By Sherry Ott / Ott’s World I’ve been on the road nine years to all continents and about 65 countries, and I normally shy away from giving people lots of advice about travel, as everyone’s tastes are different and I don’t profess to be an expert.
I have a few awesome packing hacks that I’ve been using for a few years now but a quick Google search proved that I wasn’t the only one to come up with these brilliant ideas. Packing is a challenge for most of us but there are lots of ways to minimize the stress and maximize the space you have in your suitcase.

By Leah Melby (Photo: BFA) It’s true: I was just away for a 10-day vacation and was totally fine with just a carry-on roller suitcase. Better than fine in fact—it might have been the vacation where I was happiest withwhat I packed . The heartaches of poorly planned suitcases are easy to avoid; as long as you give yourself some real talk when needed, you’ll find that you’re in and out of the airport without shelling out for an excess-baggage charge (and looking like your very best self on all the days in between). Tip #1: Be really tough on yourself when it comes to shoes.
Until recently, I was a grab-a-backpack-and-go kind of girl. I traveled to places like Iraq, Mali, and Afghanistan, where paved roads are an anomaly — not the norm. And anyone who has rolled a wheeled suitcase over potholed, muddy dirt roads knows better.

The airlines may be cracking down on carry-on bags, as Yahoo Travel reported earlier this week in a story on new baggage restrictions from Airfare Watchdog.

Spending extended periods abroad (London for three months, China for 6 months, and in France for 5 weeks) has taught me a little something about packing light. Here is what you need to do: Step 1: Plan Ahead Call your airline and find out how many bags you can take with you without getting charged ridiculous fees. Chances are, you will be allowed to check in one bag. ...
In honor of Dolly Parton's new album, Blue Smoke (out this week), Yahoo Travel catches up with the country queen to get the scoop on her new Tennessee hotel, the DreamMore Resort (open summer 2015) — and darn if she wasn’t kinder and sassier and full of more trademark giggle than you can imagine. She even gave us a peek inside her suitcase.
Wouldn’t it be great if you could travel bag-free? There would be no bag-check lines, no waiting for luggage, no lost luggage, and best of all, no restrictions. Well, it is entirely possible. And traveling with your beloved bicycle? That is possible, too. How? Ship it.
