    hmmm, what's wrong with this picture?

    on top of that, she's packed herself in a lovely steel/solar aeronaut and a navy/cayenne medium cafe bag!
    hi- i am mona, the "wife!" i have to admit that i was reluctant at first to carry "only" tom bihn bags on my trip to spain. the reason being that it would make maverick very content! anyway, i realized as i was packing that i really did need a few tom bihn bags as they are practical and easy to handle. plus, i love how they have pockets strategically placed that just make sense!
    while traveling, i was amazed at how organized my stuff remained, and how easy it was to travel with these bags.

    the bags just made my trip a whole lot more enjoyable. i got to spend time focusing on my vacation, as opposed to spending time searching for my items and staying organized!

    Gorgeous pictures!

    More supermodels in Maverick family!

    Your wife is really a good sport to make sure there is a Tom Bihn bag in her pictures.

    pictures from spain

    the wife is back, and brought us a few pictures...

    this first one is of the steel/solar aeronaut and navy/cayenne medium cafe bag. the aeronaut meets iberia airlines' carry-on sizing requirements.

    Jaiden is the most photogenic of Tom Bihn supermodels!

    I also truly appreciate your great description of Amtrak and what it can hold.

    I took their Washington DC/Baltimore line a couple of years ago.
    I remember, now that I had my Brain Bag with me.

    I hope to take the same trip, one of these days....
    DC to New York.

    The train is the way to go since traffic and nightmare parking do not make for a stress free time.

    I love carousels, thanks for letting me know about the one in Central Park.

    Now, if I understand correctly, you packed only the Synapse and everything fit in it.
    The Shop Bag was inside, folded ready to hold the things you might buy on the trip?
    i had the camera by the wrist strap when we boarded the train. i could have squeezed it in, but i didn't want to squish our bagels . but i put it in after we had our breakfast and it fit just fine.

    i enjoyed the train ride - it was about 3 and a half hours each way. the acella is faster and makes fewer stops, so it takes less time. jaiden said after we had breakfast that he was ready to get off of the train, but i explained that we weren't there yet. then we started reading and doing some activities and he got distracted. on the way back, he said he wanted the first stop (which was newark, nj) to be our stop. but he also fell asleep soon after that and had a good 2 hour nap on the train ride back.

    i guess the flight into jfk or lga is shorter than the train ride, but you have to get there earlier and go through security. it can also cost a bit more than a train if you're planning a last minute trip.

    i think our next trip to new york will be a 2 day trip, and we'll pack ourselves into a western flyer.
