How to Travel with Style

Buying the ideal luggage wasn’t as straightforward as I imagined it would be, but to travel with style, I had to make the extra effort. 

I thought I needed a real vacation a few months ago. I hadn’t gone away for a significant amount of time, actually, five years ago. My parents funded my trip to Europe after my first year of study. I spent my entire fourteen-day trip traveling to eight different countries while staying in youth hostels. I had my dependable backpack with me as luggage. Also, I attached a Canadian flag to my backpack after some more seasoned travelers recommended it. Besides, aren’t Canadians beloved by all, right?

There would be several differences on this journey. I’ve decided to return to Europe, but I’ll be traveling in style this time. I yearned for some first-class bags because I’m taking a first-class plane to London. It’s so challenging to shop for luggage. It’s one of those items that’s not used often enough to warrant a significant investment, yet buying inexpensive luggage would be a terrible waste of time and money. I decided to meet up with the friends I’ll be traveling with for an afternoon of traditional American retail therapy.

was The American Tourister my life-saver?

We went from department store, to big-box store, to specialized store and back again during the afternoon. For those who are not familiar with these terms, a department store is a retail establishment offering a wide range of consumer goods in different areas of the store, each specializing in a product. A big-box store, also known as a hyperstore, supercentre, superstore, or megastore, is a physically large retail establishment, usually part of a chain of stores.

How to travel with style was something slightly more difficult than I had imagined it would be.

I finally settled on American Tourister, Briggs & Riley, and Zero Halliburton as my top three options. They are all fairly priced and each has some tempting features. I once read that one of the best industry guarantees applies to American Tourister luggage. Since 1993, Briggs & Riley has been producing high-quality goods and providing a comprehensive warranty. The name Zero Halliburton pretty much says it all.

The Zero Halliburton allowed me to travel with style

After giving it some contemplation, I decided that the Zero Halliburton suitcase was the right choice for me. I have to say, I do love this luggage. James Bond would use a Zero Halliburton if he were moving a piece of luggage containing priceless treasures. I spent $900.00 on a 26-inch Suiter, which is a somewhat inflated pricing. Made of a lovely brushed aluminum, it appears to be able to endure an explosion, let alone the Heathrow baggage handlers. I’ll be traveling with my valued collection of designer handbags, so I can relax knowing that my amazing new suitcase will keep them safe and secure. Should I flash the Canadian flag over it, in your opinion?
