About One Bag Travel

I started One Bag Travel after spending way to much time shopping for a new one bag. There are so many choices out there it's hard to compare each option. I thought it would be great to be able to see different carry on options, not by the bag itself, but by what was packed within the bag.

I first got into one bagging after an almost disasterous scramble to board a ferry to Split, Croatia.

One of my travel companinions brought along what seemed like their entire closet. Throughout the trip they struggled to go from location to location.

One day our group was supposed to board a ferry very early in the morning. The person with the closet in their suitcase slept late. Then had the arduous task of throwing their entire life back in their suitcase, roll that monstrocity down four blocks of cobble stone, and finally lug that thing around during the day of travel.

We almost missed the ferry and I thought to myself, why?

Why carry around all that gear? Was it just for another outfit for dinner or another pair of shoes?

These days, whether I'm in Thailand for a month or going to see my Dad on a quick trip I always bring just enough to ensure maximium agility and flexibility.

One Bag Travel is dedicated to showcasing single bag packing lists so people are inspired to reduce their packing lists and save a lot of time and energy while traveling.

I currently make negative dollars from this website but its a labor of love more than anything else.
