    21 lbs, that is 9.3 kg. That is more than you are allowed for a carry on !!! Max is 7 kg.

    Ah…my favourite subject..travelling! I have already mastered the art of packing light, mainly due to the exorbitant additional charges! It can be done, people! Different airlines have different weight allowances for carryon, so make sure you check first.

    I will definately be doing this for our next trip. I thought rolling your clothes was the best way but I am now converted.

    Yes, I can see it would work for some people but not for me. I could not stand having to take all that apart every time I wanted something and you dont always want to hang everything up if you are on the move every day or so. Rolling is fine with me and I can see at an instant on most occasions what I want out of my case. I find when I travel that I pack as much of the non crush clothes as I can in my carry on bag. I can easly roll up about 10 tops that way in my carry on bag as well as my underwear and a nightie. I pack my slacks, shoes and other items in my other suitcase which goes through as checked baggage. I could not be bothered struggling with any more than a carry on bag and a small handbag.

    I’m 66 now I wonder if I’ll reach the age 80 and above… but anyway I’ll dread the day if that will happen to me… maybe I should keep working till my day comes with my boots on. I guess !
