Travel Tip #1 - Pack Light

With airlines lowering baggage allowances it is more important than ever to pack light! When you depart home for a trip weigh your bag and leave 5 to 10 pounds (if possible) for souvenirs.

For trips 14 days and less I recommend packing for half of the total duration of your trip. If you have booked a 14 day vacation, pack for 7 days.

Think of taking a neutral pair of pants and/or shorts that will go with multiple tops; this works for day or night. Pack a small bottle of delicate detergent; this will allow you to wash items by hand in your bathroom sink while travelling and then hang the items to dry in your shower/bathtub. Use laundry facilities in your hotel or cruise ship to get a second use out of the clothing items you have taken.

These few tips will make your bag lighter for flying!
