I will be honest, I don’t travel light and being a woman makes it a little harder to only use a carry-on as we have to pack hair gel, hairspray, makeup and other liquid products.
If you always check your bag too, here is a travel tip I always remember to do:
Pack a small plastic bag of emergency items in your backpack (or whatever you carry onto the plane) just in case your bags gets lost.
For example, I always pack one or two pairs of underwear, a bathing suit, a dress (if I’m going to warm weather), t-shirt and a sweater. If I’m going to colder weather, I will pack an extra pair of jeans. It all fits into a plastic grocery bag if they are all rolled up and it’s nice to know you have back up if your suitcase gets lost.
What other travel tips do you have?
