Is the day bag you take on the airplane the same bag that you carry when sightseeing? I’m still working towards packing lighter as part of our next trip will be just me and my 2 daughters. I love my day bag for the plane. It carries food, jacket, eye cover, electronics, water bottle, documents, etc. It fits under the seat so that everything I need is accessible. But it’s still too much bag too carry around when sightseeing.
For sightseeing Rick’s Civita Day Pack is perfect (chapstick, sunblock, water bottle, bandaids). I know Rick says he only uses the Civita Day Pack but that just won’t work for me on the plane. It doesn’t work very well with the food, and especially the iPad, etc.
I’m trying to figure out how other people manage. Do you take 2 different day packs—1 for the plane and 1 for sightseeing? Or do you have that 1 perfect bag for both?
