In this video we’re tackling the confusing world of carry-on packing. What is the true size of a carry-on suitcase? What can you bring on board? How to pack like a minimalist? We even do a test-pack to show you what we’d pack on a long term trip.
We are big fans of traveling light with only the essentials to carry around. Travel doesn’t just end at the airport. Whatever you pack for a trip has to be hauled around in taxis, on the bus, on the train, in and out of hotels and hostels.
With some careful planning, you can have a great trip with small, easy to handle luggage.
A few other reasons why we love carry-on packing is because you can save money by not paying to check a bag, you don’t have to wait for your luggage to unload from the plane and waste time at the carousel, and you don’t have to worry about losing your luggage or having someone take it by mistake.
Here are a few TSA (Travel Security Administration) websites to help you figure out what you can, and can’t bring on board. It varies by airline and by country. We chose these links based on the top countries that watch our videos 🙂
