In 2013, I took my first trip to Europe and it changed my life. I fell in love with travel of all forms and I haven’t stopped since. During my sedentary days, I spend a lot of time researching travel and hunting for my next great adventure. My favourite podcast has to be the https://indietravelpodcast.com/ .
From the indie travel podcast, I heard all of the benefits of travelling with a single bag and I have followed through ever since. Currently, I am using a Venturesafe 45L GII and I absolutely love it.
I can use my backpack to haul groceries, as a weekender and, of course, as the best travel pack money can buy. The security features alone are worth the money. You can’t put a price on piece of mind. Seriously, if you’re going to spend money on something, spend it on your mental well being.
You’ll end up washing clothes more often, but travelling with less is amazing. Less things to lose, less stuff to lug around a country, and you always have hands free. The money you save on checked bags will pay off your backpack in no time. Create a list of what you need, now look at that list again and be truthful, you probably don’t need all of it. I’ve travelled for 3 weeks with my bag, and managed easily. I’m leaving for a month at the end of the year, and have no doubt it will work just as well.
