Around the World With Carry-on Only

By James R Powell

Can a family of four (two adults, two kids) travel around the world with carry-on luggage only?

You bet.

In 2006 our family traveled from New Zealand to Athens, Rome, all around Italy, the med, southern and western France, Paris, the Caribbean (Disney Cruise), Florida (Disney World), LA (Disneyland) and Hawaii. For over 100 days. We had carry-on only, until Paris where there was a "liquid explosives" scare and we had to check one small bag with our toiletries, kids medicine an... >>> Read More...

I've traveled around the U.S. with just a carry-on, but never internationally.  I would think more people would be trying it, especially with some airlines charging $20 a bag now.

Scott, I wish that I could travel with only a small clutch purse in my hand. I hate walking around with a pocketbook slung over my shoulder so I only use a small hand-organizer.

Anyway, sure, a person can travel with a small piece of luggage. All they do is shop for what they need in the country they visit. When they're ready to return home, sell all the stuff they bought to a thrift shop or something.

Sometimes you want to take everything, but...

I just hate to travel with six pieces of luggage. I just hate luggage of any kind. Pocketbooks, bags...everything that I have to sling over my shoulder or weigh down my arms. Grrrrrrrr.

oooh no, that's not my case. I carry a lot of things with myself anytime. I am the best in solving the "what if" situations But on the other hand, I don't carry more than 2 bags. One at my back and one at my shoulder.
Back then when we took a charter flight to Roma, my friend didn't have anything in the luggage room of the plane, only in her hands. I had backpack (she had her cosmetics in it too). But she had no sleeping dress and it was too cold there in February and I lended her my trousers and sweater I had also.
I lended the trousers to my another friend at festival where was the storm and she had her only trousers wet. Oh my. That's not my case Embarrassed
