We’re almost at the end of our twelve days in Europe. I’ve moved around a lot and it’s making me glad that I packed so lightly!
It’s important for me to feel comfortable as I travel (I’m much easier to be around) but I also try to be realistic about the space limitations. I’ve been reducing my toiletries and carry-on components over the last few years and now, using my Asana checklist, I have my list down to the essentials (for me ;).
And I pack it all together in my carry-on!
+ I also sometimes take items for a habit or experiment. I am stretching this month and didn’t need anything for it. I am still oil-pulling so I packed a small container of coconut oil.
+ I use hotel soaps and shampoos (and conditioner as shaving cream). Dr. Bronner's magic soaps can be a multi-use cleanser if you want to take something instead.
+ This post is for a trip with a long flight to another country. If the trip is shorter or more local, my needs obviously go down ;)
+ When I travel with Greg, we also take an iPad for show-watching and crosswords together. It’s nicer to travel with if I don’t need my laptop for work. I may also use his razor or comb which I usually don’t pack for solo trips ;)
