    My recent trip to Bangalore was probably the third time that I’d ever traveled to a place with only a hand luggage. It was only a 3-day trip, but I always struggle to keep my things at a minimum while traveling.

    Your tip “dress for your itinerary” is what I definitely need to follow. Once, we flew from Boston for a weekend trip to Houston to meet some of my in-laws (this was the first time I traveled with only a hand luggage). Much to our surprise, we got invited to attend an engagement party and I had nothing to wear! We weren’t given the option to decline, and ended up borrowing a dress from my sister-in-law. Since then, I always pack something fancy.

    Thank you for this very useful post!

      Oh wow! That is a good tip, yup whenever I travel home or to my in-laws I always ask if there are any plans and even if not, I pack a fancy dress just in case. Phew! Good thing you sister-in-law had a dress available!
