Why I travel with only a carry-on

Yesterday I shared a video on how to pack a carry-on for two weeks, now I would like to share with you the reasons why I only travel with a carry-on

I have been packing a carry-on now for years, I do this is for several reasons.

When I arrive at my destination I am  going to be exhausted from the long flight, the last thing I want to do is wait for my suitcase at baggage.

I also do not want to be struggling with a big suitcase on the trains, or buses once I arrive, going up steps, platforms etc. and you can also be a target for a pickpocket-er.

If you’re a budget traveler like myself, you might have several stops a long the way, and sometimes you might  have only 40 minutes until your next flight, you will have to pick up your bags before going through passport control and you may miss your connecting flight. Its much easier if you have your suitcase with you.

I do not like the way airlines handle luggage, I have seem them in action and on YouTube. I had a suitcase broken before on a flight. Good luck on receiving any compensation for the damage if they destroy your luggage.
