While traveling on my own, I have learned so much about the essential of having a light baggage. Since I was hopping from one train to the other, walking so much, a heavy load on your bag wouldn’t help you so much and can drain you out so easily. One of the things I’ve learned and wouldn’t believe at first was to bring only a few clothes I’d really wear when I travel.
When you take out the things you think you would use, you actually wouldn’t only NEED 50 percent of these clothes. TRUST ME, I’ve learned the hard way on this. I just got lucky since when I arrived in Benelux area, I actually had to take a pit-stop at my best friend’s place and left 50% of what I originally brought with me.
One of things you should learn when you travel light is how you can avoid wrinkling of your clothes and to actually bring as much without needing for a second bag. I tried the rolling of clothes method. Although I was able to fit in a lot, I actually had to live with the wrinkled clothes. Not a good sight when you don’t have a jacket. Good thing it was winter. I didn’t have to expose my non-ironed clothing. So what’s the solution to this? That’s when Bundle Wrapping comes in. It was pure genius whoever invented this method as it’s been helluva heaven sent for backpackers like me. Illustration is below and thanks to onebag.com for providing this!
