Leaner, Meaner Wheelie
Here it is, my new wheelie bag!
My hope is that I will get along better with something more narrow and tall, rather than a square. I think it will be harder to destroy this one as in theory it should be more manageable on stairs. (Is my subconscious actually discussing men? What are the stairs a metaphor for?)
I really wanted the 195 euro Mandarina Duck one. It was a work of art (I am exaggerating but it's nice). But 3 out of 3 travel writers surveyed destroyed their first "real" suitcases, and one of those clobbered her second as well, so I thought perhaps this "Boomerang" (the house brand) wheeled duffel from El Corte Ingles would be a good test model.
Why? Because it was 39 euros. If I'm going to destroy another case, let's make it a cheap one.
