The ALPAKA Alpha Sling is the perfect travel companion for anyone looking for the freedom to work and play from anywhere on the globe. The stylish bag was designed to be as lightweight as possible, but strong enough to carry a tablet — and still packing on a few extra features to boot.


Some of those features include a lockable flap for security, a buckle on the strap for quick removal and a stabilizer strap to keep it in place. There’s also plenty of room for your gear. The Alpha Sling boasts expandable internal storage, a hidden passport compartment, Nano SIM cardholder, quick access pocket in front and two more zipped pockets in the front and rear. Bonus features include an RFID pocket and an integrated key tether lanyard. Optional accessories like the UP cardholder and travel lock make it one of the more secure tablet bags available for travelers


The bag itself comes in two styles — black ballistic nylon or gray faux wool. The inside of the bag is made with ripstop nylon, while the outside is reinforced with a water-resistant coating and underside.


The Alpha Sling is set to retail for $89 with first shipments beginning in August 2019. Check out the website for more information on features and ways to order.

Kenwood Inn & Spa

My husband and I arrived to Kenwood Inn & Spa about an hour before check-in time and luckily our room was ready. The front desk attendant asked if we need assistance with our luggage, then escorted us to our room. Along the way, she pointed out the rooms past the lobby where the daily complimentary breakfast is served, as well as complimentary wine tastings. I enjoyed a glass of welcome Champagne as we made our way to the room.
