What are the 2019 trends in Luggage design and colour?

Subdued, earthy and practical! Or as described in the 2019/2020 Look book, from the ILM International Leather Goods Fair, held in Offenbach in February, “A quieter form of style is developing.

What is the best Cheap Luggage?

This is an excellent question!  Before we present our 5 best cheap luggage examples, let’s assess what you mean by “cheap”?

Travel lovers dislike spending excess money on luggage, as it leaves less $ for fun activities.  Also, why invest hundreds of dollars into a suitcase, which a baggage handler might smash on your first flight? However a “budget cheap” suitcase might fail during your first trip, creating frustration and inconvenience. And if it needs replacement overseas....was it “really” a cheap suitcase?  Also it is usually only the respected “brand” luggage that carry spare parts in Australia.


Can suitcases be recycled?

In a world of limited resources, environmentally focussed travellers are asking the question, “Can suitcases be recycled?”.

 Depending on your definition of recycling, the answer is Yes!

-          By Outdoortravelgirl Nov ‘18

 Outdoortravelgirl_cosmoliteThere is a touch of frost in the air in Europe as winter begins to descend, and the smell of warm croissants envelope you as you walk past the local boulangerie (bakery). 

I am currently in Belgium and the Christmas lights are already beginning to appear in windows on the quaint cobbled streets. 

Winter in Europe is a magical place, filled with snow-capped mountains, mulled wine (hot wine - no it's not as gross as it sounds), and petite Christmas markets with real pine Christmas trees in a lot of the towns and villages. 

For many of us Australians who have never experienced a white Christmas, it's an exciting time, and an experience you will never forget.  

 Although it really is a magical season, it's always important that when you come across to Europe you are prepared. 

Here are three things that I recommend for any Aussies who are traveling across to Europe this winter.
