Last day of August, I had one of the best Summers for years with lots of Sun and traveling, I hope we will still have some nice days, I want keep my shorts on just a bit longer and am not ready at all for the Dutch rainy and dark days. Luckily I will do some more travelling soon which brings me to the subject of travel essentials.. I am not really a backpack girl and love to travel in style!
I have a small wish-list for some time... because after breaking my black suitcase I am travelling with another oldie.. it is red, really easy to find back after a flight, but not really my thing! I am looking into suitcases for a while now, and a silver aluminium Rimowa suitcase is high on my wish-list, if only they were a bit more affordable for my wallet!
For shorter trips a nice weekend bag is on my list, the kind of essential belonging that you miss every time when it comes to making a small trip abroad. This black HOPE weekend bag with a beautiful matte surface looks like the perfect companion for short trips to Paris.
When travelling I am quite organized to be honest, I love to find my things without searching to long and therefor always use several smaller bags in my suitcase. I have a small Hope Ipad case for daily use and use a simple black toiletry bag with a good zipper for all my cables, as I love them to be protected.
Nothing worse then finding your Iphone cable broken in the mess of your bag on arrival don't you think, and having everything together is really easy also when checking in at the airport.
Midori Traveller's notebookWhen it comes to suitcases and bags it is a bit like collecting stationery, I love them to be as beautiful as possible and they really have to touch me. For quick notes on the road and when travelling for special projects and collecting all press material I use a moleskine notebook for every trip. The Midori traveller's notebook is a great example of being really practical (I love the plastic zipper inserts!) and beautiful at the same time! The picture above is from a former post on my blog, look it up here if you missed it. If you are looking for practical solutions also Muji offers a range of handy travel companions.
This is Ground
On my search for the perfect travel essentials I came across something super beautiful and I would love to get my hands on one of the beautiful black charcoal Tech dopp kits by Los Angeles based company This is ground.
Or even better this amazing Mobile office the Mod Laptop 2, a handcrafted piece of beauty that is fitted with high-power magnets, allowing seamless integration of the full line of Mod inserts, while also offering housings for power adapter, cords, pens, notepad, phone, hard drive, battery pack, glasses, cards, and currency.... sounds like my new best friend and perfect travel accessory for a blogger on the go! I would love you to share your favourite bags and travel accessories with me!
