Travel like a minimalist with these easy tips

A minimalist approach is also an empowering way to travel and see the world on a budget or a long trip.

Traveling minimally can help you get cheaper fares, more comfortable on the road, waste less time, have a lower risk of theft and blend in better with local cultures.

It’s also an empowering way to travel and see the world on a budget or a long trip. You too can adopt a minimalist attitude while sightseeing in new places.

Here are tips for packing and travelling like a minimalist:

1. Carry only essential clothes

Your fashion mindset needs to shift a bit to embrace minimalist travel. Instead of focusing your packing list on the outfits you might want, focus it on the items you’ll definitely need.

Jean trousers could be worn for three days and also, try rolling your clothes tightly to conserve space in your bag and prevent some avoidable wrinkles.

2. Focus on important toiletries only

Minimalist travel is all about focusing on the basics: toothbrush, toothpaste, soap, shampoo, deodorant, and lotion.

You can pick up other toiletries, such as your rejuvenating elixir during your trip.

3. Pack only comfortable and versatile shoes

Chances are that you’ll be walking more than usual when you travel, so a comfortable pair of shoes is essential. Invest in a versatile pair of comfy shoes that aren’t overly sporty or brightly coloured so that you can wear them with anything and not feel out of place.

4. Go for an e-reader

To minimize your travel even further, download a reading app and books on your smartphone to minimize the number of devices you bring along.

Instead of bringing along heavy books, consider opting for an eReader or tablet so all of your reading material is in one place.

5. Embrace your natural self

Unless you’re travelling for a special occasion, minimalist travel embraces natural hair and skin. Leave the hair dryer, straightener, curling iron, face palette, makeup spray at home to save space and weight in your bag.
