People are often in awe when I tell them that I once traveled for 30 days with only a backpack. They are often the same people who bring a trolley for a weekend trip. The thing is, you don’t really need to bring fresh clothes for each day that you’re traveling. Rolf Potts was even able to travel around the world for six weeks without any baggage. If you’re like me, who don’t really mind wearing the same outfit during the same trip, traveling light is a breeze.
Washing board, check. Now if only I have someone to do the laundry…
The secret to doing this is quite simple: laundry. You don’t need to bring one set of outfit for each day you’re traveling (providing you’re traveling for more than a week), because you can have you clothes laundered. When I traveled for one month in Southeast Asia, I had my clothes washed at least twice. In between, I would wash one or two articles of clothing (the quick drying ones), as well as my underwear, in my room’s ensuite toilet. That’s why Muji’s Portable Washing Board caught my interest.
