We decided to head to one of the most exciting, cosmopolitan city, for our last vacation. Yes, it is none other than Copenhagen! It is one of the most beautiful cities in Scandinavia, which drew us greatly. Unlike few years back, Copenhagen has undergone a complete overhaul, which has made it more modern and exciting. Cafeterias, restaurants, night life and just about everything in here, has changed.
The entire city is full of life, though it has not lost the sheen of historic centers. The old cobbled squares, canals and copper spires still remain. Though locals understood the greatness of this city only recently, people from other places were quick to head here. I must say, this is not like another regular holiday spot, that’s full of fun aimed at tourists. In other words, it is Eco-friendly, safe and well-connected. Though I am not a native, nor do I know the local language, I was able to get around and speak with people, since most of them speak English very well.
Since it is close to Olympics and we’d just hosted the Queen’s Jubilee, I thought flaunting something patriotic that mixes with the environment would be nice. So, I chose the SUITSUIT Carry-On Trolley Case. It looks trendy and patriotic with the flag imprint, besides being durable, wheeled, light weight and sturdy. Above all, it perfectly fits in the aircraft luggage cabins.
Being able to move around quickly and comfortably is important and this trolley case, makes it easy. It comes with safety locks and additional handles, so it’s easier to maneuver this. With the two year guarantee, there’s nothing more I had to ask for! I grabbed one for myself and received many an admiring glance and a smile after looking at this trendy trolley. I was happy that the holiday went as planned and Copenhagen didn’t disappointed. I love historical and cultural places and don’t really get on in the hyper environments of some other European cities like London, or Paris. I feel like I’ll choke, or suffer a nervous breakdown with all that speed (no not Amsterdam…).
If you are looking at an affordable destination, Copenhagen should be on your list of choices. If you are going on a relaxed vacation trip, to a place that’s worth your while and time, looking at a place that’s not too expensive, Copenhagen is the most happening and exciting place to be! Though it’s not a cheap destination, it is not costly like Paris, or New York!
With the advent of budget airlines it is becoming cheaper and cheaper travelling abroad. For this reason it is becoming an increasingly common experience for your company to suggest that you travel abroad for business purposes.
If you are travelling on a business trip why do you really need to take too many things? Ireland is just a short hop away and therefore you wouldn’t really be spending too much time over there. For that reason many people are reluctant to give money to budget airlines for the privilege of putting their bags in the hold. There is a solution for this problem however and that is the Jansport Driver 8 Carry-On Trolley Case. This particular case is ideal for a business trip to Ireland.
One of the best benefits of this bag is that you can carry it in numerous ways. You can either wear it on your back or as a standard trolley. If you do decide to use it in its trolley form the wheels are stop quality, which means they won’t jump which will eventually tear the material on the bottom, a common problem with cheaper carry-on cases.
This bag is designed especially for laptops, although I honestly see no reason why it cannot be used to house other things if you do decide to take something else instead.
In addition to the main compartment there a number of others which will enable you to take important business documents or computer accessories on your trip. These compartments also allow you to use the bag as a rucksack if you want to travel around Ireland on one of your days off, assuming you have a kind boss like I do.
The bag is built to conform to airline ‘hand luggage’ standards which mean you will be able to bring it on board during your flight, saving those extortionate baggage charges if you took something larger. The weight is also a lot loss than equivalent laptop bags at only 2.5 Kg which leaves you a lot of weight left to still meet the airlines baggage charges. This means you can hop straight off the aircraft straight to your connecting transport, no need to wait around for that slow conveyer belt.
The bag is padded which helps to protect your laptop even during the bumpier trips. A common problem amongst business users is storing their computer in an unprotected bag which ends up causing severe aesthetic damage to their laptop.
With this bag you aren’t limited to a bog-standard black colour. For the younger traveller there are an additional ten designs on offer, none of them compromising on all the fantastic features that the standard bag can offer. One of the most popular colours for younger business travellers to Ireland is the Navy colour with a plaid trim. It does look fantastic.
