This post is part of a bigger compilation of thoughts and thus, it might have no sense or lead to miss information. If you want to fully read it, start from here, otherwise continue reading.

One of those things that makes me wonder what would be a great purchase, were the travel bags or luggage. I wanted to be slick and strong enough to resist bad handling and even heavy treatment, but at the same time something easy to handle and light so I can use as much as possible in the airplane.

Checking on the Internet and chatting with my mate Victor, found a great deal with the travel bags, because are light, most cases has wheels (which is great when the content is too heavy) and once used easy to store.

And right there is the important feature “easy to store”, many people don’t realise why good bags are better than suitcases which will be nicer to look at... But when you are moving anywhere in permanent basis you most think about the space you are going to use in your temporal or final residence. In our case we bought 8 bags (maximum allowed by IOM and the airlines) in which we stuffed all our immediate things, and then moved to my parents home to finally take it with us to Australia.

And the question will be, “tell me Rod, what travel bags should I get?” the answer is, it depends on you. I choose something alike to the picture, the colour doesn’t really matter the important thing is you feel comfortable with it and you have (or will have) the proper space to save it for later.

Next you will need to close unnecessary things.
