How to Pack a Backpack for Carry-on Travel | What's in my Backpack

Hey Everyone! It’s Karin here from Arden Cove. In this video I share what I brought for a recent trip overseas. These are my best tips on how to pack light & efficiently. It’s great if you don’t want to bother with checking in luggage, and you’ll be hands free and free to roam on your adventure! 🙂 I recommend this for any minimalist/ light-traveler who wants to travel with just 1 backpack! The video is broken down into 3 parts:

4:05 – Downsizing toiletries
9:29 – Technology & miscellaneous to make your trip more comfortable

  2. Packing cubes! They really help keep things organized. It would be nice to have one for your clothes. Otherwise, your bag looks good! I would have liked a closer look at it – over to the website now…..
