The medium Saffiano tote is a great travel bag in my opinion. I originally agonised for a long time over which size to purchase – the small, medium or large – and ultimately chose this size for versatility and durability. It perfectly holds everything you see, including my DSLR camera and 35mm lens. The snap button sides makes it perfect for expanding when you need extra room. I could have fit in a few more items, like my iPad, but kept it light for fear of my arm dropping off.
When it comes to travel, I’m a minimalist on the outside, complete hoarder on the inside. I like to keep my handbag clutter free and easily accessible, then jam and cram everything else into my carry on. I find it’s the most effective way to go. This way I can whip out passports and tickets one-handed from my handbag, and direct children through security with my eyes closed (well, almost). But should the unthinkable happen, everything I need is in my carry on. Makeup, wet wipes, kids clothes, kitchen sink. It’s all there. Let us just pray we never have to open the carry on, for it may never close again. Amen.
I’d love to know, what do you carry with you? Are you a minimalist, or do you like carry everything?
