I’ve always been a traveling girl. Put me on a plane and send me somewhere I’ve never been and I am one excited gal. In fact, in just 2 weeks, I’ll be flying up to New York City for the BlogHer conference and I can’t wait. I’ve only been to New York one time (in 2010 for the Nate Berkus show) and that was quite the experience for me. I’ve always wanted to go back and now I get the chance to explore the Big Apple even more.
So, just in time for my upcoming trip to NYC, I also got the opportunity to review a piece of luggage from Atlantic. They sent this cute little suitcase to me and asked me to fill it up, so I did. It has some great outside pockets, perfect for stuffing in small items and tucking away all those things we need when we travel. See those zipper pockets above? They hold a lot of stuff!
Like socks and underwear. And this suitcase is just the right size to roll on the plane and stow away. I try to pack lighter these days, so I don’t have to pay extra to check a bag. This size is perfect for that and at only 6.5 lbs. it’s lightweight too.
I stuffed it full and still had plenty of room for more, so this small suitcase should easily hold all I need for a 3 or 4 day trip. I pack a LOT lighter than I used to in my younger days. I’m looking forward to using this lightweight Atlantic case on my trip to NYC in August.
How about you?
Do you have a trip planned this summer? Are you a heavy packer or light one?
There’s a fun sweepstakes going on too with Atlantic Luggage and Legoland Sweepstakes.
You’ll have a chance to win a 2 day vacation for two adults and two children to Legoland in Florida.
- Prize includes a hotel for 2 nights (one 4 occupancy room)
- Car voucher
- Meet and greet with a LEGOLAND Master Model Builder
- And a free set of Atlantic luggage
Did you know that Legoland has a new waterpark (opened May 2012) with a wave pool, tube slides, and body slides. Families can also imagine, design, and build a unique LEGO vessel and set it afloat on the 1,000 ft long lazy river.
How about that prize for you and your kids? I don’t know a lot about Legoland, but I sure keep hearing about it, so it must be pretty awesome.
