Less Luggage, More Travel: The Best Weekender Bag

Friday, November 17, 2017

One of the main ways I'm able to travel while maintaining a full-time job is through small trips to cities that don’t require much more than a long weekend. With this mentality, alongside my mom’s fifty-state plan, I’ve been able to explore some incredible destinations that were not necessarily high on my travel list. 

The most recent of these trips was to Santa Fe, where my mom and I discovered the hidden gem that is the Land of Enchantment (a.k.a. New Mexico). Between the colorful, traditional architecture to the sweeping desert scenery, it was an unexpectedly amazing destination for a brief getaway.

For these shorter trips, packing lightly is the one of the keys to avoiding extra stress when you have limited time. I’ve been through my fair share of travel bags, but this time I found a favorite in the Lo & Sons Catalina tote.

With multiple pockets including a large compartment at the base, staying organized with the Catalina is no challenge. I particularly love the exterior pocket that unzips to become an opening for your luggage handle. This way the struggle to find comfort with several travel bags is relieved - because we all need something to make that airport adventure a little easier.

Stay tuned for a full travel diary from Santa Fe, New Mexico!

  8. We love getting out into our amazing Western Australian countryside, whether it is down south amongst the forests, out to the wheatbelt and goldfields, up in the red dirt of the Pilbara or the amazing gorges of the Kimberley, we are there! We’ve been tenting, camper trailering, and now caravanning. I love the ease of putting up a caravan, but I miss the more out of the way places we could go with our camper trailer. And caravan parks, not for me, give me a free camp out in the bush any day. Happy holidays Jo.Alamo Coupon codes
