When we travel it is important to know what type of suitcase we should bring. Why? This is because when we travel we need to know we are going to be able to travel in comfort without having to drag heavy bags around. There are certain situations in which we can bring whatever suitcase we wish while packing it with whatever we would like, this though may not always be the case where backpacking may be involved.
Suitcase with Wheels
Are you going away for a few weeks? Then this bag should suit the purpose you require it for. When we go abroad for a sun filled holiday we won’t be carrying our bags with us. Although we are able to bring more belongings with us it is also important that we pack in order to avoid any extra baggage charges. A great way of avoiding excessive charges is pack what we need without packing heavy things. If we need to bring toiletries on holidays we always bring more than we actually need. A good tip to avoid this extra weight is to buy some of the toiletries that we need when we reach our destination.
To avoid the extra charges when we are going home it is important not to buy loads of gifts for loved ones. We often over indulge when on holidays and this is one of the areas that could cost us more than we think. It may be a wise decision to leave some space in our bag in order to be able to bring some presents home!
Thinking of going backpacking or traveling for a long period of time? If you answer is yes, then this is the best option for you. It is a tight squeeze to fit what we need into our bag but it is better in order to enjoy ourselves more than what we would if we brought a bag with wheels. You may be worried that you won’t be able to fit what you need into a backpack. Well, think again! If you were to bring a bag with wheels you would be losing out on space, take away the wheels and you have more space.
We have it in our minds that we are going to need loads of clothes with us when we actually don’t. We should be packing for the best possible situation not the worst possible situation. The system that is used for packing in these situations is to pack for a week and have an extra outfit while we are washing the others. Using this will mean we won’t run out of clothes. Bringing one extra pair of shoes including the ones we have on creates more space. If you require an outfit and shoes for a day/night out you should bring it because your everyday clothes won’t be suitable due to over wearing. Remember again that you will be able to purchase things when you reach your destination.
The above information should help you choose what type of bag you should be bringing for the traveling you will be doing. Remember one thing though, you don’t need as much as you think you do!
