About Katherine, @the5kilotraveller
Katherine is a 5 Kilo Traveller from New Zealand. She loves to travel, and her passion is teaching people to travel with less luggage (not necessarily 5 kilos or 11 pounds – just less), so people stop struggling with heavy bags.
“I initially travelled with a small bag as I was a solo female traveller and needed to feel safe and confident. Travelling with a small carry-on bag gave me this confidence and security. It also gave me the convenience of sightseeing and not having to lock my bag up somewhere or check-in early. My bag was able to be with me at all times, so I didn’t have to wait for it getting off planes or trains. I could get around very easily on local transport – in China, I got a ride on a scooter to my accommodation – try that with a suitcase!”
“Travelling light makes travel easy and liberating. I have fewer decisions to make. I don’t lose things. Packing and unpacking is easy.”
