Bags can easily get damaged when you travel and that’s because the people who handle them don’t have time to treat your bag with extra care. They just try their best to load all the bags in the plane before it’s time for it to fly.

So, avoiding the damage is impossible unless you decide to travel with one carry on bag and keep it under your protection.

Packing light is the best way to avoid leaving stuff behind. Avoid packing things that you can find in your destination or even your hotel room, including, the hair dryer, shampoo, conditioner, and body lotion.

Also avoid packing a different pair of pants, hair accessories, or even cosmetics. Stick to the most important things and keep your outfit simple and cute. Remember, you are going for an adventure and not a fashion show!
