Minimalist Approach To Luggage


Ready to head off to Kennedy Airport for nine days in Europe. The more I travel, the more I am convinced I can make do with less stuff to carry around with me. So I am limiting myself to one backpack (my trusty HEAD-issued one) to hold most of my gear as well as a small shoulder bag I can use during the day.

Here is the gist of what I expect to get me through just over a week on the road: four T-shirts, two shorts, one pair of sneakers, four pair of socks, a track suit jacket in case it gets cool, a razor, a toothbrush, a comb, vitamins, a book I intend to finish, a universal plug converter, digital camera, iPad and its USB cord, MacBook Air and its power cord, a travel pouch with my passport and travel documents and Macbeth ticket, Bose nose-canceling headphones, EarThumps, iPhone, iPod Touch, and a few magazines. That's actually traveling light--though I admit I may be overdoing it on the tech front, with no fewer than four WiFi devices in tow! Probably should be able to ditch the laptop and iPod Touch, but whatever.
