Can you believe it? Only two more weeks to go... Zakynthos here I come! That also means high time to start packing my suitcase! Which brings me to my subject for today.
A portable often rectangular case with a handle and a  lid, used for carrying clothes and other personal possessions while traveling. Sounds familiar? ;-)
I've had many suitcases in my life. Mainly for traveling between my student apartment in Groningen, my parents house on the weekends and my boyfriends house for date nights. But those suitcases were never quite as lovely as this beautiful pink suitcase that I got from my parents for my birthday in December. I know, quite a long time ago but I haven't had an occasion to get it out from our store room and into the sunlight.
Until now...
Let's just go...
Don't worry if these photographs make you think I'm gonna pack light for a change. I'm not sick. I'm still me. Because even though it may not look like it now, I'm gonna stuff this suitcase full! Ever seen a photo or video of a person who has to sit on his or her knees on top of the luggage to get the zipper or clips to close? Yep, that's me! I'm also the girl who's googling "How to fit more stuff in your suitcase". I'm such a goof, haha.
My new four-wheel drive a.k.a. 'a Spinner'
In 14 days I'm hopping on a plane to Zakynthos. All by myself. With this pink suitcase by my side. Since I'm going away for quite some time I'm gonna have to bring quite a few things with me. It's not just clothes, it's medicines, it's electronics, it's good pairs of shoes (yes plural). All of that needs a safe way to be transported to Greece and back home when the time comes. This suitcase is not only pink (what's not to love?) but also really big and sturdy. All and all I think this one is really worth sharing with my dear readers since the best season for traveling is just around the corner!
On travel days we wear pink!
A suitcase in my favorite color. Call it pink, rose gold, mauve... it's a pretty suitcase that's what it is! Besides the fact that I absolutely adore this color, it's also very convenient to have one in a color that stands out from the crowd. Let's face it: most suitcases and trolleys are Plain Janes with their black, grey or blue exterior. I don't have to worry about finding mine on the conveyor belt!
By now you can guess what my fave color is...
The sizing of this one is also pretty decent: it has room for up to 113 L, weighs 4,8 kg and is 76,5 x 52,5 x 31 (+5) cm. The +5 cm is because you can actually make it bigger with one simple move. Handy for when you bought all kinds of nice souvenirs and you want to bring them back home to your friends and family but you don't want to leave any of your own stuff behind. By opening the zipper you recreate more space. Winning!
