Travelling is all about preparations
And preparations includes:
- Air tickets
- Travel Essentials
To me everything can be arranged by a travel agency / third party but not your travel essentials. So having the right things to bring along your trip is very very important ᕙ(⇀‸↼‶)ᕗ
The most import travel essential to me is having the RIGHT LUGGAGE (≧ω≦)ゞ Because that is basically your mobile wardrobe and storage when you travel. And trust me, you really don’t want your belongings inside to be wreaked when it’s being handled in the airport.
Being a frequent traveler for already 4 years in a row, I realised it is really really important that you invest in a good luggage. Because a good luggage will save you alot of hassle that you might encounter during a trip.
- Having too much loose baggage because of too much shopping
- Having good skills to maneuver the luggage if the wheels isn’t smooth
- Protecting your belongings inside the luggage which might be damage due to harsh throwing in the airport baggage facilities
- Mobilizing yourself with a luggage
- and many more…
Rewinding to 4 years back, I had never paid attention in investing a good luggage and I was always attracted to cheap and cute luggage you might see online or in some luggage shops. The price are probably S$100 or less and they just had the power to lure you to get one. But after awhile, you’ll realise that your money is put to a waste as they have a really short lifespan and most of them do not offer any warranty. So it’s probably a buy and throw away kind of scenario.
What made me switched my mind to invest in a decent luggage was my virgin trip to Paris 2 years ago. At that time, the airline I was flying on restricted that each passenger is to have only 1 check-in baggage and I was reluctant at that time to pay more to get additional check-in baggage. So, I thought that it was time to get a proper reliable luggage to roam the streets of Paris. I walked in to the luggage department in one departmental store and just shopped aimlessly. Because at that time, I seriously do not know which brand was good and there were too many choices. And yes, budget was a constraint too. What struck my head was to find the lightest luggage, as I had only 25kg luggage allowance, I wanted the luggage to be light enough so I can buy more things in Paris ┏(｀ー´)┛
I picked up a few brand names and models and went home to do some researched and I finally nailed one down
Delsey is a renowned French luggage brand and the Helium series at that time won the lightest luggage in the world. And furthermore it came in my favorite shade of pink! Ｏ(≧▽≦)Ｏ And it was THE PERFECT LUGGAGE for my trip. And I was very contented with my purchase.
Last year, I decided to get another Delsey because I was going on a trip to Tokyo with my bf and I needed alot of luggage space. And I was lucky enough that Delsey released some new models that month and I fell right straight in love ♡ with the Belfort series.

Struggling in choosing the right luggage? Let me give you some tips!
Here’s how I made my choice…
Questions to ask yourself when getting a luggage:
- Type of trip? If it’s shopping, then get the large or extra large size luggage
- Color preference
- Heavy duty or light duty?
- Price budget
- Type of closure. Zip or Clip?
- Hard or Soft case?
- Number of wheels. 2 or 4?
- Luggage weight
- Warranty period
- Material type
With these questions, you will more or less know what you want and it makes it easier for sales personnel to help you too.
