ROSE DAILY DOSE 2.10.2109 AWAY LUGGAGE

Time to plan a trip

Time to plan a trip

One of my goals for 2019 was to streamline my life with fewer, better things. I remain a maximalist, however, there is no denying that my day to day life and travel style needed some tweaking. As I have had a bad back forever (scolosis) and it has only gotten worse with age, I’ve decided I just have to do something about the way I manage my “stuff” on the road. For someone who loves travel as much as I do, you would think I would be an expert packer. NOPE. I’m terrible at it. I always overpack, bring too much that I never use and end up with a terrible back and shoulder from lugging around so much CRAP. As it often happens in my life, once I start thinking about something (a suitcase, a car, a city, etc.) it starts to show up EVERYWHERE. I literally had not given any thought whatsoever to the Away brand of luggage, and then once the seed was planted, BOOM! Away was showing up everywhere. A friend told me about how great it was and prompted me watch youtube videos on how much you can pack in a bag. I then come home to my apartment, and there in the mailroom is a giant AWAY box. It started showing up in random emails (hello Nordstrom). This was all over the course of 24 hours. I had a friend visiting from Shanghai and she needed luggage so I told her take my old bag because I was going to order a new one. And that’s excatly what I did. Two days later this beauty showed up at my door. I am absolutely smitten. And determined. This bag is called the bigger carry-on and I am determined to only use it for long weekends. In the past, a long weekend consisted of a carry on bag and a much larger one. So ridiculous! Trying to manage two bags through an airport or Amtrak station is just nuts. Let’s see how I do moving forward. Stay tuned….