If you are heading for a business trip to Ireland or another location in the near future then I really do suggest you take a look at the Jansport Driver 8 Carry-On Trolley Case. This beautiful looking and well-built case includes all the features designed to make your business trip hassle free.
The Maldives seems to be one of the ‘hippest’ places for families to take their holidays nowadays. The Maldives are a collection of different islands, which of course means that many people are heading here as something a bit ‘different’ the normal Spain and Portugal holidays. Of course, as you are going somewhere different then you want a luggage set with a bit of a kick, the Sunset Luggage Set is something that really does provide that extra bit of oomph that will take that holiday to new levels, you really will be surprised at how much of a benefit it will have on your holiday. Let me explain why.
At the moment the Sunset Luggage Set is incredibly cheap. You are provided with a number of sizes in the set which means that you can quite easily pack everything needed for a small family holiday of two weeks into these bags. Whilst they do have a design on the front, which is fantastic if I do say so myself, the design is not too ‘full on’ which means everybody in your family will be happy to drag the suitcases around the airports and on the way to the hotel. You get three cases in this set; 22”, 26 and 30” which as I said before is absolutely perfect for a small family.
You may think that you are getting low quality for such a cheap price, but you really aren’t. Each bag has a polycarbonate moulded shell which means that it is able to withstand the shocks that the bags often go through when they are in in an aircraft’s hold. You also have wheels that glide absolutely perfectly over most surfaces. I have had cheap bags in the past with pretty poor wheels, those bags ended up becoming destroyed rather quickly, I am happy to say that you won’t have the same problem with this type of bag.
Now imagine this, you are on a holiday. What is the part that you dread most after you land? It’s the bag collection of course. When you land in the Maldives the bags will be going around the conveyer belt, and normally you will be waiting and waiting for your bags to appear, the problem is that everybody’s bags look the same, dull blacks and on occasion you may see a bit of red. The fantastic design on this Sunset Luggage Set by Skyflite is incredibly unique, which means that you will be able to pick up your bags as quickly as possible and starting heading towards those beaches a few minutes faster!
On top of all of that these bags are wheeled, which means that you don’t have to fight for a trolley at the airport, you can just wheel them out of there. Hop on that bus and continue to whatever hotel you are heading to in the Maldives as quickly as possible.
If you are looking to go on a family trip to the Maldives then you can do no better than the Sunset Luggage Set, it is the perfect size, cheap and of course has a funky design on the front which literally oozes cool. Get your holiday off to the perfect start and purchase this today!
I must admit, I literally well up with tears whenever I see a child being told that pretty soon they will be heading to Disneyland for a fun packed adventure. They will be getting to see the ‘stars’ that they grew up with, Micky Mouse, Cinderella and of course the Toy Story characters. On top of all of this there are some pretty fantastic rides spread between the two theme parks. Of course, that all happens when you get there. The first thing that you need to do is plan the luggage options that you are going to take, yes it will be boring to pack, but you can inject a bit of fun into it by choosing the right luggage set. Let me talk you through a favourite of mind that I couldn’t be without when I headed to Disneyland recently on a family trip.
This is the Skyflite London Encore Luggage Set. It is incredibly low priced at the moment, and of a fantastic quality (I will cover that in a minute). This set has three different sized suitcases in it which makes it perfect for a small sized family. One of my favourite things about these suitcases is that they are large enough to have a great deal of space left over after you have packed for your trip to Disney. You honestly will need that extra space, after all, you will be buying a lot of souvenirs once you get into the Theme Park and these suitcases will provide you with what you need to get home.
No matter how you travel to Paris, whether is by driving, flying or channel tunnel there is a good chance that your children will be tired by the time you get there, you most likely will as well. Luckily the hotels are within easy reach of the train station, but you still have to get your bags there. The wheels will come in handy as it means you don’t have to exert any more effort than you need to in order to get to the hotels.
