Hi all! First time poster, although I've loved reading this forum for quite a while! When I had this question, I knew exactly who to turn to!
I just booked a trip to Lake Atitlán, Guatemala to stay at a yoga center for a week (SO EXCITED!!). I've never flown with my mat before, so I'm wondering how easy it is to carry on a yoga mat. I've looked at the thinner travel mats that fold up, but I'd really prefer to have my mat since I'm going to be practicing twice a day (three with meditation). I'll have a backpack to carry on for my clothes, and I'm wondering if I could travel with this yoga bag as my personal item: http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B017O5Z328?psc=1&redirect=true&ref_=ox_sc_act_title_1&smid=ADVD72ZOFGYC8
For yogis that travel, think that will be OK as a personal item? Or do you suggest something else?
