I thought about that actually and realized that the a6000 is smaller than the a77, which for most people is great for traveling and what not. However, my hands were trying to adjust to the smaller body size of the a77 (vs my old Canon FF) and so I thought if I go any smaller it will get even more uncomfortable.

I bought a NEX-3N recently for my girl and it was quite a struggle for me and my hands. After shooting with a SLR-sized body for years, it's hard to get accustomed to smaller cameras. However the kit lens that comes with it was amazing...

I dont really recommend getting the small camera just for travel (and especially if you dont travel often). One reason being that you have to invest more into lenses for the E mount. You might say getting an adapter for your A mount cameras, but won't that make your small camera bulkier, thus defeating your purpose of getting a easy-to-carry camera?

But one thing good about E-mount is that you can get adapters that fits your canon lenses (and auto-focuses!) called metabones i heard...
