it’s to travel lighter.
So I’ve wrangled together a collection of the best carry on luggage that can help in that mission. Hopefully it’s better than joining over-packers anonymous, no?
