How Living Out of a Backpack Changed My Life

•••
It all started with a battered 35l backpack. Lugged through muddy fields at festivals, dumped in damp tents and stuffed to the brim with secret stashes of alcohol, my cheap £30 pack had been pushed to its limits for years. Before my first long-term adventure, I had deliberated about whether to ditch it and upgrade. However the sentimental memories associ[...]

Lessons I learnt from Losing my Luggage

•••
As much as traveling can be an incredible and rewarding experience, it can also be very unpredictable. For example, what would happen if you lost all your belongings that you had carried with you and were left with only the clothes you were wearing? I'll tell you what - that is exactly what happened to me at Gare du Nord in Paris. It had been the first ti[...]

This is the ultimate suitcase for notorious overpackers

•••
It's not often that we tell you about hot new releases in the suitcase department, but when something is truly innovative we feel you should know about it! Let me ask you this: if you were to design a suitcase, to what would you pay attention? I can only speak for myself, but I would want to create a piece that is light, but sturdy. Stylish but affordable[...]

The evolution of backpacking in heels

•••
I first started backpacking at age 22. That was also the first time that I went traveling with an actual backpack. I must say - I felt pretty cool. I was now "one of them". Giving in to peer pressure (that didn't actually exist, I just pretended it did) my travel wardrobe suddenly consisted of loose cotton wrap pants (Thai fisherman style) and white rip shir[...]

How to choose the right backpack

•••
A good backpack can make or break your trip - you will either start punching and kicking it every time you relieve your poor shoulders to set it down on the ground, or... well to be fair, I've always felt that way even with a good backpack, because I overpack and start attaching more and more things to the outside straps of my pack. But that's another story.[...]

How to smuggle some extra couple of kilos on board of Ryanair

•••
You are just on your way back from a shopping trip to London and you're decked in with new clothes. Or maybe you're traveling to visit old friends you want to treat to some lovely gifts. Or maybe you really just want to bring the big novel you've been reading but in all the above cases there is one problem: the Ryanair Handluggage allowance of a pityful 10kg[...]

The Suitcase Reinvented

•••
Suitcases are for travelling. Usually, they are. But sometimes they can be use  for cycling, sitting on, or even a decorative house bar, as you're about to see. Wandering around the web, looking for totally non useful but amazingly beautiful vintage suitcases (as they weigh tons and airlines seem to take the 20 kg policy quite seriously) I suddenly got a [...]

The suitcase scooter for the busy girl

•••
For months I have been searching, debating, considering and dismissing a ton of hand-luggage sized suitcases, always hoping, but never finding that something slightly special that could accompany me on my monthly short trips to various European cities. Or I should rephrase, I've never found anything special that did not come with a $900 price tag on it. I'm [...]
