Lukus and I are leaving for Honduras tomorrow for a week trip. We will have the pleasure of visiting with friends who run an NGO that works with impoverished communities encouraging and empowering them to change their perspective. We are excited to go, as we haven’t been there since 2008.
All that to say; I need to pack a bag. And not just any bag, a portable one. The town where our friends have a home is off the beat and track, so lugging around a giant suitcase just won’t work. Instead I will be relying on a weekender.
I have always been a big fan of a weekender bag (see my post on weekenders for the guys). To begin with, they can travel as a carryon on the plane. Second, they aren’t clunky and can be folded up. Also, these bags have personality. They aren’t your standard issue black suitcases (which have their place), but bags that actually have the ability to say something about their owner. Oh and of course a weekender is the perfect size for a weekend getaway (who’d have thought?!)!
If you don’t have a weekender I strongly suggest that you purchase one. Here are a few examples that may work for you:
