How To Pack Your Bag Light While Travelling

By  | 

The weekend is here and we cannot stop wanderlusting. The monsoon only adds to the feeling of packing our bags and leaving for some place new, some place else. But, whether you are going for a day trip or are traveling for longer, it is essential to keep the weight you carry to the minimum. This way, you will have more energy for your long awaited adventure. However, no matter how hard we try, this is something that is a bit of a trying task, sometimes, a little more than difficult to achieve.

This is where we step in. Follow these tips and you will have a safe and light journey!

Take Only What You Need

1. Go Digital

Take your smartphone along and download a few applications (if your phone does not already have them) that help you strike off the torch, the map and the compass from the list. Your smartphone’s camera will also help you ditch the camera. Also, carry a portable charger along so that your journey does not get discharged.

2. Take Three Sets Of Clothes

Wear one, wash one, dry one! Choose light and quick-dry materials that will not wrinkle. It is that simple 😀

3. Carry Only The Absolute Essentials

Buy toiletries and basics at the location. Also, instead of carrying two pairs of shoes, wear a pair of dark, waterproof shoes. Make sure they are durable and you are comfortable in them. You should also pack some medicines in case of emergency.

Choose The Right Bag

1. Get A Feather Light Bag

Choose a bag with curved and cushion padded straps. This will help your shoulders feel better.

Fit Them All Together

1. Roll It Up

Roll up your clothes instead of folding them. Fill in the free space on the sides with smaller items.

2. Pair Them Up

Pack items of the same size together. Wear your heaviest clothes and shoes while changing locations.

3. Pack In Order

Start with objects you will not need during the day and finish with frequently used items. Place the heavier ones closer to your back.

The golden rule while traveling light is to take along a really good item that will not fail you and save the space and weight of spare items.
