You can take a girl out of the office, but you can’t take the office out of the girl. Can I get an “amen”? You’re so used to working on-the-go that heading out to the beach while in the middle of a big project isn’t such a bad thing. All you need is a sleek travel bag that protects your laptop, tablet, power bank, what-have-you, plus a detailed Excel sheet itinerary (complete with time slots for emails and conference calls) and you’re good to go. Trust me, the refreshing view will do your headspace and, ultimately, your project some good.

Not everyone is built to survive the discomforts of nature and, you know what, that’s totally fine. There’s so much to explore in the city and it requires just as much planning and protection when walking unfamiliar streets. You need a bag that’s cute to take photos with and has smart safety features (read: clasp-locking system and anti-theft technology) so you’re free to roam without worries. Besides, you’re on vacation for some very important missions, people. That’s to eat, see, shop — and repeat.

A long weekend is never truly long enough, but that never stopped you from ticking off your travel bucket list anyway. If you’re that type to squeeze in multiple stops and activities in short vacation periods then you’ll need a travel companion that’s just as bold and kaladkarin as you. Think: a lightweight, spacious carryall with enough room for your pasalubongs and able to fit the standard airline hand-carry specifications. Sport it in a hot pink colorway to the mountain, the sea, the bus stop or the ferry and you’ll be the most envied backpacker of the bunch, tbh.
