For the last 5 years, the only piece of luggage that I have checked at the airport is my bike. Otherwise, I am all carry on, all the time. I learned this from my sweet friend JoJo who used to travel for work on the regular. Mind you, she was travelling with luon, yet she told me she could make it two weeks with her wee rollie. #sageadvice I haven’t looked back since.
Here is what is packed in my personal bag:
+ laptop and chargers; moleskin and my favourite pen
+ an (empty) water bottle
+ a collection of my favorite Saje products — currently travelling with an immune roller, pain release + pepperming halo.
+ currency of where ever i’m landing #cashisking
And I won’t leave home without:
+ my running shoes – specifically my Saucony Kinvaras and a running outfit – be it indoors or outdoors, whenever i get anywhere, i wanna run!
+ bikini + flip flops — cause, i’m aloha-ready regardless of destination
+ usually my own shampoo and condition
In my bike bag, along with the obvious (my bike!), goes:
+ racing/ training nutrition
+ water bottles
+ bike shoes/ outfits
+ all things bike: spare tubes, tools, helmet, etc.
(*Note: this will serve me as a reminder of what to pack in future travels. Perhaps it will help you too.)
What I know for sure is that we do not need extra baggage, extra weight on this Journey. Travel light and fly fast, by land or air my friends! Because really really, having friends and family along for the adventure is all you need to pack! TeamClarker + TeamFrey are all together now…let the #ironmoon (really) begin. XO
