Imagine a simple, convenient, easy-to-pack travel bag that even the one-and-only Oprah Winfrey recommends. According to travel bag company Paravel, its Fold-Up Bag is the “perfect bag for every day.”
As one of Oprah’s “Favorite Things” for 2018, Paravel’s fold-up bag is a handy travel accessory that can be quickly and neatly stowed when not in use. The multi-use bag can serve as a personal item on your next flight, it can slide over the handles of a wheeled carry-on bag for easy toting or it can be folded and stored inside your luggage and used on your way home as a cache for souvenirs.
When folded, the bag measures 9.75 inches by 8 inches by 2.75 inches, and, when unfolded, it stretches to 18 inches by 11 inches by 11.5 inches.
Personalization is available for an extra fee: Each embroidered letter costs $15 to add, and up to three letters can be added in one of eight colors, a sample image of which will appear below the color selection to give you an idea of how the final product will look.
Available in Safari Green, Domino Black, Scuba Navy and Bebop Red, the Paravel Fold-Up Bag can be purchased on Paravel’s website starting at $65 for a basic bag with no personalization, and Paravel offers free shipping on orders more than $75.
For most of us, time in the car is “me time.” You can listen to that podcast you’re captivated by, blast that pop song and sing along at the top of your lungs or listen to the next chapter in that biography e-book you’re almost finished. A road trip only amplifies those opportunities. So, next time you’re traveling by road, take the wheel and take control. Opt for a rental car on your next vacation, rather than a rideshare, taxi or public transportation, and enjoy the open road on your own terms.
Bleisure — it’s a term we’re all familiar with these days. After all, millennials drive the rising trend, combining business and leisure trips regularly. Take a few days to decompress in a new destination after a hectic schedule of meetings and business.
