Last time I went to The Americas, I used my ‘Constellation’ suitcase (which I got from Argos). This is a pink, hardcase suitcase on wheels, and it turned out to be super super heavy. My new case is a pink IT Luggage suitcase, which is apparently the lightest in the world. It’s about 2kg empty, and it was very light when I was carrying it home…Or I am very strong.
It’s soft shelled so we’ll see how it holds up. It’s pretty roomy inside. I’ve got almost everything I need for a week away and there’s plenty more room for shopping! It’s just a giant open space on one side and 4 pockets on the other. Two are mesh and two are thin plastic, they don’t look too strong. One of them was already damaged but it looked like it had been sliced accidentally rather than ripping. Buuuut I couldn’t be bothered to take it all the way back for that.
Anyway, now I’m all packed I really want to…still got a week to wait!
