The Travel Word, a fantastic travel blog and newsletter, asked me to contribute a piece specifically for female travelers. I decided that I had a bit of knowledge to pass on regarding how to pack light for short trips, without compromising style, fashion, or your cool-factor.
It took living in Europe and refusing to pay exorbitant checked-baggage fees on low-cost airlines for me to finally quit my over-packing habit and move towards a Holly Go-Travel-Lightly attitude. It totally worked, and not only do I pack more lightly and save more money, I actually enjoy traveling through airports more: my bag is lighter, and I don’t have to wait for it at the other end! Fab. Check out my 10 tricks to living the carry-on life, and start traveling lighter and more freely – you’ll become a convert in no time.
