Please throw away your giant suitcase
Travel Tip Numero Uno: Get rid of that huge suitcase. You know the one. It's too huge to fit down any airplane aisles. Toss it. Or use it to store Christmas stuff, I don't care just do NOT take it with you.
"But I'm going for two weeks, how will I fit everything??" You will. Trust me. You just need to pack better and possibly do laundry once.
Here's what will happen if you take your giant suitcase with you:
- You will likely have to pay extra baggage fees.
- You will not fit down any train aisles.
- You will not be able to store your luggage in a locker while exploring cities.
- You will have to heft it up and down stairs unless you are rich and can hire someone to do it for you.
- You will be sorry.
Less is more when gallivanting off around the world! So do yourself a favor and pack light.