You may think that because these bags are low priced that they are of a poor quality, you couldn’t be any further from the truth. These bags have a good quality ABS shell which means that whatever is inside will not be getting damaged like in more traditional suitcases. This is great as there are some pretty fantastic pieces of china that are available inside of the Theme Parks.
Of course, once the holiday is over you will have three suitcases. The benefit of these suitcases is that they are able to nestle together with each other quite easily, thereby saving as much space as possible whilst they are in storage.
A family trip to Disneyland Paris will be one of the highlights of your life. The problem is that the costs of travelling are incredibly high, and therefore you will want an affordable luggage set that is also of great quality. I feel that the Skyflite London Encore Luggage Set provides you with everything that you want.
Every day business is becoming more and more global. There are many companies in the United Kingdom that now require their employees to head to Germany on business. One of the most vital things that the majority of us need to take on a business trip is a Laptop.
From previous experience I know how difficult it is to keep your laptop safe whilst on a flight, one time I arrived at my destination with a cracked laptop as it fell from an overhead locker when a fellow passenger pulled out their coat, this was a real pain. Never again would I take the risk of hoping my laptop arrives safely after a long flight. I discovered the Caribee VIP Wheeled Laptop Trolley Case and my travels have never been the same again.
As it is so simple to travel throughout Europe nowadays many business trips only last a couple of days at most. For this reason we only need a change of clothes as well as somewhere to store our business items. We don’t want to be forking out on additional money to give us the privilege of keeping a bag in the aircraft hold, as well as waiting around at the terminal for our luggage to appear.
As well as protecting your laptop this product will also keep a change of clothes safe.
This holdall is designed to safely house all laptops with a screen size of 15.4”, which is most of the business laptops out there on the market. To be sure however I suggest that you measure your laptop first to ensure that it will fit. The case is also made of a durable material which will help keep your laptop safe even during those bumpier landings into Germany.
This model also boasts a good quality zip that will have no chance of breaking through regular use, a common problem with most holdalls out there on the market. There are multiple storage compartments for every need whilst travelling to Germany. As you can guess you have the standard laptop compartment but after this there are so many different pouches for your various needs in order to have your important business documents in one easy to access space. You have an internal filing system to keep important documents as well as accessory pockets to hold any accessories that you made need for your laptop including a webcam or a Kensington lock.
One of the best features of this particular bag is the fact that it on a trolley. Ever notice how difficult it is to carry heavy bags around a new location, especially after a long trip? This bag allows you to conveniently wheel it along the floor, eliminating much of the stress of finding your hotel after landing in Germany. The wheels are free flowing which prevents the trolley jumping should you hit a ‘bump’, a common cause of damage to the bag.
The wheeled laptop carry case weighs just over 3.4kg and has cabin friendly dimensions making it suitable to be used as carryon baggage. Think how much budget carriers are charging nowadays for baggage, eliminate the need to pay this extra money and save some time at the airport after landing by investing in one of these bags.
If you are looking to take a business trip to Germany then take the Caribee VIP Wheeled Laptop Case. It is incredibly easy to use and will keep your laptop incredibly safe. Whether you are travelling to Berlin, Hamburg or Munich you can be 100% sure that your laptop remains safe throughout the entire journey.
Snowdonia is one of the most beautiful national parks in the United Kingdom. Nestled deep in North Wales it really is a sight to behold. There are fabulous mountain ranges for you to explore, this location is absolutely perfect for a climbing holiday. Whilst most people focus on the most popular mountain, Snowdon, you will also want to try and aim to complete the climb of some other mountains in the area including Y Garn and Moelwyn Mawr. These are of course rather spread out, I found a wheeled holdall enabled my trip between these locations to be far easier.
Due to this spreading out of ranges you will be up and travelling most of the time from base camp to base camp. Traditional suitcases are literally just a bag; there is no separating of your gear from standard clothing. This can make it a rather large hassle having to get out your walking or climbing gear each and every time, especially when it comes to having to repack it a few days later. I found a large compartmented wheeled holdall was best for my needs. The large space meant I could carry rather large bits of gear, which I certainly needed as I was engaging in Rock Climbing. It also meant that the gear was kept separate from my normal clothing, which gave me easy access to it. I used to loathe those times when I travelled with a standard suitcase and I had to move so much that it made the suitcase a mess, and of course it was a hassle to repack again.
