I’ve been taking every opportunity to travel that I can in the past few years. Nothing brings me as much joy, teaches me more or gets me excited about life as travelling does, but of course with all the fun adventures comes a whole set of potential stressors and setbacks too. While some can’t be avoided (flights delayed, bad weather grounding you, etc), one thing that’s totally in your control and that is well worth learning is how to pack like a boss.
