A tiny bit of backpack downsizing

Downsizing in a backpack

When the roll in this big one fit into the small container, it was a backpacker’s Yes! moment.

As you quickly learn when you travel with just one bag — for any amount of time — every bit of space matters.

As I was packing to move from Costa Rica to Panama, I had one of those moments of celebration…
The celebration when you gain a bit of space, when you get to downsize even just a tad.

Most of you will laugh at this one.
I did.
But my finally! grin was ear to ear at the time.

The moment?
When I finished a pack of dental floss and was able to fit the floss from my bigger container into the smaller one.

I know you’ll wonder why I’d I brought two. It was because I had them when I left LA, each was partially used, and I was sure neither would last long. I am seriously amazed how long each lasted.
