Travel Light and Smart to the US

April 4th, 2013 | Posted by usadmin in Travel - (Comments Off)

To pack and travel light is all about identifying the most important things you need to carry with you during your trip. It is all about bringing what you know you will have to use. It is about knowing that no matter how much you want to bring something, it doesn’t follow that it is also a necessity.

Write a list.

Always prioritize items when you make a “to bring” list. List down all the items you WANT to bring, and evaluate each carefully according to its value. Not only does a “to bring” list serves as a reminder but it also helps you weed out which items you DON’T actually need.

Pick ONE bag.

Once you have the final list of the most important items, choose a bag—yes, just one. Depending on what kind of traveller you are, you can use a hard-sided suitcase, a duffel bag or a hiking pack. If possible, choose a bag small enough to be a carry-on.

Choose ONE pair of shoes.

It will be of big help if you won’t bring extra pairs of shoes aside from the pair you will be wearing on your departure. Choose the pair of shoes that will work with the clothes you bring.

Bring detergent.

To travel light and smart also means to be resourceful of what you have. You won’t need your entire wardrobe for a 7-day trip to the US. What you need is just laundry detergent so you can wash and wear your clothes as necessary.

Bring as few gizmos as you can.

No matter how much you want to bring your iPad and laptop with you, it doesn’t mean that they are essential to your trip. Not only do they add to the bulk of your baggage, but they also invite thievery. So it is best to leave behind whatever is unnecessary.

Why Do Americans Travel Light?

A common notion among people is that the longer the stay, the more things we should need to pack. However, that impression is so untrue. Most Americans always travel light and smart every time they travel.

Ease

Travelling light is travelling with ease. Not only does packing light requires only a little time of preparation, but having a lighter suitcase or backpack allows easier mobility. You can get to your destination with only a little effort.

Security

Being able to carry your baggage yourself makes it secured. When you don’t need to check in any baggage, you eliminate the chances of experiencing baggage mishandling. Thus, you give yourself peace of mind because you know that your things are safe with you and not one is missing.

Economy

Aside from mishandling, airlines have extra charge for checked-in baggage. So you can save a few dollars if you don’t have a second bag with you. You can use a suitcase, a duffel bag, or a hiking pack small enough to be brought in the plane.

Convenience

When everyone else is waiting for their things on the baggage carousel, you can walk pass them to where you are heading to. In cases of connecting flights, it is quite inconvenient for travellers to collect their baggage then re-check it.

Comfort

It is more comfortable if you bring only one bag with you when travelling from point A to B. It is never easy to carry heavy bags, and therefore, it doesn’t give you the comfort you desire. In addition to that, you will enjoy it all the more if you walk the streets to discover the beauty of the place, rather than take the cab just because of your heavy bags.
