I roll my clothes and fold my dresses. The rest fits around the edges, weighing in at around 23 pounds. It can get heavy on my back but if you saw the roads I walk on and the stairs I climb up, wheels don’t apply. I’ve fit my bag (with a few hefty shoves and grumbles) on every airplane & train so far, including smaller/budget flights. I think Air Asia will be the first airline I will need to check it as they have a tiny weight limit at 15lbs. I’ve lost a few items, broke a few, and threw a pair of new hiking shoes out after 2 weeks in Scotland. I shipped my original jacket home because it was too heavy, along with an extra dress I didn’t need. The list is ever evolving but what I have here seems to do the trick for now.

    An interesting take on this article would be the items you may have picked up along the way that you didnt realize you needed, or the items you are so glad you packed.

    • Thanks Charlie. I really haven’t picked up many things on the way, there’s no room! Just the beach bag, grocery bag and different jacket. I’ve been buying art along the way and mailing it home. I have also bought things and left them behind when done, like a fleece in Scotland and a raft in Croatia. One thing I always need are binder clips and ziploc bags. No way to keep food closed on the road. One thing I miss are my big noise canceling headphones, but they were too bulky. My sink stopper is something I’m glad I packed. Most sinks don’t have plugs and I save a lot of money by doing my own laundry.

    Theres a Youtube channel called traveling La Vagabond, where a couple from Australia are traveling the world funded by mainly a go fund me sort of site.

    • So true. I have had to walk up some crazy stairways in Croatia. I never would have made it with a roller bag.
