How to Pack Light for Traveling

How to Pack Light for Traveling

Travel packing can be stressful : gives you the best advice to travel light with the smallest bagage possible with the 1-2-3-4-5-6 Rule, layers, and Ranger Rolling.

No one wants to carry a heavy bag. By bus, train or plane, the best advice to travel light is here.

1. The 1-2-3-4-5-6 Rule

What is that ? Let us explain. If you want to travel light, just take one hat, two pairs of shoes, three short or pants, four shirts and sweaters, five pairs of socks, six pairs of underwear. That’s it. With all that, you can travel easily for two weeks with a laundry or two on the way.

Of course, you need to adapt if you’re going to travel in the winter. Then, pack an additional coat (Water resistant is better)

2. Layers is better than big clothes

Every trekker knows this. It’s better to layer than just to have a big, heavy sweater. A short-sleeve shirt with a long-sleeve top will do the trick. On top of that, add a lightweight packable jacket, that is water resistant.

3. The bag is important

Choose the backpack that will suit you best. Dont take heavy suitcases with wheels. It will be a hassle in airport and takes a lot of space, plus you cant really fit more clothes.

4. Ranger Rolling !

Ranger Rolling, what is that ? This is you travel light, by… rolling your clothes. They take way less space than when you just fold them the “classic”. Believe a heavy traveler, it works !
