Osprey Farpoint 40 review – find out why this is my favourite backpack for travelling, weekends away and city breaks. My new forever rucksack.
I have a thing about luggage. From carry-on to hold luggage from backpacks and wheeled duffels to hard-shell suitcases and day packs. In my cupboard I have packs within, wheelie bags within duffels within suitcases – the luggage version of Russian dolls. I’ve tried them all. But now that I’ve found the perfect backpack in the Osprey Farpoint I’ll be getting rid of a pile of old rucksacks and sticking to this one.
There are so many good reasons for travelling with just carry-on luggage. No worries about your luggage not turning up with you at your destination. Avoid ridiculous charges for checking-in hold luggage. No waiting at the carousel when you’d rather be out of the airport like a rocket itching to explore.
But which carry-on luggage is the best one for you? If you’re like me then you’re constantly looking out for the perfect carry-on luggage and I’ve tried loads over the years. Here’s what I think about the CabinZero 44L carry-on backpack.
In case you hadn’t noticed I’m an outdoorsy type. I love going for long walks by the sea or in the Sussex countryside. I’m also into my coffee so I was intrigued when I heard about the Wacaco Minipresso Portable Espresso Machine. A portable coffee maker so you can enjoy fresh Espresso on the go wherever you happen to be? Sounds just like my cup of, err, coffee.
Imagine, a coffee fix on the beach, at the top of a mountain or in the middle of nowhere. Anywhere in fact. Read on for the chance to win a Wacaco travel coffee maker for yourself in partnership with Steamer Trading.

On the road in Iceland
I love Iceland! I’ve visited this amazing country twice; in February and August. Two different seasons with totally different weather conditions. Working out what to pack for Iceland needed some some serious thought as the weather is so unpredictable. Here’s what I’ve learned on my visits to this stunning country about what to wear in Iceland whatever time of year you visit – summer or winter. (more…)
