I usually pack only the essentials but I do like to have lots too, incase I need them.

Well in recent years I've flown when going to fencing tournaments so I have to drag all my gear and uniforms for check-in. Other than that I usually just bring 2 carry ons; on trips that would be at most a week. I will be packing heavily when I fly to the Philippines though, gotta pack a month's worth of stuff :P plus gifts for my family.

I want to be a light packer, but it just never happens lol.

I always manage to go over the baggage allowance, so i get hit with fines and charges lol. My most impressive one was the last time i went to New York. Came back with twice what i went out with lol, i have a problem but then again its not my fault lol.

I can't seem to pack lightly enough. It's a real problem I have.

My sister is always telling me, "If you want to hike or backpack Europe or other countries, you're going to have to travel light." She lives a half hour away from me and sometimes I stay up to a week, but I'm no longer allowed to bring more than two bags, which sucks. I like having a variety of clothes, especially because in my mid to late teens I didn't have many clothes in my closet that fit me and we (my family) didn't have money to take me clothes shopping for school (especially grades 10-12), so I wore pretty much standard shirt and jeans.

Now, I bring my laptop bag and somehow manage to fit a pair of pants, two or three shirts, sleeping shorts and shirt, socks etc, facewash and all those essentials, protein bars and Gatorade packets, and of course my laptop, charger, and mouse. I take my purse with me everywhere I go, too. Laptop bag's gotta weigh at least 15 lbs. (6.8 kg) and I carry that in injured leg, back, and all.

-shrug- I'm not like my twin at all :tongue0020: .

My stuff brings be comfort. -_-

A BIG thanks to the beautiful BoMa, my big sister <3. I know I haven't been around much to talk, but you're more than amazing and I'm so happy to receive this graphic as a gift. Thanks for being so kind-hearted. ;)

"People are always blaming their circumstances for what they are. I don't believe in circumstance. The people who get on in the world are the people who get up and look for the circumstances they want, and if they can't find them, make them." -George Bernard Shaw, Irish playwright.

Uhm...I pack for 2 weeks when I'm going away for 2 days!! You never know when you might be going out for some dinner or have a party to attend. And you can NOT be seen in the same outfit twice. :unsure:
Well you can if you're like travelling with family :P

I'd say medium, I mean, I can get it in quite a small bag/suitcase...but still, it's always too much...even if I go away for only a few days I manage to bring so many things I know I don't really need xD.

I would say that I pack lightly. There was a time when I use to pack almost everything in my wardrobe, as well as books in case I'd get bored. But I quickly realised that I didn't like carrying around all that junk, so now I'm more strict and honest with myself about what I need to bring when I travel.

I travel heavily on a regular basis. In fact, I am getting ready to travel to Ohio next week, which is about a 14 hour drive from where I am stationed.

depends where i'm going, out of the country I pack lightly, so I can come back with loads of stuff. Traveling in the country=overloaded. Surfboards, fire poi, musical instruments, airbed, rain coat you name I have it.
