Does Size Really Matter?

Absolutely! When it comes to luggage size is very important.

When deciding on the amount of luggage to bring, your destination is an important deciding factor. Will you take a plane? Will you be staying with friends or at a hotel? Will you be using a car or public transportation?

Let’s say the destination is a city in Europe and you plan to take advantage of the city’s subway system. This may involve hiking up steep stairwells. In this case, luggage more than 25 inches in diameter is not advisable. Taking your car down the coast to a hotel is another matter.

Baggage is baggage. This is true no matter what. The smart travelers will remember their baggage will always weigh them down. With too much luggage you stress more about the things you brought. You nearly always leave an item behind and live to regret it. Even if you only have to load the luggage in and out a car and it roll to the hotel lobby you risk hurting your back.

To pack better follow the experts’ rules. Decide what you plan to bring. Split into the ‘needed’, ‘may be needed’, and ‘not so needed’ piles. Get rid of the ‘not so needed’ pile and at least half the ‘may be needed’ pile.

The outfit you have on counts and if it’s winter layer on an extra outfit. And you can wash when you get there. where ever there is,

especially delicates in the bathroom sink.  And if you really have been living under a rock: if it doesn’t roll it does not go. Pack light!

    Your reminder about one’s baggage always weighing one down would seem to apply to both travel and life… : ) I shall remember the rule about tossing the Not So Needed Pile and half the May Need Pile– sounds right.

    And I must tell you I loved the “You can spend this Christmas passing the mashed potatoes to Aunt Doreen or exploring the Louvre. You decide.” line in your previous post. I think I’m picking up a hint there about which way to jump… : ) Nice work!
