Drawing up an Itinerary

If you plan to set your foot outside and go where no man has ever gone before, you need to have a plan or a basic geographical route charted out which will decide your finances and essential commodities you need to carry. Is the place you are going to, completely devoid of human habitation? Will you be able to find a cheap hotel there? What facilities will they be able to provide? Will the bathroom have running hot water for bathing, washing or simply making beverages purposes? Or will it be a dense rainforest where your every step will be marked by dangerous wild beasts who will try to gorge on you and you will have a tough time trying to survive, let alone concentrate on the luxuries of living? All these and more should tell you what sort of things you need to carry along with you and what kind of a traveling bag you will need.

Some basic and infallible advices, which must be implemented in your process of traveling bag selection

1) The theme is to travel light. You may carry your world along with you but at the same time not incur bodily pain associated with tugging along large and heavy suitcases.

2) Do you really need to carry along 15 pairs of shoes and 30 dress gowns for a 3 days and 2 nights stay in Singapore? No matter how confused you might be, your wardrobe will have clothes and other accessories which reflect your fashion sensibilities to the tee. Carry these universal options along more than anything else, and see to it that your traveling has nice compartments and secret coves to accommodate all of it.

3) Invest in a collapsible and use and throw duffel bag. These help you to drop off luggage at various points in your travel across a country or a continent or a city, and at the same time not make you feel bogged down.

Your traveling must be light weight and have a number of transporting options like straps for slinging t across your shoulder like a back pack, or a wheels and a handle to tug it along like a trolley.
