Top 10 Packing Tips- by Lyn Johnson

I have traveled extensively (to over 39 countries) and have learned how to pack and  how to travel! I have had to plan well so that I can be suitably dressed for business occasions as well as have clothes for leisure.  My most complicated packing assignment has been when I have visited a few countries and 2 hemispheres in one trip requiring clothing suitable for different locations and climates.  These challenges and the need to take just one modest sized case with me, has led to my PhD in Packing!  There are many methods, but I will share what works for me.
