Ten tips for saving time, money and your sanity during round-the-world adventures…
1. Pack light
The easiest way to pack light is to purchase a small backpack (duh). In 2003, Her hauled a 95-liter Eagle Creek bag around Europe for six weeks. In 2010, she shouldered a 65-liter Gregory bag on the four-night Inca Trail. Throughout this six-month trip, she carried a 55-liter Gregory Savant and admits even that was too big. She wishes she had been badass enough to simply strap on a 25-liter Jansport school backpack.
2. Always be alert

6. Be a shutterbug...
NOTE:Unfortunately, Flickr’s uploader can only handle 200 photos at a time, and it frequently crashes when your batch approaches the upper limits of that threshold. You can’t simply select 1,000 photos before you go to bed and upload them while you sleep.
8. Write postcards
