The Best Luggage for Travel and Vacation
On the last flight I took, I found myself starting at the luggage carousel, waiting and waiting for my bags to magically appear in front of me. I was quite sleepy. (So sleepy, in fact, that I actually forgot WHERE I was coming from when an airport guard at a security check stopped me — thankfully I think she realized I was groggy and not a fugitive!)
As I stood there watching the baggage spin around I could not find my massive duffle bag. Every single other person from my flight picked up their bags and made their way to the exit, but I kept staring. Eventually, I gave up and asked at the desk if they could help me find my luggage — and he pointed to a pile beside me, that he had just removed, and there it was. Plain as day. But I suppose I’d been tired enough to miss the plain blue bag among the rest of the plain blue bags.
At that moment I realized that before the next time I got on a plane, I needed to find myself some luggage that STANDS OUT in the crowd. No more navy blue, blending into the background, folks. No more drifting off to sleep, lulled by the baggage carousel at midnight!
Today, as many folks are thinking about boarding plane and hopping in cars for springtime trips, I want to share some luggage finds that you’ll NEVER lose track of!
I have adored Herschel for years and have bought several backpacks which only didn’t last due to my own error. (If you must know, I accidentally sat one on fire, the other, my cat destroyed! Fluke!) I would purchase another Herschel in a heartbeat! Gorgeous bags, great quality! This cute duffel would make a great weekender.
If you’re on the hunt for some seriously sturdy luggage, try Samsonite. I love this particular luggage because it’s BRIGHT orange and unmistakable, but it comes in other colours as well if that’s not your style.
Another great company AND a great colour! I’m a sucker for that springtime green! You’d never miss this Osprey luggage at the airport! (Mom Spark editor Amy is currently enjoying a Disney cruise with off of her goods packed into Osprey luggage!)
Yes, another pick from Herschel because it’s AWESOME! (Cue LEGO Movie theme song!)
And lastly, Tumi is an investment, but this gorgeous bag will get you there and back in style.
Anyone else feeling that tug of insatiable wanderlust?? Me too. Let us know in the comments where you’ll be travelling to this year! And if you’ve got a luggage recommendation you LOVE, let us know!
