Okay. I'm going on a fairly long trip this summer, to visit a friend in the States. It'll be the first time I travel completely alone, and long-haul to boot.:cry: Sorry - I'm a softie. Anyway, in an effort to make the travelling part less , I'm thinking about throwing some money away on a courier, to use as a carry-on. So for anyone who has one, I have some questions. Okay, one majore question - how does it look when carried as an everyday bag? Is it huge and ungainly, or does it depend how much stuff is in it? If I spend that much on a bag, I'd better be able to use it more than once. Also, where can I get one? Harvey Nic's in Leeds only has it in Damask, which I don't want cos its a dirt-magnet. And nowhere else locally sells them. So all the Brit b-bag lovers can help me here - have you seen any? I'm really on the fence about this, so any advice y'all can give me would be really appreciated. Thanks!
