My Best Travel Bags I use on Vacation

When planning for a vacation, one of the most important things to consider is the type of travel bag you will need. The right travel bag can make a huge difference in your comfort level and overall enjoyment. 


In my experience, having a variety of travel bags to choose from is essential, depending on the length and type of trip. For shorter trips, I prefer a carry-on-size suitcase with wheels and a retractable handle for ease of use. 

However, for longer trips, I opt for a larger suitcase. It’s also important to choose bags made from durable, water-resistant materials to protect your belongings in case of unexpected weather or spills. 


Ultimately, the travel bags you use for your vacation should fit your personal needs and preferences. With the right bags, you can travel with ease and make the most of your vacation experience

Small Crossbody Bag

I use this bag on a cruise to hold my key card, cell phone, and glasses. It’s also great for daily walks to carry your phone, wallet, cards, ID, keys, and other small items.

I make sure to bring my tote bag whenever we go sightseeing for the whole day.

Also, I always carry my grandson’s belongings while we travel together.

I found my perfect "camera bag" in Italy

“I have been on the lookout for a purse / camera bag for quite some time now. 

In my mind, I had a specific idea of what I needed- a bag that was spacious enough to hold one camera, one lens, and a battery pack.


Additionally, I wanted it to be able to accommodate my passport, wallet, sunglasses, and have external pockets to hold my phone.


Thankfully, I finally found the perfect bag during my trip to Italy.

*This bag is suitable for travel as a carry-on, but it has no wheels.

*If I need to check in a larger suitcase, I will use the purple bag with wheels. It is much easier to move this bag on wheels while walking at the airport.

Good luggage can come with a high price tag, but it can provide peace of mind.

However, I personally believe that cheaper bags can also last long if taken care of properly. While backpacks are a popular choice for travelers, tote bags can offer similar features that cater to specific needs.


Tote bags are generally easy to access and can hold items such as phones, tablets, toiletries, and shawls. It’s crucial to invest in a tote bag or a small carry-on that meets your specific travel requirements. There are many different types of bags available, including packable, convertible, weekender, and leather tote bags.


The bags that I prefer may not be suitable for everyone, so it’s important to consider what works best for you and your budget.

Can you remember a trip where you brought too many bags and never used them?

Oftentimes, we tend to overpack in order to be prepared for any situation that may arise.

It is important to assess and prioritize which items are truly necessary for your travels in order to condense your baggage and make the journey more efficient.

This can ultimately result with less time and energy wasted on lugging around unnecessary possessions.


So next time, before packing, take a moment to consider which items are essential and which are not!!

**Choosing the right bag.

**1 bag for Under the Seat. Big enough for all my extras and maybe a few clothes,

**1 Medium size Suitcase

**1 Camera bag/purse

**1 Small purse 

***I will bring a BIG suitcase on a cruise; I will need more clothes, lol.
