HLO Day 29: See Inside The Bag

HLO Day 29: See Inside The Bag

The Hand Luggage Only project has almost come to an end — so it’s as good a time as any to do a detailed photographic expose of what I’ve been carrying around in the infamous and now damaged bag.

I offered a detailed packing list right back at the beginning of this project, but a picture actually does a better job in some ways of showing how much you can fit in an airline-approved bag. First, for reference, here’s the bag on its own:

And here’s the bag with everything that it has to travel with when I move from one location to another:

HLO officially finishes up on Sunday when I fly to Melbourne (for other work and personal commitments), but I’ll offer a summary of what I’ve learned on Monday. Thanks to everyone who’s contributed throughout the journey — it’s been a blast, even when I’ve been on the receiving end of some fairly sharp commentary. (If you expose your life to the public, a thick skin is definitely a pre-requisite!)

Throughout May 2009, Lifehacker Australia editor Angus Kidman will be travelling throughout Australia with just one carry-on bag for the Hand Luggage Only project.
