I recently had an overnight trip coming up and had always struggled with the amount of baggage
I needed for just one night away.  Then I found the Samsonite Mobile Office/Overnighter it’s fabulous & was on sale!

yes samsonite

There are individual compartments for your laptop, ipad, phone,
files and clothing, and it handles brilliantly.
I wore the same pair of boots on both days and carried my coat but I had pants,
a jumper, large scarf, underwear & toiletries and they fit in comfortably.
In summer with clothing being lighter I would possibly be able
to fit in a few pairs of sandals.

This piece of luggage just might cure me of over packing syndrome,
which I have suffered from my entire adult life – stay tuned!

I recently started planning a holiday which lead me from one website to another which is where
I found these stunning hotel images.TRAVEL - once a year
