There are millions of tips out there on how to travel. For me the #1 thing that is sure to set me off is having too much stuff. I HATE carryon items. All I want is my backpack… that’s it. I don’t want to stow anything in the overhead compartments. I don’t want to be running through the airports or train stations with giant suitcases that has wheels which always get stuck on something. I STRESSES me out. My type-A perfectionist, maybe a little OCD self cannot handle it. And when I can’t deal… I get snappy and frustrated.
How best to combat it? I don’t know… honestly I haven’t figured it out yet. I’ll let you know the minute I do. No matter how many times I pack, unpack and repack… I always bring exactly twice the amount of stuff I will ever use. Someone please tell me how to pack minimalistic-ally (is that a word?) !!! Oh… and travel pillows… THE WORST~
