After much research and testing out products, I finally purchased some new luggage for my upcoming adventures. I headed to Victoria Station at Doncaster Shoppingtown and took advantage of their great sales!
I spoilt myself and bought a business style carry on (which is perfect for housing my camera gear and laptop), and a large, light suitcase, both from the Samsonite collection. Their luggage is so sleek, stylish and colourful (and not to mention affordable) I picked up both items for under $400. It sounds pricy but I look at it as an investment. I figure, if you buy the good stuff first off, you will spend less replacing it down the track.
With my cary on, I opted for the business rolling tote. It is designed to carry your laptop and other documents, making it easy to access when sitting on top of your luggage.
I originally wanted to buy something colourful with a hard case but the convenience of being able to leave my cary on onto of my big suitcase outweighed the fashion side of things. I think I will appreciate my choice when I am dragging my luggage down a cobble stone path all by myself in a few months!
