carry on+tote for a month tripI know that I always carry a large and filled to the brim carry on bag. I’ve lost luggage so many times that I want a full change of clothing + all of the necessities that I’ll need during my vacation.  I know, I may be crazy but that is the way I’ve been packing for years.
