Ok, amidst all of this Coronavirus talk, and self-quarantine measures, I’ve decided to switch my focus a bit, and tell you all about a recent lifestyle change I’ve made! At the start of this year, I decided that I wanted to practice a minimalist travel lifestyle. (I already own too much stuff to live a minimalist lifestyle at home, but I do practice a low waste lifestyle every day!) And let me tell you, I don’t know why I didn’t start sooner.
Minimalist travel is a form of traveling wherein the traveler only packs the material possessions that are absolutely necessary and nothing more.
Switching to a minimalist travel lifestyle was the best thing I’ve done since I first started traveling solo back in 2011. And I have no plans of turning back! My trip to Atlanta back in February was my first official attempt at switching to minimalism, and it was the beginning of the end of overpacking for me! (I legit cringe at the idea of packing large suitcases now.) Now I have to be honest, minimalist packing takes a lot of thought and outfit planning. But I promise you its all worth it.

Tell me something, are you a minimalist traveler? If not, would you consider switching?
