I normally travel with at least two big suitcases, sometimes three, and the kitchen sink.
So, when I was told that I could only take a small duffel bag and/or small rucksack for my trip to Sri Lanka, my heart sank.
Now, I wasn’t expecting to travel with my usual amount of luggage – but I had hoped to travel with more than just a couple of small bags. But, there is a reason for this luggage restriction. You see, I am travelling to Sri Lanka with a group of around 16 people – and we are going to be driving tuk-tuks around the country. And, as most of you probably know – tuk-tuks (also known as rickshaws) are small and don’t have the space that most of us are used to in normal cars.
So my two/three large suitcases and the kitchen sink have to stay behind – and I am embracing the challenge of packing light – or at least as light as I am prepared to go!
