    Carry less, totally worth. Give preference to clothes that match well to avoid carrying excess clothing.
    It is better to wear two pairs of shoes that match with every clothes you will wear. Can you imagine how much space all those shoes would take away if only carry two pairs? This also happens with clothes that you can repeat, like sweaters or jackets. Save space to items you really need.

      Empacar maleta

    • Delicate garments: Place the difficult-to-wrinkle items on the bottom and put the delicate ones on top to prevent wrinkling.
    • Dirty clothes: Do not forget separate the clean clothes from the dirty ones. Avoid this by carrying a plastic bag, in where you can keep all those clothes.
    • Resealable bags: Save your similar items of smaller size in this type of bags, in this way it is much less likely to be lost in the depths of your suitcase.
    • Jacket at hand: If you are going to wear a jacket or a voluminous sweater, it is better that you wear it and not inside your suitcase. This way you will have more space and it will help you to cover yourself during the trip.
