MY TOP TRAVEL ITEMS
1 - travel clothing (lightweight,
quickdrying, wrinkle-resistant) - clothes make up the majority of the weight and bulk we pack. Hiking
clothes, lightweight apparel designed for the outdoors, can not only lighten your load considerably but wear
comfortably. Read: Travel & Hiking
Clothes | LONG SLEEVE SHIRTS for more information.
2 - eBooks (and an eBook
reader, like the Kindle): save lots of carry-on weight and space by carrying books, newspapers, and magazines
electronically. If you need to carry a computer anyway, you could temporarily download your reading material
onto your computer until you get an eBook reader.
The advantages of the Kindle, for example, include ease of reading compared to a computer
screen, longer battery life, and the convenience of it's smaller size and direct wireless downloading; you can
also hold it like a book which you can't do with a computer.
