We’ve been living out of a carry-on backpack for six years now. We love the freedom that travelling light gives us—we can pack our belongings in 10 minutes, walk around easily with all our luggage, and breeze through airports without queuing at check-in desks or baggage carousels.
That’s difficult for me to say. I feel an urge to diminish it. To say, it’s not a real book. It’s just about packing. It’s not a novel or memoir. It’s just self-published. Which is ridiculous because I read plenty of self-published non-fiction books that I consider “real” books. I don’t even want to write a novel or publish traditionally.
The difference between people who travel carry-on only and those who don’t is not necessarily what they pack but how they pack. This post shares my tips on how to use packing cubes to fit more in your carry-on luggage.
