Travel only with a cabin baggage

For my trip to San Francisco tried to meet one of my latest whims : take a plane without luggage in the hold. I find it cool, chic, relaxed, and I've always wanted to be this cool girl, Chic and relaxed (good and also because I have the phobia that my luggage lost, less immediately relaxed the chick…).

Yes but now, I made a big mistake : starting with only a backpack and a weekend bag. Weekend bag because I myself couldn't put it in the hold if necessary to return (too fragile, not secure…). So I had to restrict me on certain purchases of cosmetics Americans who have not crossed the security controls (100maxi ml) T_T

And, travel bag they say what one wants from a suitcase but it is faster the brothel. I had completed my bag to the millimeter and they emptied me it entirely under my eyes gawking at the baggage to a fucking bar SOAP that I had offered that was at the bottom of a Pocket. Of course they have left then figuring me for any re - store quickly done poorly done (with my plane in 20 min).

Cherry on the cake, I found myself with whatmille extra pounds on the shoulder to gallop in the airport on the return, I dreamt of small wheels. With my thick sweater that I had kept on me because it takes up too much space in the luggage, I was violet arrival at l ’ boarding. For the chic, the cool and it relaxed I was not still at the top.

Travel with only a cabin = F.A.I.L of fire

It was a good lesson for Sophie, now she will never travel with a travel bag and a backpack.

This mishap has taught me one thing : starting with only a cabin baggage that is, letting the opportunity to put it in the hold back is better, have a perfect suitcase cabin is perfection.

Now so I a small suitcase Delsey cabin *. in a very pretty blue which goes wonderfully with my small yellow backpack that I hang around with me.

It is solid and above all it has a secure lock : This code lock for which the airport have a key in case of suspicion on your luggage (language airport : a suspicious bag that does not open = baggage that it explodes)

Why it is important to close his baggage if you put it in the hold ? This is a great traveler who one day told me ca, When baggage is lost they are often put all together in large rooms and there are people who search and Yes. If your baggage is not inviolable but sufficiently dissuasive.

One day I'll tell you how I finally learned to optimize my suitcase and I will share with you my passion for perfect ^^ travel kits

    I laughed good morning imagining you violet boarding xD
    I love it when you do we share this kind of anecdote. For my part I flew twice in my life, and did not have difficulties at the airport, but your future article on optimization of a suitcase interests me… Even if it is to take the car up to Normandy!
    Beautiful day Eleanor :)

    I almost always go with only a cabin baggage. The main reason is that the luggage in the hold is paying in easyjet but it is true that I like cool and relaxed air that makes me! Especially since it starts with two children!! So there are three cabin baggage for 4 and you do it!
    My solution for the control of baggage it is everything which empties in a suitcase like that the 2 others it will not open!
    The last time we went as a family with our cabin suitcases it was for 1 week in Sardinia and there was lack of nothing!

    I enjoy practical articles like this, I confess that I would have trouble lugging me just with a suitcase in the cab because - when you travel is purchased and I surely its not got in the small girl in the cabin :'(

    This is what we have to go to New York last fall. It was great practice, except the convocations at the counter of the airline to go and return… eh yes, a transatlantic without luggage hold, It is fishy it seems ! :-)

    The loss of my luggage or theft of business,c ' is my obsession when I fly and I am obliged to put my luggage in the hold.
    I remember, When it was in the US with my parents, I had ten years and back I had put on me that I had bought during the stay ! I had I don't know how many layers on me, I would die of heat and my backpack was so heavy… but I was too afraid that stolen me / lost my precious new purchases :-)
    I pretty well master cabin luggage, Since I fly regularly to go to visit my parents in Nice (Lyon/Nice or Paris/Nice, much cheaper and faster by plane and train). The difficulty arises for the Christmas period ! A real Tetris :-)
    And when I am forced to put luggage in the hold, I have a small padlock, who should not be useful but which reassures me :-)

  9. 17 May 2016 at 10:43

    I'm afraid… I'm leaving without luggage, who say better ? ^^
    I'll just buy a suitcase of death who kills tomorrow ;-)

