Good morning!! This is Jimmy and Welcome to Part 2 of my trip to Bali, Indonesia!!!
This is Part 2: Packing for my trip.
The first thing I need to buy is the best backpacks for adventure travel for my family. I remember that my last suitcase which I bought in 2014 had been completely broken because the zippers were break, split, pinch and rip while I catch a connecting flight in Survarnabhumi airport, then I tried to fix a stuck zipper. Unfortunately, the flight back to Dallas-Fort Worth airport, It happened to the suitcase wheels and and the suitcase handle. I don’t understand what happened to my favorite suitcase.
Although that was quite the best travel suitcase I have ever had, I know I will have to replace it eventually! Based on my experience choosing for my best travel bag, I will give some guidelines to choose travel suitcase suitable for yourself and top 5 best travel suitcases in 2019!
As you know, I need to collect 3 new travel backpacks for three people: for my husband, my daughter and me. Our trip to Bali, Indonesia is an eco-travel so this post, I will talk about bags for this travel. Here are some types suitable for adventurous travel, let’s see!
