Packing – the less you pack and smaller your suitcase, the easier it will be to get around. Here are some suitcase and packing tips:

  • Here’s my packing list. It can all go in a carry-on
  • See these packing apps, packing cubes and other carry-on tips
  • Pack a lightweight, foldable duffel if you anticipate some shopping


Flying – From the right suitcase to comfort during your flight, take these steps before departure:

  • My favorite suitcases – they’re lightweight and durable
  • Fodor’s has more luggage and carry-on ideas and reviews
  • What to take on the plane – see my packing list above
  • Tips to beat jet lag
This will be challenging with only 2-3 minutes to get on the train.
Train travel is efficient and fun – especially with a small bag!
