I know this might sound a little weird… but I love being well-organised. Whether it's for my day, for work or for a holiday. I love it because I know that I’m prepared for the day, the week, the trip ahead.
A year ago I took a six-week holiday with my girlfriend to southern Europe. We travelled from Portugal through Spain, France, Italy, Turkey and finally, finished up in Greece - which is where my lineage is from.
Packing for our European trip was fun – No hint of sarcasm, really; who wouldn’t love packing for a Europe trip?
I get satisfaction out of order; everything in its place, easily accessible; organised… Ahhh.
My girlfriend on the other hand… chaos. Sharing a suitcase with that girl - just awful.
Thank the heavenly spirits above that I had The Noah, which was entirely mine; ordered beautifully and completely functional. It was the first experience I had had with the Australian-manufactured Noah Sling bag from Things Terrific, as this was well before the Corporate Commuter was an online reality.
For six weeks, my girlfriend and I travelled across southern Europe: 6 countries, 26 cities and towns. We had the time of our lives.
The Noah went everywhere I did. It was so useful and comfortable – even in the sweltering heat of Florence and Italy.
It easily carried the everyday travel essentials like:
- Our passports;
- Travel Wallet;
- Phone (Nexus 6P, so fairly large);
- Water bottle (always!);
- Sunglasses case/sunglasses; and
- A deck of cards for the long train
And before you ask, yes, it comfortably fit all the items above at the same time.
I was able to use a number of The Noah’s secure pouches that ensured I always knew where everything was and could access it easily and quickly.
When I was looking for a bag for the trip it had to meet certain criteria, which are now the basis of what I look for in all the products I sell on the Corporate Commuter.
It had to be:
- Able to comfortably accommodate new technology (large phones, tablets etc.) and innovations
- A stylish design; and most importantly
- Comfortable to use, with quick and easy access to its contents.
This last point was especially important to me. Spending time in search for items in my sling bag was not something I was going to be doing when I was going to be experiencing some of the most beautiful surroundings in the world. I was lucky enough to find this in The Noah.
As a result of my great experience with this product, I approached Things Terrific when starting The Corporate Commuter to get them on as the main supplier. To see more of the Things Terrific range click here.
This product is one of my favourites. It delivered everything I was looking for, and it will definitely be coming overseas with me again in 2017. Can’t wait!
