I am the person who never chooses fashion over functionality. I grew up believing that when traveling, I was supposed to look ridiculous – that fanny packs and sneakers were acceptable (they weren’t, by the way, at the time – I think they are now) and that I should always sacrifice looking cool in favor of practicality.
But why did it have to be one or the other? It’s high time there is finally a bag that I want to take with me on travels around the world. Thankfully, This is Ground, a tech accessories brand, is paving the way for the collision of beautiful Italian leather, sleek, minimal design, exploration and technology. The result is the masterfully-created answer to all my traveling desires: the Voyager Bag. It’s everything you could ever need in a bag – it’s gorgeous, it keeps the mess of our cords, laptops, iPads, and mobile devices organized and safe, it’s carry on sized, and the leather smells a little bit like heaven.
But wait, there’s more. Thanks to This is Ground’s partnership with Karma they have developed a way to make this bag carry it’s own wifi with you wherever you go. I’m still shocked when I am traveling and I come to a place without wifi. What year is it, where am I? Though I am a HUGE proponent of being present in a place and fully disconnecting, there are times when we just. need. wifi.
Hats off to This is Ground and all that they are doing for the wanderlusting-but-still-connected-to-the-rest-of-the-world girls like myself. We’ve been waiting for you.
