This innovative piece of luggage changes size depending on how much stuff you need to pack. It’s a real one of its kind at this moment in time, and it’s inflatable. It sounds like a strange idea, but it looks to be incredibly successful.

Swiss brand Freitag has made bags out of old truck tarpaulins, used bike inner tubes and recycled car seat belts for the past 24 years. Now the company has developed a new inflatable travel bag to add to its range of more than 70 products.

The Zippelin uses inner tubes that inflate to create a frame for the bag, which can expand to up to 85 liters capacity. It has wheels for easy transportation, and rolls up into a small bundle for easy storage.

Each of the products is one of a kind, made from different recycled materials. The company has become known for high-quality, durable products, and the Zippelin has been a sensation on Kickstarter.

The bag will be available for €520 euros ($605) when deliveries begin in July 2018. There will likely be huge demand for such a unique product, so if you want to make sure your luggage expresses your personality, get online and order now.

Exploring Australia’s Rainforests

When travelers imagine Australia, most do not picture a lush rainforest with a serene waterfall cutting through the trees. However, that is, in fact, reality. Australia is not just desert or Outback. Although famous for its arid weather and desert oasis, Australia is a diverse country and home to some of the most beautiful rainforests in the world. Similar to other rainforests, Australia's are home to dangerous animals and fauna not friendly toward people, but, on the other hand, many have reported taking peaceful nature walks and feeling more connected to the Eerth from exploring the vast rainforest.

Leave Troublesome Rideshare Worries Behind

We can see it now and remember when it happened to us: Watching as the black car icon loops around and around, seemingly endlessly, and our wait time on the rideshare app continually changes. Long wait times and confused drivers are just a few bothersome issues that can nag at rideshare users. Need a solution? Ditch rideshares altogether in favor of renting a car on your next trip.
