At first I’m a wee bit hesitant to bring such a huge, and somewhat heavy, bag for our trip to Bali. I usually carried my LongChamp (our USA vacation) or my AmeriBag (South Korea-Japan vacation). They are small enough to put inside our luggage if I bought new bag (which is more often than not!) and I have both of my hands free. I almost changed to mom’s Hermès Garden Party at last minute when I thought what the hell. So I packed inside my Beats headphones, iPad mini, iPod touch and the many chargers I need and I still managed to squished in my doll. And surprisingly, it’s not that heavy! The handle is hard though so if you shouldered it for a long time it will feel somewhat tiring.
The material is scratch free and easy to wipe so I won’t have to worry about water, spilled drinks, and sands since I carried it to the beach too! The dangling charm can be used as wallet chain too. Convenient for walking in crowded area. I would definitely carried it again to our future destination!
P.S. I won’t use it for our South Africa trip because I haven’t been in South Africa before and I didn’t want to risk being kidnapped for whatever reasons since I read some traveler tips that said not to look too conspicuous 😉
