I read on so many websites that this is the bag to have for a RTW trip. It is big enough for what you need, but small enough to carry on to most airlines. Never out of my sight = less chance of losing my stuff. I ordered it about a month ago from this site. It arrived last week.
I had to have it shipped to a friend of mine because I am technically homeless at this point and her reaction was, “That’s all you are taking?!?”. When I told her it was indeed all I was taking, she looked at me skeptically. I just told her, “I will make it work.”, but the small seed of doubt is now in my head. I WILL make it work. I will bring everything I need, and a few things I want, but with a little planning I can make it happen.
