Travel guru Rick Steves shares 10 tips to save you money, time, and stress when you’re on vacation

You may think it’s impossible to pack light. After all, you’re going to Europe for two weeks, and you’ll need plenty of changes of clothes. But there’s a difference between items you’ll need and items you’ll want.

“You’ll never meet a traveler who, after five trips, brags, ‘Every year, I pack heavier,'” Steves said. “You can’t travel heavy, happy, and cheap. Pick two.”

Steves said his company has taken tens of thousands of people of all ages and styles on tours through Europe, and they allow them to bring only one carry-on bag. That’s it.

“For many, this is a radical concept,” he said. “But they manage, and they’re glad they did.”

He added that after you enjoy that “sweet mobility and freedom,” you’ll never go any other way.
