Carry On Packing: The Free Skillshare Class

Carry on packing is a freakin’ skill.

And it’s taken me over ten years to get good at it. Luckily, you don’t have to waste a decade of expensive, painful, trial and error to become a carry on packing pro. Just enroll in our FREE Skillshare class:

Do You Pack Too Much?

Anyone who’s traveled for a few years knows that you don’t just wake up one day and travel the world like a ninja. Everyone packs too much their first few trips. It’s totally cool.

The travel learning curve is steep, and the road to packing glory is littered with awful decisions (I’m looking at you 6-pound headlamp, circa 1997).

Avoid Rookie Mistakes

We all have travel war stories from our “rookie year” — tales of behemoth 80L top-loading backpacks, €60 luggage ripoff fees, sore shoulders, frayed tempers, stupid, stupid, hiking boots, lost items, and luggage that you’d rather throw in a river than carry another step. It’s part of what makes you a “real” traveler.

But, thanks to the internet, and awesome peer-to-peer teaching communities like Skillshare, you can shorten that learning curve in time for your next week-long vacation. It’s crazy how much great information is out there, and I’m thrilled to contribute some of my hard-won carry on travel knowledge in this, short, 6-video class.
