At the end of July I will be traveling to visit family in New Brunswick. I can’t wait to go explore a new province and see family and the animals. I can’t wait to go and hopefully get over my newfound fear of flying a bit. There are a few things that I will be needing though.
I will be traveling with only a carry on since a have a connecting flight and plan to use my layover to quickly see my grandparents. Girl ain’t got time for waiting on luggage!
I’ve been browsing stores and Amazon for some new carry on bags and travel cubes. There are so many options! It is quite hard to pick which one will work out best but it is so fun browsing through so many items.
There are a few that I have narrowed it down to and thought I would share with you, because you never know when you may need some of these items!
The first are the packing cubes I mentioned up above. The benefit of packing cubes is you can sort items out and pack them in the individual cubes so you don’t need to go digging around your bag searching since you know which cube the item is in! They are also easy to pack and stuff around in your bag.
These are the packing cubes that I am lusting over!

Next up is The Canon EOS Rebel T5 18MP DSLR Camera With 18-55mm Lens Kit. I LOVE this camera! I spend so much time browsing good cameras that I think would help me shoot better travel photographs, maybe even short videos. I just take pictures on my iPhone, so I wouldn’t know where to start with a good camera, but I think this one would be good to start.
I really want an Osprey bag. Like, REALLY want. Every review I read is positive, and they seem like a great company with really good customer service and repairs. The thing is though, they are pretty expensive. I know one day I will get an Osprey bag, but for now I shouldn’t spend money on one, no matter how tempting one is.
So I’ve been browsing for another carry on bag that is good enough for now. I’ve found two that stand out to me.
Air Canada 20″ Spinner Expandable Suitcase Grey
This bag is obviously Canada approved as it is a Air Canada product. It is within the size requirements and has a few pockets. The price is pretty spot on as well, at $69.99.
Samsonite Fiero 20-Inch Expandable Carry-on Spinner Suitcase, Blue, International Carry-on
I really like this bag! It fits the size requirements, is a gorgeous color, and is Samsonite brand, so we KNOW it’s good. The price is a bit scary at $129.99, but to be honest, since it is Samsonite brand I thought it would be much more expensive.
Look at this 2 piece make up bag! Not only is it stylish, but it has a few different compartments to pack all of your toiletries in, so you don’t need to worry about leaving anything behind. I can already imagine all the different items I could pack in here.
There are so many travel carry on items that I want and need for not only this trip that I’ll be taking, but all of my future trips that I don’t have planned yet, but will one day!
Now I just need to save up the money and narrow what I truly need down 🙂
I can’t wait to take this trip!
