How Do You Pack for a Trip?

I’m a minimalist when it comes to packing. I prefer to pack one carry-on bag and one personal item—that’s it. Oh, and I don’t use a rolling suitcase. That seemed to horrify many of you when I shared it on Instagram—but what can I say? I prefer to lug my bag if at all possible. It’s called luggage, after all! Pictured in this post is my go-to duffel bag, a vintage one from Colefax & Fowler. It’s traveled the globe–literally–and you could not tell it’s forty years old!

That being said, I’m at the point in my life where a rolling suitcase makes more sense. I polled you on Instagram and here’s what some of you said…

Away! Perfect price point, great warranty and so far as held up really nicely. Get the carry on+!

Own Away, wish I owned Paravel

Paravel and Globe-Trotter!

Brics! Received as a gift. Lifetime luggage!

What?! Your suitcases don’t have wheels? Paravel and Away

I’ll let you know which one I pick! Thank you all so much for sharing your thoughts. If you have any other recommendations, please share in the comment section below.

  1. I love chatting luggage! I’ll throw in another vote for Away, but I’m also starting to travel with a new-to-me suitcase from Solgaard with a built-in closet system. So far, I’m impressed!