    Your article literally made me explode with laughter… As I often do Brussels – Bordeaux, for the simple reason that my darling lives in Bordeaux & me in Valenciennes… saw the price of the luggage in the hold & the fact that I regularly takes flight, I have not always want to take a piquette by adding about € 60 for a hold baggage go + return… The first time I have doing this, I was leaving for 8 days… in winter… I just found myself in your situation. The suitcase full to overflowing, the bag in an impossible mess. The PC more who risked his life compressed in the Bazaar… And the inability to find my smartphone in this mess with good course, top e-ticket. I told myself : plus jamais…
    Now I'm systematically, unless I'm off for more than a week. I learned the tricks as & to measure , I even optimize my handbag to keep an organized bag … The key : a perfect cabin suitcase, organized & perseverance. When the toilet Kit perfect for travel, I am looking forward to your article … I ended up giving up & buy products that I left in the bathroom of Mr…

    Haha thanks for sharing this experience of FAIL at the airport ! I have not hurt under my belt also ;)

    but it is true and more on tailgates is a vertebra with a bag.
    However they do want to often that baggage in aircraft , non? I mean, they accept your backpack in addition to your bag ?
    Yes to the suitcase and Kit tips toilet optimized !

    I tend to focus on the backpack and the little suitcase and saw that my employer pay me the hold option, the return of my last trip, I could put it in the hold and with a tote bag report other stuff in the cabin with me. I also have a mini bag that folds out into grand purchased in the Viet Nam, It's perfect if you want to be bringing back memories ..
    I pity you ! Me at Oxford, last year, the same : the type has opened my suitcase because something weird .. It was a power strip … I was also pissed given the mess that he put !

    For the history of the luggage is opened if they lose, I am familiar with the subject. Ten years ago, We have lost one of my suitcases and I had the chance to go see the huge hangar (genus airbus hangar 380) at JFK in New York ! Thousands of suitcases, bags, lost cards… et's, in the Middle, a guy. ONLY.
    Oui, He opened the suitcases but only when they no longer have an identifier outside. Car, He explained to me, that happens more often, and strangely ON never speak (even on blogs) It is the label with your contact information and that of the airline with your destination are torn. This is the reason why your luggage gets lost. No mystery.
    Result : the airport has a suitcase, without a name, No destination .. So there, Yes type it opens (and there the past for code locks) and there he seeks .. and sometimes found the trace of a name that allows him to find the owner ! The type was very proud to show me only from a credit card receipt, He found the owner .. in Australia.
    So I LISTENED well to its Board : always paste inside your suitcase, your name and your contact information (not the house number, but your email/twitter/ton portable) so it can contact you quickly and if possible identify your suitcase outside twice.

    En France, the suitcases which are not their owners are emptied : camcorders or other valuables are offered for sale and the rest is given at the end of a year and a day. In the USA, they keep them apparently longer (I remember a carton filled with fluff).

    Well if, I almost bought this bag backpack last Thursday and I love your photos and your blog !

    • 17 May 2016 at 12:35

      Hey Hey yes I always put a paper with my name, my address and my laptop since I saw a report where they investigate to find the owner of a suitcase.

    Oh lala as I understand you !
    With a friend we are party to Paris last month and we had the option luggage hand. Except that the aircraft in Toulouse was small and we were made to put our bag in the suitcase. Big panic believing that it was not going to return. Finally Yes. It was stressed during the stay by saying that at the time, should not bring bulky things from Disneyland Paris. We therefore preferred the small memories and everything went. Arrivals at the airport, I have the emptying my suitcase because of a pine which rang then than go it no worries. Boarding ended in 5 minutes, I helped the vigil to open compartments and then I closed everything speed (and Bazaar) and we ran at full speed, because of course the gate stood at the bottom, otherwise c & rsquo; s not funny. We arrived in time (Violets also !) fortunately, but it has much freaked out ! Especially since it was learned upon entering the aircraft that could keep our handbag with us … Thanks for the info :’) A little disgusted, could bring things more “big”.. But OK, next year we will not make the same mistake !

