    That works much better for me. 8am Pacific Time is 5am New Zealand DST whereas 1pm is a much more comfortable 10am.

    I've seen some photos of people wheeling their roller bags through the water in Venice. Another situation where having a Tom Bihn bag would make travel so much easier!

    TA varies wildly by country. The Australia forum is just awful, but the Japan forum is fairly civil and helpful.

    I agree with the others, don't rent a car to get around Sydney. If you go to the Blue Mountains and want to explore beyond Katoomba, Leura etc, a car could be useful, but you could also look at...

    I think the A30 is an ideal size for Japan. It fits well on luggage racks even on local trains and squeezes nicely into odd corners of very compact hotel rooms.

    Baggage charges on Japanese trains

    It has just been announced that there will be charges for oversize baggage on certain shinkansen routes in Japan.

    I find the three brown colours above a bit too much like cocoa, and lighter than I was thinking of, although 2322 is quite nice. I think a really dark brown would be a good alternative to black and...

    One point to note about size is that Australian sizing is different from US sizing, so it would pay to look at the size chart before ordering.

    I think Pantone's Black Coffee shade is more like what I had in mind.

    The actual Espresso shade is too black, and Coffee Bean is too reddish.

    It's a lovely sunny winter day here, so I went for a walk to the Wellington Botanic Gardens. Here's my Side Kick among the flowers in the Lady Norwood Begonia House.

    Can you take a few items out? I get to between 6 and 7kg if I've got winter clothes, but in summer it comes to a bit over 5kg.

    The Longchamp bag is pretty durable, and I don't overpack it. I've been quite happy with how it's held up so far, the odd scuff mark is all.

    I'm sorry to hear wasabi is being retired, but if other colours are going to used, could there be a return of sitka please? Sitka is a most beautiful green colour and I would love to see it again.
