Last time we had a weekend away I challenged myself to take as little as possible. Everything HAD to fit in the back pack and large tote pictured below. Our activities included sight seeing, dinner out and a football match.
The challenge for my dopp kit was made easier by knowing I would have body wash and shampoo waiting for me at the hotel.
I went ahead and gate checked the backpack so I had even less to fuss with while on the flight.
Edit: All the light packing techniques in the world won’t save you however if there happens to be an Anthropologie shop near your hotel. Heh. I had to buy a cheap duffel to check so I could get my new purchases home.
Next time though, I’ll do better! Maybe….