    Travel with only with a cabin bag it has become a big fantasy for me. With a child ( and fortunately I do not have three !), highs in terms of weight and the number of suitcases; in general 3 20kg Maxi-valises, more stroller and bags cabin all of world ( = changing bag of Victor with all his toys overflowing everywhere ). More my gear photos. Pray always kinda weighing to do not explode the weight limit, but most can put, more on stuff ! It is far for me the time of “travel chic and lightweight”.. :)

    I share this obsession for light luggage, whether it's for a travel pro, a small weekend (people are often surprised by my little luggage, especially those who know me flirtatious) or to leave 3 weeks in Thailand (I had taken a big bag backpack which was just on the limit for the cabin).

    Of course, It does not always work when you leave long and far, and sometimes we share with my fiance : my suitcase (Orange iridescent, I've not yet seen similar) cab, hers (There many more clothing and casually, it makes a difference) in the hold, and return it in my suitcase to me that storing precious stuff like the costume that he has had to make to measure in Thailand. Exceptions in this genre, I realized that I do not like shopping in travel, en fait, so not too much problem to return.

    I also pretty much manage the toiletry (Personally I put the bottles in transparent, on the top and the cosmetics in a small cute Kit). Pour l’instant, the only thing that I still have a bit of trouble to adjust, It is the first aid kit and the things that are needed in large quantities such as sunscreen or the repellent, so I me offload loosely in the bag in the hold of my fiance for now. Du coup, because this I like to hear about my obsessions and because I think that it can still be improved, I want to read, your article on perfect kits !

    J&rsquo;admire!! I never get from light!! I'm mounted in Paris in November, and impossible to leave with a cabin suitcase!! Already I could not restrict me to only one pair of sneakers, fear of wet feet if it rained, fear of being cold… Suddenly I have too as usual! And then I always want to bring qq stuff, and in return I trailed a framework and a very pretty statue glass that I had wrapped the bubble ds without taping it because I knew it was going to be opened, and I wanted to be sure to take it with me and not hold (I have suddenly been see security before saving). I made the exception there are some nbrses years for Tunisia, but the Affairs of summer it's really easier, It takes up less space and with a tube of engineering case is ds bag! However return by plane with the pants that served you your camel ride the day before because it curdles and you have no choice, c’est … “fun”!

    Good idea, in contrast, je ne conseille pas la marque delsey pour les valises, j’ai eu un problème avec leur service après vente car le trolley s’était cassé et ils ont refusé de payer la réparation sur une grosse valise qui était pourtant encore sous garantie ! 😒

    Hello Eleonore, très intéressant article, as usual ( oui je te suis en sous marin depuis mon lointain chez moi). Je voyage toujours léger, et même avec 2 young children ( moins de 6 years old), une toute petite valise en cabine par personne. Pas de perte de temps, à peine descendue d’avion, on peut filer et passer les douanes sans attendre son bagage sur le tapis. Pour le retour, aucune frustration sur des achats, si j’ai acheté pas mal de choses, je prends une valise énorme qui va en soute, et puis j’en profite pour y laisser aussi tous les bagages que nous avions à aller. Quitte à devoir attendre sur le tapis notre grosse valise de souvenirs, autant ne pas se trimballer les autres petites. C’est aussi en testant, en faisant des “errors” que l’on apprend, on retient mieuxla leçonet puis on se prépare mieux pour le prochain départ ;)

    I dunno why but I'm friaaaande of luggage tips ! This is my little Granny pleasure.

    Depuis 2 years I do take pleeeeein of aircraft, especially last year, school trips (tropd'laballe universities abroad) and lovers who live far. And I've never taken luggage in the hold ! It is so much easier to point at the airport 30 minutes before boarding, not expect that his suitcase is balanced on the treadmill when you arrive at destination, of do not struggle in transport in common etc.

    And I'm quite happy with me ! From elsewhere for a wee - end or three four-day I'd find me a travel bag, because my suitcase is either so empty all walk in, is half filled with useless stuff, just because I had the place. Even for Christmas or the two summer months last year I am part with my little suitcase. However, I must confess I stings or buys Rab’ on site, but suddenly my lover takes back me some stuff left behind when it comes to see me. What is the cheat? I do not believe !

