"Everything I own fits into a carry-on bag (I've been travelling full-time for over eight years), and Karen's tips for packing light are bang-on. Packing light is incredibly liberating - give it a try!"
Nora Dunn, The Professional Hobo
"I'm an overpacker. I always take at least three times more luggage than I need on a trip, and I always vow to never do it again. That's why, when Karen asked me to review Pack Light, I quickly agreed. I wanted to see how she manages on her extended travels. Her approach to packing involves common sense, and enough of the trademark Karen McCann humor to keep it interesting. I don't know if I'll ever have the courage to pack as lightly as she does, but I'm going to give it a whirl on my next trip."
Susanna Perkins, Future Expats Forum
"There such a thing as being a weekend warrior when it comes to packing, but Karen, you are a suitcase superhero!"
Cat Gaa, Sunshine & Siestas

Nancy Todd, The Spain Scoop
"Karen McCann has done it again, with another entertaining tome full of useful tips, gleaned from her years of travelling experiences with husband Rich. A genuinely seasoned intercontinental traveller, this expat expert recently survived a three-month trip with just one, yes one, small bag-on-wheels. To find out how she did it, rather than give away her secrets, I'll just recommend that you get the book yourself."
Fiona Flores Watson, Scribbler in Seville
“The questions we are most often asked about our travel lifestyle always focus on how we pack and how to pack more efficiently. Having read Karen’s book, I know that both novice and veteran travelers will find this guide most helpful. I picked up a number of useful tips, particularly those related to packing technology’s Three C’s: computers, chords and chargers. Karen has managed to pack a lot of good information into this small book!”
