Trying to be stylish while living out of a suitcase 365/24/7 is challenging. If you're considering a work-from-anywhere, open-ended, long-term travel lifestyle, you need to determine your fashionista quotient — practical (like Jon) or stylish (like Karen). While preparing for our journey, Jon focused on packing lightweight, performance-based clothing that was easy to manage. Jon admits he'll never win any style awards, but he leads the league in comfortable clothing. Karen, on the other hand, struggles to maintain a vibrant yet simple style while constantly being tempted by fashions specific to the countries we visit. We limit ourselves to a 50-pound suitcase each (Karen has a carry-on, too, which is usually loaded with accessories and toiletries), so curating and maintaining a funky fresh wardrobe is an ongoing challenging (for Karen, not Jon). During this episode, we discuss how we've been able to manage our packing needs and how we address those needs while enjoying our travel lifestyle.
