Packing Light – especially when you will be moving and changing locations a fair bit – may mean the difference between an enjoyable vacation and a miserable one! Nobody says, “I wish I had packed more” when they return from a vacation.
PBS European travel guru, Rick Steves, limits the members of his escorted tours to one carry-on size piece of luggage, even when the trip is 3 weeks long! Can’t be done? Yes, it can…and it should! I’ve done it myself and schlepped my one carry-on and small backpack all over Barcelona and Mallorca while I shot a TV series for two weeks! Was it hard? Yes! Still, the advantages outweighed the disadvantages considerably!
You won’t worry about big suitcases and where you’ll fit your luggage on the train or bus or taxi. Many overseas hotels have no elevator, so lugging heavy bags up and down stairs can be a real bummer.

Checked luggage fees can really add up, especially on international flights. Carry on your suitcase and you’ll have more money for fun activities in your destination.
You’ll gain back valuable vacation time not having to wait around at luggage carousels in strange airports or having to get there early to wait in line to check your bags to the next destination.
