I have started travelling quite often with work and as such have had to learn how to travel light or at least pack efficiently. I never book hold luggage and as such have one bag for carry on luggage. Even on a day trip I find it so hard to take one bag only as I hate having to use a laptop bag as my carry on luggage but at the same time the laptop is large and doesn’t fit my normal handbags.
Today I was away for a day trip and had to take my laptop and writing pad as well as notes with me and get them all in one bag. My laptop bag is a boring standard one that came free, it has seen many better days and is really uncomfortable to carry for any length of time.
I was very kindly sent a Mia Tui bag to try as a hand luggage bag. The style of bag I got sent was the Amelie mustard bag as seen here.
On first view I thought it looked very big, this was mainly as I was used to carrying tiny bags up to now and trying to shove them inside the before mentioned uncomfortable laptop bag.
Last night I packed the bag ready to go this morning, on the way out the door today I lifted the bag and left no stress over fitting everything in and plenty of room.
Once at the airport I went through security where I was able to get access to the laptop easily as well as using the small clear bag to hold my liquids. There was no mad scramble and it was stress free I normally hate this part as I feel all fingers and thumbs trying to fit everything back in.
I carried the bag for at least an hour this morning and the same this evening and found it very comfortable the straps distributed the weight well and I didn’t end up with welts on my shoulders.
- my laptop
- laptop charger
- kindle charger
- iPhone charger
- work mobile
- packet of tissues x 2
- piriton tablets
- paracetamol tablets
- A4 file block

As you can see it all fitted in easily. I found this bag fantastic and will be making it part of my luggage for all trips.
