Weekend Carry On

Here’s What to Pack in Your Carry On This Weekend

We know that women over 50 are busier than ever. You’re starting new businesses, and exploring the world, and having a quick list of weekend travel essentials is imperative!

Let’s start with the Carry-On Bag!

Tumi Voyageur Jena Convertible Backpack

Tumi Voyageur Jena Convertible Backpack, $325

One reviewer says it all about why we selected this bag:

“Great bag for travel: used it on a Paris trip and it is so versatile: My very favorite way to use it is NOT shown: I clipped the straps midway. Stowed things I didn’t need much in the large inner pocket. (And my passport in the zippered part of the inner pocket. The front pocket carried my wallet, and metro pass. The little tab on that front zipper has a security buckle. And the top half of the bag folded over the zipper front- so I was super secure with a not-too-large bag to carry cross body around the museums. After shopping, I put things in the center pouch and if it got too full, I moved the straps to use as a tote, a back pack and a sling- however I wanted. Very easy to adjust. One more super high class feature: the part on the back that slips over your roller handles? When you aren’t using it like that, there’s a zipper to close the bottom, and then it becomes the perfect slip pocket for your map and travel guide. What a nice extra!”
