I’m Caroline Pratt, author behind this blog, Just A Suitcase. I was born and raised in Illinois. I attended the U.S. Air Force Academy (graduated in 2012), spent 6 years in the active duty military, and now I am back living in Illinois with my wonderful husband! 

While I was in the military, I flew the KC-135 tanker aircraft. I was lucky enough to travel the world during my service, and I will admit….I got the travel bug!! So, I have decided to start sharing my travels with all of you!

I use my blog as a place to write about my travels and share some great tips I have learned along the way. I aim to inspire others to get out there and travel more…in an affordable way!! Whether I am gone for just the weekend or a three week trip, I ONLY travel with a CARRY ON suitcase.

Thank you for stopping by, your support means the world to me!
