Carry-On State of Mind

“If you wish to travel far and fast, travel light.”

When it comes to traveling, do you prefer to go the route of carry-ons or checked luggage? Between having my luggage mistaken and taken by another traveler a few years ago at Miami International Airport baggage claim (we both had the same Joy Mangano luggage and he totally missed the tags šŸ¤·šŸ¾ā€ā™€ļø), held luggage due to layovers and increased costs in checked bag fees, I prefer going with carry-on. Sooo, how does one pack using carry-on luggage, especially when traveling for more than a week?! Given airline luggage size and weight restrictions, I’ve managed to travel with only carry-on using Eagle Creek Compression Cubes, Hibag Compression bags and solid carry-on luggage such as Nautica Carry-On Expandable Spinner Luggage and TLS Mother Lode Weekender Convertible Junior……

I tend to move around quite a lot while in transit and find traveling carry-on not only cost effective but convenient, offering great ease maneuvering through airports and when it comes to hopping on and off trains and buses.
