Travelling light

Here in Europe with budget airlines restricting the amount of baggage you can freely carry on-board the aircraft as hand baggage. It is quite a skill to reduce your carry-on baggage to a minimum and to make the most of the space and weight you can take on any short trip, be it for business or pleasure.

For about five years I used to have frequent short trips to our second home in France, now we live at that house in France the direction of our travel has been reversed, with occasional trips back to UK to visit friends and family.

One website I discovered was One Bag, I found it whilst searching for Travel Lists for Philofaxy (honest!!) but the site does contain a lot of useful information, what to pack, different bag recommendations etc.

If you are a frequent traveller, I recommend a visit to One Bag.


We now have a Flickr Group called 'Bagsey' naturally!

Does your bag reflect your personality?

Usually I tend to ignore on-line advertising that appears on sites I regularly visit through RSS feeds etc.

However, I couldn't ignore this one this evening, and it prompted this post!
'Does your bag reflect your personality?..... get a bag that does... '
And the link took me to this site I think you will agree that the designs are beautiful. Simple not flashy, but well thought out designs. Expensive may be, but good design and quality never has been cheap.

Camera Bags and cases...

Yes it was camera bags of one sort or another that confirmed my own bag obsession!  I don't have a huge number, but it's other bags and cases that have been added over the years that increased the total number.

Now I live in France there is of course 'the Man Bag' which I am sort of using and you might have seen my post on Philofaxy. But I still look at some of the bags around.

I don't like bags that are way too big for what I'm carrying around at the time. My camera bag is more or less full, hardly a cubic centimetre is spare inside it, it contains two complete SLR cameras and lens to suit.

With cases, it's things for my iPod, and Sat Nav and all those other things that almost essential for modern life these days!!

Over the coming weeks I hope to post some articles about the various bags and cases I own, they might give you some ideas or inspiration, but also help you realise that may be you aren't quite as mad as you thought!!!

Are you kidding me??

So it's bags you want, eh?  Well.  Little did you know, I happen to be swimming in bags.

My mom has a thing for bags.  Mostly expensive ones.  Especially Coach. The problem is after she splurges on them, she often gets buyer's remorse.  Rather than return the bag, she jettisons.  Who's the lucky recipient?


Bring on the bags!
