|Look how much seat belt is left!|
Have you ever noticed how small hotel towels are? Nope, you probably haven't if you're not overweight! I used to pack my own towel on every trip I took. It didn't matter where the trip was to or how long I was going for, I had to make room to pack a towel. All because I couldn't fit in a normal size towel. It was basically like trying to dry off with a washcloth. It's so embarrassing to admit to you guys but it's the truth. I now have more room in my suitcase for clothing and shoes because my BYOT days are over!
I'd like to tell you about how I'm able to pack lighter and bring a smaller suitcase nowadays but that's 100 percent false. I convinced myself that on this last trip to NY I would be able to have a smaller bag because my clothes are so much smaller now. Ha! What a joke. I was still at max capacity with my 48 lb. bag. I guess it had nothing to do with the size of my clothes, I just over pack. I think it's hereditary. Listen, a girl has to have her essentials. I will NEVER be the girl who just travels with a carry-on bag. I can't even fit my hair products into a quart size bag let alone all the liquids I need for a trip. It takes a lot to look this good, okay?
I'm searching for my next getaway destination as I usually like to have something to look forward to. For now, I'll celebrate my travel victories and continue to discover why life as a lighter person is so much better.
