Over the next few months, I will be traveling a lot. I’m already worrying that my luggage situation won’t hold up so I’m on the lookout for a new duffel bag, some bag accessories and possibly even a new suitcase to take with me. Here are the essential travel bags I usually take with me on a weekend trip:
For a weekend trip, I usually pack a duffel bag. However, the one I have used for years has a torn handle that I’ve patched up more than once. I’m looking for something with sturdy straps and fabric that won’t tear easily and that won’t show too much dirt. It will need to be big enough for several outfits, my cosmetic bags and a hair dryer.
For my toiletries, I usually pack a couple of cases: a smaller one for make-up and a larger one for everything else. When I fly, I always pack any liquids inside individual zip-lock bags (sometimes double) in case they leak or burst within the plane’s strong air pressure.
What kinds of bags do you travel with and why? I’d love to know! // susannah
