      Sydney coffee FTW.
      Love the pics! And the nordic S25 and the coffee recommendation : )

            A well deserved family break to Center Parcs.

            With TB gear serving everything from basic clothes carry to daily swimming kit to all other bits and pieces. And the kid's field journals for a little bit of art if we can squeeze it in.

              At SFO waiting to go to Guatemala. I didn't take any shots of them in Guatemala, but I will be going back in two years, so maybe I will remember :) I returned from a medical mission, and while the S25 and A45 were great choices, the passport pouch is one of the best investments I have ever made. Almost everyone that saw mine asked me about it, so sales might spike a little.

              For Darcy (or anyone interested):

              As for the mission, I am still processing it. It was really amazing to be able to help as many people as we did, but there were so many we had to turn away. The town and people were very welcoming and appreciative. We usually started around 6am and finished around 8pm everyday. We were there 5 days, and I assisted in about 45 surgeries.

              Here is the OR table I worked on for most of my time there, there are a total of 4 OR tables in the room.

                  They're original Nordic Dyneema with a white grid. Now a discontinued colour I'm afraid.

                    Ahh, thanks! It must have looked darker in my eyes due to the lighting where the photo was shot.

                      I've just travelled from Wellington to Perth, and then back with a two and a half day stop in Sydney. Here's my A30 on the ferry crossing Sydney Harbour to the hotel.

                      Travelling with cabin baggage only was great. When I arrived back in Wellington last night, it took only 15 minutes from the plane through immigration and customs to getting into a taxi. In Sydney I put my luggage in a storage place near Circular Quay while I spent the last morning sightseeing and shopping. There was a whole cruise ship unloading at the same time and some of those people had insane amounts of luggage. The couple in front of me in the queue had two large suitcases and four small bags between them and spent over $50 on luggage storage.

                        My sitka large shop bag and nordic halcyon Side Effect outside British Museum. They have bag searches now. The shopbag was searched. The Side Effect was not.

                          North Queensland to New York

                          Recently my husband and I flew from our home in North Queensland, Australia to New York. While we have made this trek many, many times before, this was our first time to do it with cabin baggage only. The verdict from my husband, who has come to see the payoff from my bag obsession: 'It's liberating!'.

                          One short leg down, two hefty ones to go. Here are our two black ballistic A45's, plus my original halcyon LCB, at the airport in Brisbane:

                          Phew, more than halfway there. At the lounge at LAX, my A45 made a decent footrest:

                          When bags improve the quality of life! Travelling more lightly facilitated an overnight stay with friends that otherwise would have been too difficult. Instead of needing to get our usual van service from JFK to our final destination in Connecticut, we were able to detour first to Brooklyn, and the next day take the subway into Manhattan and catch a commuter train from Grand Central to Connecticut. My middle-aged self can't drag a big suitcase up and down the station stairs they way I used to, but I can carry an A45 in backpack mode. Here's my husband on the subway with his A45 (and Tumi tote).

                          Here's a view looking down the LCB on my lap to my A45, riding between my knees (feet keeping the end from touching the subway floor):

                              Thanks, Rocks! Funny you should say that, because I was a bit uncomfortable with the overhang of my husband's A45 on both sides, even though the car wasn't crowded. It was unintentional, as he'd never ever be a seat hog. One of my pet peeves is disrespectful behaviour on public transport--bags on seats, and especially feet! As an ex-New Yorker I probably have strong views on good and poor etiquette.

                                That explains it! You know.
                                One seat over is my favorite seat on the train. I like to lean.
