#7 Travel Tip: Traveling Lite

While it is tempting to bring every article of clothing or equipment for every possible climate or condition, it is not practical to carry excessive baggage. Too many bags are burdensome not only for yourself but for trip organizers and companions who must load, unload and keep track of every piece.

Airlines are “helping us” to pack smarter by enforcing baggage weight restrictions and adding fees. Consolidate clothing into a few essential layers. Choose footwear carefully wearing your main shoes and bringing only one additional lightweight pair. Use a carry-on back pack for books and fragile items such as binoculars and camera. In short, take only what you need!