As mentioned before, during my climbing adventure I was travelling from location to location to experience the best of what Snowdonia had to offer. A wheeled holdall made travelling to and from each location that much easier, it certainly needed a lot less energy than carrying around a 20-25 KG suitcase in my hands, especially after all that demanding climbing I had been doing. With a wheeled holdall you will forget that it is there!
I was able to fit all my climbing gear and standard clothing into my standard wheeled holdall. At times I did unpack my standard clothing and used the bag as a standard gear bag to take to locations. This gave me easy access to all the equipment I would need without running the risk of it becoming lost. The bag was also well made, which enabled it to easily put up with the rocky terrain you can expect in Snowdonia.
If you really want to have hassle free travel then the Wheeled Holdall is the best solution, especially if you are heading out on a climbing adventure. Aim to choose one which can be compartmented, this will enable you to have all the gear you require within easy access at all times. It also minimises the amount of unpacking that you will need to do. It also greatly decreases the amount of aggravation that you will experience when you travel from hotel to hotel. Nothing is worse than jumping on public transportation with a large bag that is incredibly difficult to control. One bag I do suggest that you look into is the Caribee Scarecrow DX 85. This is the bag I used and it served my needs very well due to it acting as a gear bag as well as holdall. It was incredibly light.
Many people head to Scotland for the fantastic walking opportunities, there are plenty of mountains for you to travel along, as well as beautiful scenery for you to gaze down upon. From the lush meadows to the beautiful lochs, the most popular of course being Loch Ness. This article is about how you can make your walking trip to Scotland that much easier if you took a wheeled holdall as opposed to a standard suitcase.
On a walking trip you will need a lot of different types of gear. You will need your walking clothes, which can involve big heavy boots and warm clothing, especially if you are travelling in Scotland where the weather can become notoriously cold. In addition to this you will need clothes for going out in the evening, perhaps to a lovely restaurant. I found my Caribee Holdall with its 70 Litre Capacity allowed me to easily fit all my required stuff inside one bag, whereas before I needed perhaps 2 in order to do this. The bag also enabled me to split it up a lot more easily so that I had easy access.
With the trip I had planned I wouldn’t be able to unpack in each and every hotel as it would be too time consuming.
A wheeled holdall makes transport a lot easier. Generally on a walking trip you will be going from hotel to hotel in order to get to the best walking spots. This is a lot of hassle each time if you have to lug around a huge bag that has no wheels, especially if you use Public Transport. My time in Scotland was a lot easier when I used a wheeled holdall.
The terrain of Scotland is incredibly rocky, so I really didn’t want to move my bag around whilst walking, it would have put too much strain on it.
The benefit of the Caribee Scarecrow 85 litre bag was that it acted as a gear bag as well, which enabled me to pick and choose the clothing and equipment I needed for that day. I didn’t have to unpack at all in order to find it, which of course as everybody knows, once you unpack it just isn’t go back in.
Once the time came to head to another walking location, all my gear was already packed up. I found it easy to navigate the crowds with a wheeled holdall, and it made it a great deal easier to board public transport to the next hotel as it took up a great deal less space than a traditional bag.
The bag that I recommend is the Caribee Scarecrow DX 85 Holdall. It is incredibly well-made with enough pockets to store everything that you will need for your trip to Scotland. It has a capacity of 100 Litres, which easily rivals other suitcases on the market. In addition to this, everything is held together with heavy duty zips that reduce the chance of breakage occurring if the suitcase is overloaded.
I really found that my trip was easier in Scotland, right from packing up my gear to actually travelling around to the various walking locations. I do suggest purchasing a wheeled travel bag for this purpose, you really will not regret it.
