So I've had this idea (uh-oh
) for a bag to take with me when I travel. I always have the problem that I need a bag to take on a plane as hand luggage that will fit a reasonable amount of stuff in it, because I put in books, my glasses, camera, water bottle, sometimes a scarf etc etc, plus the usual handbag contents like wallet, phone etc. But when I get to the place I don't want to be lugging this biggish bag around when all I need is a little one that holds the normal contents of my handbag, but at the same time I don't want to have to carry two bags on the plane as hand luggage.
So I had the idea of a messenger type bag that holds all the extra stuff, but with a detatchable part that I can carry with me during the holiday so I don't need to lug around the whole big bag when I don't need it.
Does anyone have any suggestions for how I could do this, especially any ideas about what I can use to attach the detatchable bag? I thought about velcro, but that would look kinda ugly when they weren't attatched and would also get annoying if it was catching on everything.
I've done searches and looked through the boards here but didn't find any helpful ideas. (obviously everyone else is more disciplined than me about how much junk they take in their carry-on luggage
