I’m in LOVE…

Have you ever bought something and then totally fallen in love with it even more when you have gotten it home and seen that it has more cool features than you thought… Well I have today… With of all things a shoulder bag… Now coming from me that’s really strange because to me a bag is a bag… To others it will leave them scratching their heads as on looks this shoulder bag offers nothing… So take a look and then I will comment more… I did however buy it in black… Here it is…

Pacsafe Metrosafe 250 GII Anti-Theft Features:
eXomesh slashguards
Slashproof Carrysafe shoulder strap
Turn & lock strap hook
Smart zipper security
RFID-blocking pocket
Pacsafe Metrosafe 250 GII Features:
Main padded slip pocket for netbook or iPAD/tablet
Main compartment padded mp3 pocket and headphone port
1 padded electronic gadget pocket
Pen holder / key clip
Padded back support
2 water bottle / compact umbrella side pockets
Rear zippered pocket with concealable zipper puller

With going overseas next year I have been on the lookout for a bag that will not be too bulk to carry my ipad in and feel secure with it… No where has anything I liked except for this shoulder bag at Luggage Direct… So after weighing up the pros and cons ( mainly the $$$ factor ) yesterday Ruben and I went to the luggage shop and purchased it… Tonight I have have had a good look over it with all its bells and whistles… Greatly impressed for sure… I even think on a day that I just want to carry a camera body and just 1 lens it will be perfect… doin’ a great big happy dance… hehehehe…

More Shopping


I have been going over my recent purchases and knew I was still not completely happy about 2 items that weren’t meeting my requirements 100% so I took them back and exchanged them for something I feel more safe carrying about when traveling… I wasn’t after something this big but it needed to be able to carry my ipad in it etc… This is what I found and I will get lots of use when travel interstate as well as overseas …

I’m happy happy happy now… hehehe…

Luggage Shopping


Well who would have thought there would be so much choice, so I ended up at a place that had EVERYTHING in one place… Do up think I got all I needed ???

Look What Arrived


Exciting times ahead… Now I am able to start the next process… To book Travel Insurance with AAMI, cause they are the only company I have found that will cover ALL my camera gear under their standard policy…

Todays Research Is On Luggage

Now who would have thought that there would be SOOOOOOO many choices out there…

Just walk past a bag shop and you will see what I mean, let alone looking online…

Lots and lots and I am not talking size either cause I know I will need a big one…

There is this style and that style…

So do you buy a good brand with a long warranty that will last the life of my first passport ???

Hard or soft outside ???

Color wise do you buy one that stands out or one that blends in and attach a colorful ribbon ???

I do like the ones that rotate 360 degrees…

So please share with me your thoughts…

Hello December 2012 – You snuck up on me…

We are now on the down hill run to the end of 2012 and greeting 2013…

What a year 2013 is going to be and it will be over before we know it…

This is the busy end of the year with school finishing

( oh that means school holidays and NO time to myself.. doh.. )

Christmas to prepare for then full steam into New Years Eve…

Fingers crossed my Passport arrives this week so it can be placed under the Christmas tree that I put up tonight… Its a fibre optic tree so no need for decorations and it lights up as soon as you plug it in… Still searching for the Angel to go on top though…

Holiday plans have slowed till my passport arrives, then it will be time to start booking hotels and tours… Oh I cant wait…