Packing for all kinds of travel can all be a little daunting. If you’re uncertain what kind of bag is best for the activities you’ll be doing, make a list of the essentials and supplies you’ll need for the duration of your trip and the day activities you have planned. There is a wide range of different bags and luggage to choose from, by planning ahead you’ll be best prepared for all eventualities on your travels.
Your list will help determine the size and functionality of the luggage you will need for your trip. There are all kinds of travellers, here are some helpful tips on bag features for the most common amongst us.
The Adventure Seeker
Exploring the great outdoors, such as hiking and camping most certainly calls for durable lightweight backpacks. These activities can be strenuous and physically demanding, so lightweight backpacks can help reduce a heavy load while providing easy access to equipment, food and water.
If you’re planning a day trip, the lightweight Caribee Trail Daypack is a very popular choice as it can carry up to 30L and has a super comfortable bio-form harness system. This system provides a utility hip belt and lumbar support making it incredibly comfortable to carry. It’s been designed for heavy duty and is hydration compatible with a concealable rain cover and cycling light loop.
For the ultra-light overnighter that is deemed equipped for comfort and adventure, consider the Jansport Talus Hiking Daypack. The padded straps and hipbelt are ventilated to keep you cool on your treks, while the compression straps keep the load from injuring your back. It has a Bungee compression system which enables you to stow a jacket or other goods externally so you can make the most of the main compartment.
If you’re seeking a performance alpine trekking rucksack, you should check out the Caribee Nevis. One of the lightest alpine backpacks on the market, it’s available in 40 & 65L and is a fully featured trekking pack made from nylon and Cordura materials. The XT harness system allows easy adjustment for the perfect fit while the internal contoured aluminium stays and back support provides ultimate comfort.
The Weekend Break
Those who enjoy regular weekend breaks need travel bags that are comfortable and versatile. There are a lot of styles and designs to choose from when packing for sightseeing on a city break or visiting a country retreat for the weekend. You should look for quality luggage that offers the right amount of storage space and won’t weigh you down.
Perhaps you’re flying away for a weekend break to a trendy city and want to stand out from the crowd? Consider treating yourself to a stylish carry-on piece of luggage by new brand SUITSUIT. These hard shell trolley cases fit in the aircraft cabin as hand luggage on all airlines including budget flights. With some really funky and colourful designs to choose from, you will be sure to stand out in style.
Sandstorm’s fantastic range of canvas and leather overnight bags, are perfect for stylish city breaks or weekends in the country. The bags are all beautifully hand crafted in tan, brown and black leather with matching water resistant cotton canvas giving them a timeless and long-lasting luxury quality.
When you’re sightseeing, it’s often easier to pack your essentials into a lightweight bag with lots of separate compartments for valuable items, such as cameras, money, travel guides and water. The heavy duty Ducti Musette Deployment bag has more than enough space to carry everything you need and is made for men and women. It’s also been recommended by the Independent for its stylish design and practical feature’s.
Got the travel bug or planning a trip of a lifetime? Investing in a high quality durable travel pack can make all the difference to your overall experience. Take into consideration your destinations and mode of transport. Your travel pack is likely to endure different climates, heavy handling, airports, trains and buses. It also needs to be the right size for your height and weight for ease of use and mobility.
Backpacks with wheels have many practical advantages. Here are a few things you might want to consider when deciding which travel pack to buy.
- Wheeled Backpacks have a very rigid back as the handles go the length of the backpack when pushed in, which enables the whole front of the backpack to be hinged on clips as with the Sky Master Series and Fast Track Series.
- The zips open all the way round like a suitcase. Those who have travelled with a top load only backpack will realise just how useful this feature is. There’s nothing worse than having to empty the entire contents of your pack to get at a piece of equipment you packed at the bottom of your top loader rucksack.
- The wheels also mean that transporting the backpack is a great deal easier than normal. It considerably reduces the strain on your upper body when you can simply wheel it around town! For those backpackers that like to go off the beaten track then the harness system is well padded and comfortable and gives good support.
