So I’m a crazy packer, I always have been. Every vacation my family has went on I always pushed my luggage to the limit weight and have gotten my luggage lost a couple of times. For this particular trip, I want to challenge myself to 16 days worth of clothes to a backpack and a carry on luggage. I have done extensive research on this crazy form of packing and I’m very excited to see if I can actually do it. The trick that i’ve found is to pack only essential items that you can mix and match into many different outfits. That right there will be my main issue, because I tend to dress on how I feel, so who knows how I’ll feel on the second day of our trip versus the third! I also want to wear practical outfits, something that will make me comfortable in my body as well as doing movement. I do not want to limit my experiences here! I have also found that vacuum sealing bags are KEY, due to my budget I have purchased ziplock bags as as an alternative as well as my lungs as the vacuum (I’ll test it before we actually go). The last thing that I have learned is to get toiletries in the country you’re in. I’m not sure if that one will work out for me so I need to make sure I’m smart about packing my toiletries correctly for TSA checks. As long as I do enough planning I think this will be a very fun challenge to complete! I have already bought my carry on which has double sides to it giving me 2x as much room! Hopefully I can successfully complete my mission!
