I’ve decided to use my trip at the end of the week to San Francisco as an “extreme packing” experiment. Rather than taking my usual business travel luggage — a full-size frame backpack with clothes, plus a large briefcase with laptop — I’m trying to pare down into one medium-sized carry-on knapsack.
As such, I welcome any tips from seasoned travellers on how to discard all but the essentials. What can I leave behind?
Update: here my report on how things went.
