    Bags have a wonderful way of leaving an imprint on your palm or forearm as we travel with the kitchen sink.

    Travelling light is realising that your destination has all the shopping potential of where you have just come from.

    Narrow straps carve a furrow in your neck and shoulder that will suffer anyway whilst you are stuck in an aircraft seat for several hours. The stress of travel bunches up your neck and shoulders even without those long prone hours.

    So hold your bag looped over your forearm but resting against the body or over your one shoulder putting your hand over the top of the bag and holding the strap. This spreads the physical load so preventing physical stress.

    And bear in mind this bag is going to get squashed under weighty holdalls up in the cabin luggage. Will it survive its own stressors?

    And what do you stash in your overnight or weekender bag? Just a couple of changes of clothes, light and wrinkle free. Anything else can be bought at your destination, used and left behind.

    After all you are not off on a camping expedition to deepest, darkest remote nowhere.

    So which bag is for which destination, might you think?

    My view is the fold up bag is an overnighter in the same country.

    The striped bag is not quite total upmarket and maybe a 4 star hotel?

    The Vuitton can go anywhere of course up to 6 star and beyond.

    The Camel tote looks vaguely French, Oui?

    And the last one? An abstract art exhibition?

    What do you think?

    You can never go wrong with a Luis Vuitton. That is always my bag of choice! The suede one piques my interest. But I love my Louis!

    Love, Love the Louis but can’t go past the Longchamp Le Pliage for practicality. I always pack a few for the extra luggage on the return trip.
