Not only is this upcoming trip to Africa a journey that will break me out of my comfort zone in terms of traveling, but, it’s also breaking me out of my usual packing routine.
For years, I have traveled with my trusty black Delsey carry-on suitcase. It has made the journey with me to Bermuda, New Zealand, Fiji, Miami, The Bahamas, Thailand, Vietnam, and Aruba. It’s helped me pack for two different seasons on my trip to New Zealand and Fiji, been dumped into puddles that smell like fish in Vietnam, survived every mode of transportation imaginable, and overall, has never let me down in terms of packing everything I want into the smallest piece of luggage possible, even for trips lasting a little over three weeks. But, my beloved carry-on suitcase will not be making the trip with me to Africa.