    “And it was a lesson for Sophie”, definitely my smart, These days you get me well laugh.
    I too dreamed at the time to be this beautiful linen sky blue DRESSED traveller, arriving fresh aircraft like a rose.
    Après 5 minutes from flax it is no longer possible, then after 12 Hours by plane…
    For the luggage, I think that your purchase will be well cushioned :-)

    Merveilleuuuuux * _ *.
    I am filled with admiration for the reading of this post, I who am unable to leave two days in the countryside without 22 pounds of clothing and 3 swimwear (What ? It is not known). I can more of myself as soon as I start doing a suitcase, with my “Oh but I take it, it can be used”.

    This is for when this little note on how to optimize his suitcase ?
    Pitié, tell me “soon” Since I am leaving three weeks on a road trip in the USA in August, I see the hell out of here.

    I look forward this article on storage of the cabin suitcase :D
    I am quite a small weekend in Europe and the cabin suitcase is still the best solution but I'm not yet a pro of optimization !

    Ahh l’angoisse de perdre sa valiseQuand on a déménagé aux USA, mon amoureux et moi avions chacun une grosse valise et une petite format cabine (well OK, j’ai un peu squatté dans les siennes ;-)) mais du coup je tenais VRAIMENT à tout ce que contenait ces valises, j’avais tellement la trouille de ne pas les retrouver en arrivant ! Heureusement tout s’est bien passé :-)

    Je me sens tout de suite concernée 😂

  34. 18 May 2016 at 13:51

    Je vais me faire l’avocat du diable ^^.
    Au vu des nombreux commentaires privilégiant les valises cabine je comprends tout à coup pourquoi, When I get to my seat on the plane and want to cram my backpack, one of my guy, our coats and my camera bag (only two c * ns to put their suitcases in the hold visibly :-) ), Bah I have more room in the trunk over my head because there is a million of cabin suitcases that take tttoouuuuttteee place :-(, not drink !!

    Alors oui, super, We gain time on the descent, no need to go through the box “suitcases balanced on the carpet”, but that is what it is annoying having to find a tiny place in a chest opposite his place, to expect that once arrived people resume their cabin suitcases (and the transition, tear off half of your own bag that you'd managed miraculously to cram :-( ), take place in the aisles with their suitcases they do ride on your feet :-(.

    Bref, I totally understand the practical side of the thing and I am really tempted by this trick (Since the time that I travel, I see more and more people use. There is still 10 years old, There were much less). But we must also think of other travellers…and it is precisely with all the inconvenience I suffered in mind I don't think fall side dark force ;-).

    But I learn a lot on other tricks travel and why, merci ;-).

      Me when I have a little bag I put it under the seat in front of me and it is set

  35. 18 May 2016 at 19:58

    I fell for the backpack ! I spun this evening and I was shooting a larger size to slide my MB Air. Once there, I still preferred this version (two pockets before then that the largest have no exterior pocket). Bref, I hesitated on the colour (three), the saleswoman has even agreed to play the dummy !
    The bag was reported : for Tablet and I said to myself, tant pis, MB Air will go into the cabin suitcase and then surprise on returning : my Macbook Air also enters the bag !

    Thank you for giving me the idea to go for a walk at home !
    Your suitcase is superb, I've seen the asterix – I understand seeing the price ! (lucky !)

    Me I found the trick to my cabin suitcase: bags vacuum… a vacuum cleaner and the turn is played, I can even put my bulky neck pillow. The clothes are not wrinkled, it does it….

  37. 19 May 2016 at 11:08

    I also have a passion for the perfect toiletry :-)
    It would make me pleasure that you do an article on it !
    Now I do like you when I do not go too long : a backpack + a cabin with a padlock bag special Airport . But I always adds a big bag plastic kind bag Leclerc (but more pretty ^^) who use in-cab back if I need to put my suitcase in the hold ! It allowed me to reduce 3 the Morocco carpet !!!
