You might all remember me talking about my backpack and packing tips for the USA last week, right?
Well, it looked a little bit like this:
And it looked a little bit like this when I had it on:
All in all, this came to around 10kg, which was within the carry-on restrictions of JetStar (my flight to Hawaii).
Now, I already mentioned that America is a shopping wonderland, so I did do my share and buy plenty of clothes and goodies!
Of course, I had to keep it within reason as I knew I was traveling to San Diego and then back to Hawaii, but here’s my new luggage upon leaving Peoria, Illinois!
You might notice that I expanded my Ebags bag to its full capacity, and also that I ditched the little daypack for a classy cabin bag with more room.
And, I should’ve had more, but a package I ordered while at home didn’t actually arrive in time — but that’s OK! This heavy bag killed my back!
Last year when Pat and I ventured to the States, we actually brought back an entirely new suitcase packed to the brim with cheap clothing and such. Ahhh… great times.
How much extra space do YOU keep when you travel to the USA?
