Traveling is fun, international travel is even more fun. The hard bit is getting to your destination, trains, coaches, flights, tickets, passports; is bad enough but it’s made more tricky if you’ve got children with you on the trip. And the more children, the more hassle.
But the journeys’ only part of the trip. The bit that’s at each end of the journey, so we won’t dwell too much on that. After all you’re on vacation, so the important bit is the bit in the middle – the destination itself.
Obviously you have to pack, everyone has their own method and there’s probably a hundred different ways out there on the net. You’ll find some good tips for packing here. Packing tips
But we want to focus on what you put everything in. The suitcase the rucksack, the sports bag. Each has its place and you should select the one you feel most comfortable with.
The Three Piece Suitcase
We’re going to focus on the suitcase and in particular the 3 piece suitcase, like the ones here 3 piece luggage set
The reason we like the three piece is because of storage, when not in use. Each case is a different size and they all all fit inside the next one up. The result is that you only have one case to store between trips.
This is great but you should be quite discerning when selecting a new suitcase to purchase. When you’re in the shop or mall, they can all look very enticing. But looks can be deceiving. There are only three main aspects to consider when you’re looking for a new suitcase
- The case material: is it tough enough.
- The zip: is it rugged enough.
- The casters: are they robust enough.
Gets these right and your new suitcase will last you for years. And more important it won’t let you down in the middle of a trip.
Remember the shop environment is a nice place for a suitcases to hangout. An airport with to many clothes packed inside (we all do it) is fairly hostile place.
So concentrate on the big three.
