Dot&Dot Slim Packing Cubes

If there’s one thing I would always love to do, it is to travel and explore the world. I would always take the chance to travel and I usually prefer to fly. That’s why I was so happy when I was given the chance to review this travel organizer because I would definitely use this product.

Number one on the list of essentials when I travel is to list everything that I need to bring and then depending on how long that list is, I will then decide what type of bag to use. Of course for long travels, a bigger luggage is a must especially when I travel out of the country. A lot of times I tend to stash last minute stuff that I happen to remember on the exact date of my flight and just put those things in between clothes or the sides or anywhere I can squeeze them in which is definitely easy to do but once you start to unpack or let’s say, you just need that one little thing and you can’t find it and you have to dig in and in doing so you just messed up all the contents of your bag. Traveling can be chaotic yes, but a little organizing once hurt. ๐Ÿ™‚ The slim packing cubes I received has a mesh design so this is different from the organizers I have used before. This product is very ideal because you don’t have to open each little bag or organizer if you’re looking for a specific item because with its mesh design, you can easily see the contents of each organizer.

This is how it looks. I used one for all my electronic stuff (charger, cords, portable hard disk etc). Another one for my undergarments..another one for my meds and I was able to sneak in 2 bottles of my favorite spreads! See, these are described as slim but you can put a LOT of items inside. I also noticed that even if you’re not able to pack each organizer to its full capacity, it somehow adjusts to any free luggage space. I still have one packing cube to fill! I think my shoes will definitely fit inside that one. ๐Ÿ™‚

The ones I received are color gray but they have a variety of colors to choose from depending on your personality. These cubes have a little handle at the top so you can also hang them or carry them. This product is also ideal organizer/bag for packed lunches, gym stuff organizer, car organizer or anything you can think of. ๐Ÿ™‚

I received one or more of the products mentioned above for free using Tomoson.com. Regardless, I only recommend products or services I use personally and believe will be good for my readers.

โ€œI beg young people to travel. If you donโ€™t have a passport, get one. Take a summer, get a backpack and go to Delhi, go to Saigon, go to Bangkok, go to Kenya. Have your mind blown, eat interesting food, dig some interesting people, have an adventure, be careful. Come back and youโ€™re going to see your country differently, youโ€™re going to see your president differently, no matter who it is. Music, culture, food, water. Your showers will become shorter. Youโ€™re going to get a sense of what globalization looks like. Itโ€™s not what Tom Friedman writes about, Iโ€™m sorry. Youโ€™re going to see that global climate change is very real. And that for some people, their day consists of walking twelve miles for four buckets of water. And so there are lessons that you canโ€™t get out of a book that are waiting for you at the other end of that flight. A lot of people โ€” Americans and Europeans โ€” come back and go, โ€œOhhhh.โ€ And the lightbulb goes on.โ€ – Henry Rollins

Lovely Treehouse!

I was just in Atlanta a month ago and had I known that this beautiful and almost mystical treehouse exists, I would have spent at least one night in this place! I saw this in my Airbnb app and this is now included in my bucket list.

Such a gorgeous sight! I will soon come up with my top Airbnb listings soon! ๐Ÿ™‚

Let’s Fly!

Riding a plane isn’t too bad. But for some, it is one of the main reasons why they can’t travel.

I was already an adult when I rode a plane for the first time. It was a domestic flight from Manila to Cebu and I wasn’t so scared. I was even excited because finally, my questions will finally have answers! Like..

Will I be dizzy?
Will I be able to walk inside the plane? I know flight attendants can but I have no idea how can they walk if you’re inside the plane? Like, are they floating or something?
Will I see birds?
Can I see a glimpse of outer space?
Does it fly steadily?
What if it collides with a bird or another plane?

These questions are the silliest ever but those are just a few that kept running through my head and I know at some point, some of you have these questions in mind the very first time you got on a plane.

But since then, I’ve been addicted to flying.

Nothing compares to the view. Especially when you are rising thousands of feet above and the airport becomes a size of pea, then people will start to look like ants, then you will see all the road and intersections ala Google Maps, then you will just see a piece of land connected to other lands, then it will be surrounded by every ocean and sea that you only see in books, then you’re up in the clouds!

You will then realize two opposing things: how big and small the world is. So small, that you cannot even find where you came from. So big, that as you go higher, you will come to a realization that everyone in this world are doing so many different things all at the same time. That is one part of traveling that I really love – getting to see the whole world from a cumulus cloud’s perspective.

If you haven’t flown yet, then you have no idea how beautiful our world is. ๐Ÿ™‚
