On our Hack the World journey to Costa Rica earlier this month, Joel, Beth and I were all traveling from the East Coast– which had actually just gotten numerous inches of fresh, slushy snow– to Liberia, where daily temperatures hovered in the 90 s.
Nobody had a specifically brilliant hack, however everyone put at least some sort of strategy to work. Joel and I both used our bulky clothing on the airplane, altered in the airport, and stuffed our big winter coats into our travel suitcases. (I likewise changed out of leggings and boots and into shoes, which I ‘d tactically loaded on top in my luggage for easy gain access to.)
Beth was slightly more on top of it. “I had a puffy coat that folds up truly small,” she states. “When I got inside the Pittsburgh airport I stuffed that in the bottom of my suitcase. On the airplane I wore a tank top, hoodie, light-weight denims, and tennis shoes. As soon as I landed I entered into the bathroom and changed into shorts and sandals. I took my hoodie off and used my sun block.”
An essential extra information from Beth’s technique: “I had my shorts and shoes packed at the top of my luggage where they ‘d be simple to reach.”
Beyond owning (or particularly acquiring) a light-weight down coat– the better to stuff it into a small ball in your luggage– the secret here seems to be packing your change of clothing on top of everything else, so you can make the swap as flawlessly as possible when you get to your location. However definitely there are more smart methods to approach this problem?
