    Ilkyway visited Ceepee - There are bags in it

    The first week of November I visited Ceepee in England. Funnily enough, even so we both own the odd Tom Bihn bag ;-) we have no bag in the same colorsceme. (Not counting accesorize or shop bags). So this makes for a nice mixture of common ground but interesting differences, if that makes sense.

    Here you see me at about 10:30 PM the day before leaving... I was flying Easyjet and opted to not pay any extra luggage fees, so ONE bag onley:

    In this house it is NOT ME who is the packing specialist... but I was determined so:

    And this is the next morning my bags sitting all perked up to go to the airport with me. Crisps are for the drive :-)

    Nice packing, Ilkyway! Did you bring the shop bag on board? Surely there will be more pictures, right?

    Even so, what I said about bags and we not having one that is the same, take a look at these two beautys:

    Ilkyway visited Ceepee - There are bags in it-img_4491-jpg

    Ceepees (the one with the red zipper pulls) has steel lining and mine is solar. Oh and hers is Portable Culture, some of us care about this :-)

    We should have made someone take a picture of us wearing them, but I was afraid that person would run away with my phone 8-O. No I was not, we where just chatting constandly and forgot to ask someone.

    Is that Grape? I haven't seen it in person, but it's really pretty in your photos. I spy something Nordic too...my favorite color (so far) as who knows what future loveliness is coming from the minds/hands of the TB Crew!

    ETA: I posted the above reply before your Synapse Nordic photos showed up...gorgeous! Sounds like y'all had a great time :)

    So we had some fun: This scary dude is sitting on a boat that is in the Themse.

    and on the same river: someone trying to get from a lower part of the river to a higher one. Looks as if he lives a highly portable live, right?

    We made a daytrip to Oxford and apart from the rain (duh!) it was gourges! Such a cute town.

    German toilets are very boaring most of the time but look at this pink afair at Jamie's Italien! Oh and that is the only bag you will get in this post, sorry ;-)

    And than we went here:

    All the good food and the heavy culture in that old city called for a bit of fantasy-fun.

    @Pokilani yes it did, it made a great inflight bag too as I am not sure if it was Rocks or kkintea suggested somewhere.

    @threeteez not sure, what you mean with Grape but we had great fun and as for the Nordic-love... sigh, I know what you mean... sigh!

    So German beer-person in England... Had to take a good look at Engish beer, had I not? Ceepee took me to the Wychwood Brewery and I have to confess: even it looks very weird to my eyes not to have at least three cm of white foam on a glas of beer, the taste was very good.

    Ilkyway visited Ceepee - There are bags in it-img_4547-jpg

    Mind you, I am sort of clumbsy and Ceepee is very sweet in trying to keep me out of harms way so she was numerosly trying to do so by the phrase "mind the..." so when I saw this witch... I asked her to pose next to it, and she did :-) (This was prior to any beer if you HAVE TO KNOW9

    The Brain Bag is a great travel bag. It just takes it all in and than radiates conficance.

    Big Brain Bag says good by to that little Synapse 19 very symbolic if you compare the owners. :-P

    And than, sitting at the gate, waiting to board, my hubby asks, when to expect me on German soil... somehow I never tolled him, so I looked it up. That is why I need such organized bags: because I totally lack inner organisation...

    The Purple bag in the first photo is a Plum Brain Bag. Hopefully that's the one you mean :)

    Is that from the camera's perspective, or that of the subjects being photographed? ;)
