Packing Smart and Traveling Light

Packing Smart and Traveling Light

By Rick Steves Retrieved Jan. 20, 2018


The importance of packing light cannot be overemphasized, but, for your own good, I’ll try. You’ll never meet a traveler who, after five trips, brags: “Every year I pack heavier.” The measure of a good traveler is how light he or she travels. You can’t travel heavy, happy, and cheap. Pick two.

One Bag, That’s It

My self-imposed limit is 20 pounds in a 9" × 21" × 14" carry-on-size bag (it’ll fit in your airplane’s overhead bin, at least on your transatlantic flight — though many European airlines restrict hand luggage to even smaller weights and dimensions). At my company, we’ve taken tens of thousands of people of all ages and styles on tours through Europe. We allow only one carry-on bag. For many, this is a radical concept: 9" × 21" × 14"? That’s my cosmetics kit! But they manage, and they’re glad they did. After you enjoy that sweet mobility and freedom, you’ll never go any other way.

Sunday school at Grace Lutheran Church

Sunday school at Grace Lutheran Church. Our discussion is about our spiritual and vocational callings. The springboard for the discussion was 1 Samuel 3: 1-10. "Here I am , you called me." 14Jan2018

Sunday morning 9 am church service at Grace Lutheran

Sunday morning 9 am church service at Grace Lutheran Church. It's 14 degrees outside, but warm and affirming here at Grace. www.gracelc.org Today the council officers are being installed. Pastor Martha's message was about the lessons of 1 Samuel 3:1-10 and John 1:43-51... I liked the part when Nathaniel said, "Can anything good come out of Nazareth?"

It is a rainy day in historic downtown Westminster.


It is a rainy day in historic downtown Westminster. I am grabbing a bite to eat at Giulianova. Checking out the train and my display at Off Track Art, and enjoying the comings and goings, hustle and bustle of passers-by. Sat. 12Jan2018 

Doesn’t everyone have a reclining chair sitting on the back of the truck?


What? Doesn't everyone have a reclining chair sitting on the back of the truck? We disposed of our old recliner today and our household is sad. Please join in a moment of silence over the loss of our chair. We are taking it hard. 12Jan2018
