I knew packing just 1 carry-on bag for my entire 6 month trip was going to be a challenge. People do it all the time, but I definitely over-estimated in my head how much room I would actually have. I shared a video of everything I packed on my youtube channel as well!
I spent the past month packing, unpacking, and repacking my bag to figure our exactly what I NEEDED and not what I wanted to bring. I sacrificed a lot (my previous “over-packing” self is shocked) but I think I finally came up with the perfect carry-on bag!
So I am using the L.L.Bean Ridge Runner Rolling Duffle. I love it because not only is it a perfect international carry-on size, it is a rolling suitcase AND a bookbag.
I also am using ebags packing cubes to roll all of my clothes into. These are a LIFE SAVER for saving space.
So, for what I am actually packing:
- 7 T-shirts
- 3 Tank Tops
- 1 Athletic Tank
- 1 Cardigan
