If you’ve ever travelled with me, you know I tend to underpack.
I try to fit as much as I can into a backpack or small duffel. When I went to Brisbane for a week and Fiji for 10 days, all I took was a backpack. And when I spent more than a month in Japan two years ago, I lugged around a duffel bag. That’s it.
But on this two-week jaunt to Europe, I decided to try a 20-inch check-in luggage roller. Nothing else. My only other bag is my little sling that fits a Kindle, notebook and not much more.
I will say, I could pack in a lot of stuff — with lots of room for souvenirs and omiyage — and it was easier to lug to Gate 10 at the far-flung United Airlines terminal.
So we’ll see. At least the bag fit in the overhead compartment. That’s a good sign!
