[travelling] 6 tips on how to pack lite in style when you travel

Many airlines, not only budget airlines have tightened their check-in baggage allowance and makes it so much more difficult for us to pack, now here are some tips on how to pack lite but in style when you travel!

 

Packing lite doesn’t mean you have to travel like a backpacker, you can still pack what you need and what you want.  I used to buy a lot of travel magazines and books to research for my trip, but instead of bring a dictionary thick Lonely Planet I would rather bring a laptop of a tablet instead.  I would either purchase the e-book or simply just go to forums and blogs to check out what’s new about the place where I’ll be visiting.

 

This is the time to make use of samples and trial sizes of your skincare and body care products, if not just pack the most basic skincare essentials like cleanser and moisturizer if you’re worried about skin reaction and allergies.  Other things just buy what you need from the local drug store or convenience store when you arrive, or simply just use what’s there at the hotel.

 

I have heard many stories about towels at the hotel, so I stress to bring my own.  Instead of bringing the big soft bath towel at home, I bought a light weighted quick dry travel towel.

 

Next is to choose a pair of comfortable and stylish sneakers, a pair of white plain Converse or Adidas is all you need.  Keep in mind that sneakers and shoes are very space consuming and I wouldn’t recommend to wear sandals or slippers or flip flops on your trip, because they are really bad for your feet and back!

 

You can skip bring extra pairs of shoes or pants but you can’t skip bring any less underwear!  When I visit Hong Kong or other Asian cities, I would stock up some disposable underwear for my future getaways, and they are economical and clean!  Sometimes I would do some of my laundry at the hotel but I will never wash any underwear in the public washers.

 

The last but most important thing is to bring a few compression bags for travelling that don’t require a vacuum to seal.  These bags are best for any newly shopped clothes or dirty laundry, extra space saving and makes packing on your way back home a lot easier!

 

 

 

除了廉航不少航空公司都開始收緊托運行李限額,所以在收拾行李的時候務必要注意怎樣去程的時候可以打包的梗輕便,以便去血拼的時候還有位置可以擺放戰利品。

首先,避免攜帶紙質旅遊書,最理想的就是選購電子閱讀本,這樣就可以放在iPad或者平板電腦內隨身攜帶。紙質旅遊書較重,而且現在不少人都會選擇利用平板電腦查看不少旅遊博客,因為資訊隨時更新比起旅遊書更update。換句話說,比起帶一大堆紙張資料最好還是帶備一部輕便平板。

另外就是打包身體護理或者皮膚護理品的時候,盡量只帶必需的,而且還是要旅行裝或者試用裝。其實如果擔心皮膚敏感需要使用平時用慣的,一般帶備洗臉乳和保濕乳就ok,其餘的例如身體乳液或者洗頭水等可以使用酒店提供的又或者到鄰近藥方便利店購買。筆者每次都會自己帶備毛巾,因為聽說過不少傳聞,不過只會選擇攜帶輕便納米布或者快乾,專門為旅遊使用的毛巾。

其次就是選擇一雙舒適的鞋,避免攜帶更多,因為鞋尤其是波鞋可以佔位很多,而且旅遊還不是走天橋秀,挑選一雙百搭時尚的白球鞋已經非常足夠。另外還會在出發之前買入即用即棄內褲,這樣既衛生而且有可以減少回程時的負擔。還有我還會帶備幾個不需要利用吸塵機都可以用得到的輕便真空包裝膠袋來放新買或者需要洗的衣物,這樣就可以在回程時為行李箱騰出更多空間。
