Travel bag to pack light

Top 5 tips on how to pack light when traveling

I finally came to a realization that I have to pack light when traveling. My recent trip to Bulgaria made me carry a 21kg luggage filled with winter clothes to layer and some pieces of clothes for partying and fancy occasions. This also includes 2 pairs of footwear-- heels for fancy dates, parties and social gatherings and black winter boots for the thick snow. Well, of course, I had to do everything that I can to keep warm, right? But guess what?

WOW! shookt!

Well, I guess I can improve that later on.
