The Carry-On Traveller: The Ultimate Guide to Packing Light
Save money, time, and stress by never checking a bag again
Have you ever struggled with packing for a trip? You can’t decide what you’ll need, so you pack for every scenario and take far too much. You struggle to fit everything in your bag, you get stressed lugging it around, and you pay a fortune in airline luggage fees.
The Carry-On Traveller will teach you not only how to lighten your load, but how to pack everything you need into a single carry-on-sized bag. You can apply these strategies to any trip, whether you are travelling for a week or a year, to hot or cold climates, alone or with kids.
By traveling carry-on only, you’ll save time at airports, avoid wasting money on checked luggage fees (which are increasingly common), and reduce the stress of hauling bulky bags.
It’s not an all or nothing approach. Packing light is a learning process, and you might want to take it gradually. Even if you don’t travel carry-on only on your next trip, this book will help you pack lighter.
“The book gave me some great ideas on where I can pack less and how to pack better. My backpack right now is about a third less full than usual because I got rid of a lot of the ‘what if’ items I normally bring.” Dani Heinrich, GlobeTrotterGirls.com

Why I wrote this book
The advice in this book is based on my six years of experience traveling full-time to over 30 countries with just a carry-on backpack. I wrote this book because I believe packing light is the secret to stress-free travel. I’ve saved myself money, time, stress, and backache. Most importantly, I’ve gained freedom—I can pack all my belongings in ten minutes and head off on the next adventure.
