I observed that some people bring lot of stuffs when they are traveling. For me, it's very hustle to bring lot of equipments when we are traveling. It's nice that we will only just bring portable materials that can already accommodate our traveling. It's very enjoyable that there will be no things no mind it a vacations. We will only just bring a very portable bag with portable things inside.How about you?do you bring also lot of stuffs?

I bring way more than I really need. I have two boys eight and ten, and I bring double the amount of clothes for them. With them you never know what they will need. Then we have to bring enough toys to keep them amused. I spend two weeks prior to a trip, just trying to get everything together. We only travel by car, so I load it up.

It depends on where I'm going but as I nearly always bring my camera rucksack with me I always have luggage that I need to check-in when I'm flying. I've been getting better at packing thouhg, the last times I've traveled I've managed not to bring things that I don't need.

that true as well..you have to match the things that you carry with you with the place and to the occassion youre going..BUT!! forgetting to bring a camera with you is a big NO!! NO!! you have to always capture precious memories whenever you leave and brings it back with you when you come home..so that you could always remember and look back onto that day..happy mylotting!!

I have sleep apnea so when I travel I have to bring my c-pap machine. I try not to bring a lot of stuff if I have to carry it. When flying I pack the bare minimum and bring my camera and gameboy in my carry on. If I am driving or camping I tend to bring more with me. I will bring my cd player, laptop, camera, binoculars, drawing pad and pencils, and who knows what else. It depends on what I will be doing and how long I will be away. If I go to the casino for a couple of days..then all I bring is my money, clothes and cell phone....lol If I am going to the north woods for vacation then I bring it all...including the dogs.

hi-yee doin' mari61960?? yeah its true!! and youre right there..you should base the number of stuffs that you are going to bring with you to the type of occasion that youre going..if its not necessary to carry loads of things with you by just going out on a mall, then don't!! it will make your day out hassle free and much more enjoyable day not only for you but with your company..

I carry very litte especially if traveling by plane. I lost my luggage on my first trip back when I was nineteen on vacation to Puerto Rico. Since that time I only travel with one carry-on bag. I will travel with a bit more if traveling by car.

it also happened to me lelin1123 on my trip to vegas..i carried loads of stuff on my travel hoping that i could make use of it all in that tour..but surprisingly it was not..it has not even make me feel bad when i lost some of my stuffs.. it also gave me a hard time picking my luggage one by one on the airport and to carry it with me on my tour. and that is a lesson i had learned.

That has to depend how long I will be away. However, I would just bring the basic necessities like clothing, medicine, basic toiletries, my laptop, and probably a book or magazine. Other than that, I will buy whatever things that I may need when I am over there.

I dont bring a lot but only a few because it is a lot of hassle bringing all those stuff around you. If I try I just need to bring a backpack and another handbag and that's it. If its possible to wash clothes during the course of travel then I can do that.

yeah that is right p3ks626.. you dont have to bring a lot of stuffs with you when you go out so that it will be a hassle free gimmic for you and your companion..just bring on your handy bag and just try to bring smaller packs of tissues, balms and other stuffs like that which you needed the most to that particular type of day out..

I don't bring much stuff when I travel, only those items that I need like a few clothes, underwears etc. But I do bring along a mid size luggage to put in all the souvenirs. Cheers.

I would like to be as light as possible when I travel. The problem is with all the things I need like my laptop, DSLR camera, and the chargers and wires which come along with these electronics are just crippling me. Add my cellular cellular phone and charger I always end up carrying more than I should. I usually only brought a few clothes. Sometime I would just like to buy some shirt souvenirs on places I travel too. It is always good and advisable to travel with less to carry. That is what I am hoping to do on my next trips.

No, I don't really bring a lot of stuffs or luggages when I am out of country travelling around because the airport will charge a expensive handling fee for more than two luggages. So I just travel with one. I can put my sets of clothing into it with no problem.

I used to bring a lots of stuffs with me before. But now, I see to it that every time I travel I always bring a notebook and a pen and some extra money...If it's for a long vacation, 1 backpack could do it. But if it's not, I bring only the most important ones. I also believe that wherever we go, we must always expect the unexpected...and it's good to be ready when something goes wrong or something went past over your expectations.

I bring a lot of things with me when I travel, although I'm trying not to pack so many things. I always take a lot of clothes to wear and end up not wearing them at all. I also bring a lot of shoes and handbags. Then there's the technology. I'm trying to travel without my laptop but I still have to bring my iPod, camera and cell phone. I bring a lot of cosmetics everywhere too because you never know when you're going to need it, and medicine of course. I could never bring everything I need in one portable bag because there are just too many things.

I am an independent traveler these days. In the past I was a backpacker. I take my hand bag, my back pack and a day pack with me on my trips overseas. In the bottom of my backpack I have my clothing. In the middle of my backpack I have my toiletries, my travel towel and my snacks. In my day pack I have a book to read and a notebook plus pen. In my handbag I have my camera and memory cards. Over the years I have learned how to travel more lightly. It is little fun to have to carry really heavy luggage and struggle with it a lot of the time. When I took my toddler son to Latvia on a budget airline there was a limit of 15kg for both of us. I managed to do that but had to pay a bit more for the airline to carry my son's lightweight travel cot.

I love to bring lots of things when i travel especially when i was travelling with my babies... At first it wwont be easy cause i need lots of stuff to bring...bulky bags 1, 2,3...but it will pay off because you brought will you all you need for a happy and safety travelling...i dont need to worry where to get this and that because i forgot to bring mine...i have to stop for awhile to check if that store near the road have this and that...i wont get a nice travelling and vacation because of the hassle of not bringing everything...if i dont need those things that i broung then its good but ii i need it and i brought thats better... It is better to bring alots to be ready of anything than to bring light baggage and regret... ;-)

when traveling, i am exerting efforts to squeeze up my belongings in a very small bag so i can carry it conveniently. that's why i am wondering why there are people who loves to bring a lot of stuffs when they are traveling! its kinda waste of effort, and it is also a burden in comfortable traveling in other places especially if you are just alone. i guess the reason behind this is because they are afraid that there might be needing some item that they have not brought. well, makes sense.

When I am travelling I like to travel light. I only pack those things which are needed and are easy to carry. A portable, easy to move around bag is a must with me. With airports all around the world, you are bound to have a connecting flight somewhere in the middle where you will have walk around the huge airport to get to your next flight. Plus if I am travelling light, I able to enjoy my holiday and not worry about the bags. Most probably the country that you are going to has the basic stuff that you may need, so why carry it from home and add extra weight.