The Caribee Fast Track Wheeled Rucksacks have been rigorously tested to provide the best all-in-one luggage solution. The high quality luggage is versatile, lightweight, spacious and designed with adventure in mind. Available in two sizes (75 & 85L), both with detachable day sacks, maximised packing space with internal toiletry pouch, adjustable harness system and a super lightweight aluminium trolley frame to have you speeding through the airport terminals.
Caribee Sky Master Series also gives you the choice to carry or wheel your luggage around the world. The 70 & 80L models are made from recycled polyester materials, light in weight and feature a bio-form concealable harness system. These stylish travel packs also feature a zip off detachable day pack that’s great for carry-on luggage or day trips once you reach your destination.
However, if you plan to do a lot of trekking where you will be carrying the pack most of the time then forget the wheeled backpacks and choose a good quality travel pack / rucksack instead.
For example the Caribee Akula is a great quality fully featured most versatile, travel pack with a detachable day pack for shorter trips. Available in both 65 and 75 litre sizes the Akula is fully adjustable so you can get the perfect fit.
Top of the range is the Grand Air travel pack. Available in two sizes the Grand Air is rugged and ready to roll with you when you’re going the distance.
Barbados is one of the smallest countries in the world. Despite this, every year millions of people flock to this destination to experience the fantastic tourist opportunities that are available right in the Lesser Antilles. I don’t know about you but packing has always been a problem for me, due to the design of some bags I struggle to fit everything possible within my suitcase. This eventually results in me being able to fit much less into my bag than I would normally be able to. Recently I acquired myself a brand new Centurion plus 68 Wheeled Travel Bag and the packing experience was made a lot easier.
The fun of course starts during the packing phase before heading on holiday. There are so many times I have literally had to sit on bag in order to fit in everything that I wanted. For a trip to Barbados I knew I would need a variety of types of clothing, ranging from Swim Wear to Evening Wear, which of course is rather difficult to pack up into one bag. The Centurion was easy to use, it is designed in a way that there are two separate compartments to load up. Therefore for a start you can focus on one and get that squeezed down. This truly was a delightful start to my vacation.
Fast forward a bit and we have just got off the plane. Landing is an incredibly stressful time, especially after we have gotten off the plane. There is that struggle to get your bag off the conveyer belt before lugging it through the airport where it is going to bang into numerous people, you just know it. With a wheeled travel bag you can’t take away the fact that you need to wait for your bag to come through. However after that it becomes a delight, just extend the handle of your bag and wheel it, no heavy bags to life and it’s a lot less stressful. Use this time to imagine all the wonderful things you will be doing on your Barbados trip. Before you know it you will have boarded your transport and be on the way to your hotel.
Once in your hotel the design of the bag enables you to not have to unpack in order to find the required clothing, provided that you have packed well at least. Everything should be neat inside that bag for you. The ease of this means that it will be easy to go from hotel to hotel if you want to experience different parts of Barbados, although of course it is such a small island this generally isn’t necessary.
After a vacation full of Scuba Diving, Night Clubbing and Segway Tours it will be time to head back to your own country. Pack up all your stuff easily within the Wheeled Travel Bag and it’s time to head back to the airport. Of course you won’t be that upset, you have the bag to keep you company!
Just one more point to make, I chose the Centurion Travel Bag due to it being so incredibly well made, sure there are other cheaper wheeled travel bags on the market, but unfortunately they are so badly made it is difficult to keep them in one piece after baggage handlers have done their worst.
Whilst you can easily go to Barbados with any travel bag, it is not a good move, especially after the fantastic experience that I had with the Centurion. It was just incredibly easy to pack all my clothes up in one bag, it then got easier when I had to walk the long distance from the airport to my transport and then transport to hotel. I really felt delighted having this sort of ease with my luggage whilst travelling; it really wasn’t something that I had experienced before. In conclusion my trip to Barbados with a wheeled travel bag was heaven, and I am pretty sure a good part of that was down to the bag that I had used.
