Sometimes I have crazy ideas that actually work out. My recent crazy idea was to take my family to the UK for three weeks. A fantastically uncrazy idea was to bring my packing cube shoulder bag along. Its light weight, durable, and holds a lot. I held my journal, three passports, a set of water color paints, two granola bars, guide book, and other various items we picked up along the way.
The bag was so handy and light (even as I filled with so many "necessary" items) I forgot I was wearing it. Here is the only "bag cameo" as it sit on Hadrian's Wall in Northumbria National Park. Lastly you can see it on my hip as we wander through the Rievaulx Abbey ruins. A perfect trip, made better, by not having to worry about what I was carrying or what I was carrying it in. Thank you Tom Bihn.
