It's the final day of the Luggage-Free challenge, and I've hit Adelaide. This video highlights a common problem I've experienced: a lack of power outlets near the bed.


There are contexts where 4G speed is nice to have, and contexts where it is essential. The Luggage-Free experiment definitely falls into the latter camp.


It's hump day and I've travelled from Melbourne to Brisbane. Working on the road using only a phone means apps are vitally important. Here are the BlackBerry 10 ones I've found most helpful so far, and the handful that have been a hindrance.


Two days in, I haven't experienced any showstopping issues on the Luggage-Free journey, beyond a mild Wi-Fi shortage in Auckland. But equally I haven't yet developed a working rhythm that makes me think working solely on my phone  would be completely  sustainable in the long term.


The obvious  annoyance with going from Australia to New Zealand ? Leaving at lunch and arriving for a late dinner. But that and poor Wi-Fi aside, Day 1 of Luggage-Free is largely  going well.


Keeping luggage to a minimum is the goal of many business travellers, but how far can you take it? Can you work on the road for long periods without a computer and a spare pair of shoes? We're about to find out. Next week I'm taking on the Luggage-Free challenge, travelling to a new city in the region every day and trying to do my regular job as Lifehacker editor armed only with a BlackBerry Z10 and without any meaningful luggage.
