Swapping spontaneous backpacking trips to real journeys to live well

Airport Guide For Passengers Via Air Asia Leaving Manila Without Check in Baggage

Whew! Made it to Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. Here I am sipping a Starbucks coffee to keep me awake. I arrived around 6pm, it is currently 9pm and my connecting flight is 6am. That means  I still have six hours to kill time.  I am already tired and drowsy but as much as possible I don’t want to sleep in one of the chairs here inside the public lounge so I can guard my personal belongings. The private lounge here costs $20+ per hour so that is pretty expensive so I decided to skip it.  

On Packing Light Challenge: Fit My Stuff To A 7- Kg Check-In Bag For A 6 Days & 6 Nights Trip To Phnom Penh, Cambodia

Seven articles finished out of the ten commisioned for me to write in my pre - trip to Phnom Penh. This is so far the reason why I have not blogged for so long. But every day my heart is telling me to add content at least for a few paragraphs so here I  am squeezing a small time and as always impromptu typing my heart's thoughts out.  

The more I prepare for my trip there, the more that I see I have so much things I lack when it comes to travel essentials and accessories.  I have learned that Cambodia is a remote place although I am staying in the city's capital, it is not advisable to bring a luggage. The roads are bumpy and dusty so it it is a discomfort carrying a suitcase with stilettos. Of course I have long ditched high heels ever since I embraced the cheapest way of backpacking wherever that may be. This means I won't be able to use my bulky and original Samsonite luggage which was brought by my very dear friend from the US when she went there.  

I am torn between buying a small backpack bag or a travel duffel bag. Also I have decided to not to opt for check in baggage because I figured out I will be saving a total of $88 roundtrip  so that I have more money to spend on food, tours et cetera.  But removing this only entitles for a seven kilo weight so I have to be very careful of what to bring.
