Mi Pac offers several great prints on their canvas and faux suede bags, and I had to choose the leopard (obviously). The bag is a great size for a long weekend, or maybe even a little longer if you aren't packing four pairs of shoes, and it feels pretty durable. Only time will tell if it can handle my obsessive overpacking tendencies, but I'm quite hopeful it's up to the task.
These British designed bags won't break the bank at $50, and you can find them for purchase at ASOS.
Since I'm on the topic of road trips, I though I'd share some advice, now that I'm a 'seasoned' solo traveler:
- Open you bottle of water before you start driving. I'm too feeble to break the plastic seal with only one hand and holding between my legs proved to be a bad idea.
- Polarized sunglasses make a huge difference. The glare from the sun reflecting off the road and especially other cars can be rough. I never realized how much easier it is to see with the polarized lenses, so now I keep my pair in the car at all times.
- Have a good driving playlist ready to go. Driving through different states means the radio stations are always changing and why deal with commercials and the same ten songs of the moment on a constant loop when you don't have to? You can check out my playlist here!
- Check the car for spiders and other bugs before you leave. I'm certain there is nothing more distracting than a spider or a cricket crawling across your dash... both of which I have indeed discovered in my car while driving. Not fun.
