I travel more than the average person. I’m lucky to be able to do that. Travelling has sure changed for me though.

Like most people, I started travelling alone. It was easy. I took what I needed and I could travel light. Some years ago I got married. This added complexity. It added more luggage and another body that required restroom breaks, food and more sleep. I got used to that for a few years and then an additional traveller joined the group. This was by far the most disruptive change.

It required a full-size suitcase, a car seat, a stroller and a diaper bag. This on top of the carry-on I would normally carry with my camera gear and laptop. It was a major effort that left me near completely drenched in sweat just getting to the check-in counter, let alone rushing to a gate if we were late for a flight. We’ve missed a couple of flights in that family configuration. It got easier as we didn’t need the diaper bag anymore and the number of clothes we carried dropped as it was directly proportional to the amount of spit-up there was.

Early this year, a new addition arrived making us a family of 4. This added another car seat, the diaper bag returned, even more clothes got stuffed into the full-size luggage pushing the 50lb limit on every trip. We have learned to travel lighter. We bring washing detergent and try to do laundry while we are away rather than trying to pack enough clothes.
