Carry On Bag Dimensions – All the Dimensions You Would Ever Need in 2019 to Ensure Your Carry On Fits for All Flights

Thinking of going for a carry-on only trip? Depending on where you’re coming from and where you’re going, your carry-on bag dimensions can vary. Let’s imagine that we’re traveling across the continent of our dreams, and you’ve booked a whole bunch of regional and budget airlines to get you from one location to the next. Trying to save some money, you try the carry-on only style, and pack your entire life into one tiny bag. Just as you’re about to board your flight though, you’re stopped by the flight attendants. They’re eyeing your bag and … oh no! Your bag is juuuuuust a little too large to go into the cabin, so they force you to check it in, and you’re stuck with a check baggage fee. This totally could have been avoided if some background work was done!

Have no fear, for we’ve created a list that takes away that leg work for you. This list is a work in progress! At the moment, you’ll find a list of carry-on restrictions and limitations for more than 40+ airlines servicing Africa. I’ll be making weekly updates over the course of the next several weeks to include more airlines as I find them.

Constipation During Travel – My Iceland Outhouse Experience and Why I Pack Laxatives When I Travel

Constipation Duing Travel - My Iceland Outhouse Experience and Why I Pack Laxatives When I Travel

Recently, I wrote a blog post about the essential medicine to carry when you travel, which of course, includes the topic for today – why you should be carrying laxatives when you travel. Constipation no joke. The gassy, bloated, stomach pain caused by the changes in your routine and added travel stress (like sleep disruption and dietary changes) can leave you blocked up. Nowadays, I reluctantly carry a pack of Miralax/Restorlax as part of my essential medicine kit when I travel abroad – a hard (pun intended!) lesson learned when I found myself sitting in an Icelandic outhouse, 8 days after I started my vacation – without stool softeners or laxatives (don’t worry the post doesn’t contain graphic medical details! It is just a story to stress why I need it in my pack now!).

Disclaimer: Today’s post talks about poop and my lack of success with it in Iceland. Basically every paragraph describes bowel movements. Skip if this is something you’re just really not interested in at all!
