When packing consider how you’ll be traveling

Remember, you have to get there from here. If there’s one thing that can turn a pack rat into a minimalist, it’s a vacation spent lugging everything you’ve packed over long distances. Consider how you’re getting to your destination and how you’ll be getting around once you arrive. Packing light is less critical on trips when you’re driving with your family and staying in one place than when you’re flying on an airplane and moving around once you land.
