Synapse and Cafe Bag on an overnight work trip
I work from home but a few times a year I visit the office to catch up with everyone.
This trip was my first one with both my Synapse and my (medium) cafe bag.
I took my Synapse with me last time, and it was great not to have to pull my little case behind me (shaved valuable minutes off crossing London too!).
This time I wanted to take my tablet with me, so decided to use my cafe bag as my main carry bag. I used a 3D Clear Organizer Cube inside it (attached to a key strap) which worked really well for rounding up bits'n'bobs, and the little pockets within the cafe bag held my phone, lip gloss, pen, notebook, etc. I kept my train tickets in the little pouch that we were kindly sent as a gift a few months ago.
I love knowing where everything is, and when you're only taking a short trip I find it easier to 'live out of the bag' rather than unpack things.
In my Synapse I used my wasabi Clear Quarter Packing Cube to keep my toiletries in. They look so pretty together! The clear cube is so handy for seeing where my stuff is - again, without having to unpack it as such.
In the UK it's hard to pack for a short trip this time of year, as it can be so cold first thing in the morning yet really warm as the day progresses. I would definitely try out my Western Flyer next time I took a short trip this time of year.
The cafe bag has been perfect as a travel bag for keeping by 'seat stuff' by me - it has my iPad, Kindle, bits and pieces, and even fits my bottle of water. However, once I had my Synapse on my shoulders, I found it difficult to keep my cafe bag up there without slipping - so had to carry it by its grab handle. Other than that, I have been really impressed by how easily I have been able to keep my stuff organized inside it.
