Recently my husband and I traveled to England and Wales. I brought my Vera Bradley Viva La Vera Weekender as my carry-on and really loved this bag for its generous pockets and ease of carrying. It kept all my belongings well organized and nicely accessible; with the added plus of being made with cheery patterned, soft but thick quilted fabric reminding me of the comforts of home (think quilted-comforter). I’m also very interested in the Grand Traveler in Folkloric for a short domestic getaway. Other great prints include the Watercolors, Happy Snails, Mocha Rouge, Sittin in a Tree, Deco Daisy, and retired Peacock (which can still be found on e.g. eBay and perhaps other places if you looked hard enough).
