Have just returned from 16 days in Vietnam, Laos, and Cambodia (see thus i have seen - Home - Ta*Prohm) with a carefully-packed Western Flyer and a Large Cafe Bag. The usual traveling configuration of the Large Cafe Bag is shown below:
"We leave on May 14th and come back on June 6th. Three weeks is not that long and i decided to pack less than what I packed last time."

Excerpt from One Woman’s Minimalist / Ultralight Packing List by Allison Levine: While I haven’t quite given up processed foods yet, I had to apply my new-found minimalism to travel. Suitcases are not my friend. I don’t have the apparent muscle strength required to carry them, and dragging anything with wheels up a flight of stairs is my idea of hell. On the other hand, backpacks can be painful too — especially when they’re not suited to your size, or over-packed. Sara and I took a backpack each to Comic-Con 2011. We wanted to be able to jump off the...
"I mentioned in an old thread of mine that I would post an updated packing list. It's amazing how much progess I've made in the last two years. I leave in a few hours for a 17 day trip, traveling all over the East Coast/Mid-Atlantic area of the US, selling merch for a band. I'm planning for very nice spring weather, 60s-70s, maybe some rain. But I work indoors mostly."

Posted by jmcrist in the TOM BIHN Forums. My Brain Bag was broken in on my last flight from Houston to New Delhi, with a layover in Frankfurt. I flew Lufthansa, and was a little nervous due to the stricter limits of European airlines. Needless to say from the pictures below... that didn't keep me from overpacking! That baby weighed 35.6 lbs - over half the weight of one piece of checked baggage - and the Lufthansa crew didn't bat an eye. Okay, now here's all the stuff I managed to fit in it: Macbook Pro 13" inside of a...
