For the life of me i cant find the article that originally sparked this change in the way i travel, it was an article around how someone just picked up and went traveling with little more than the clothes on their back, their traveling companion went with even fewer possessions, not to self, find the darn article and link it here

When i find it ill update as there is no way I’m going to be able to do the story justice. Anyway i shared this with my partner Jes with the preface of i love the idea of this but I’m not that crazy, why don’t we try it with just carry on? This was after our first real trip (2 months in western Europe backpacking) where when Jes go sick i ended up carrying her bag and mine and they were big enough that if you were under about 5”6 i wouldn’t be able to see you and i more then likely would have mowed you down trying to get to make a train.

Being the sort insert pejorative of choice here i am i went down he research hole and tried to work out how to do things better
