One Bag

As I'm sure you know, when Mr. Turtle travels, he likes to do so with nothing more than what's on his back. In addition to a shell, that's a backpack. Travelling is so much nicer with only a single, easy-to-carry bag. It seems obvious, but I never thought about it until I read One Bag. I didn't really believe it at first, but I was curious enough to try it on my last trip (our turtlemoon), and I wouldn't go back. So I encourage you to check out One Bag, and give it a try.

One key thing to keep in mind is that "carry-on size" is not the same everywhere. I had my stuff in a carry-on and my backpack for 2 weeks in Hong Kong.

On the return trip, they told me I would have to check my carry-on since it was too big. That would have happened had it been my only bag, so I was very happy to also have a backpack at that time.

And the need for a safe food supply means I'll probably continue to do a 2-bag approach like that, with the goal of keeping my backpack quite light.
