  1. A Great Bag For Short Trips

    July 10, 2010 by barbara

    My friend, an insurance agent whom I bought my term life insurance from visited me a couple of days ago to show us some of her holiday photos.  She and her husband went to Singapore recently to visit the newly opened Universal Studios.  They were there for about a week and thoroughly enjoyed their trip.  My friend did a lot of shopping there too.  She told me that she did not take a lot of clothes with her because she wanted to shop in Singapore.   My friend even recommended that I buy the Reisentel Expandable Travel Bag from   The Reisentel bag is cute and functional.  It is an ideal bag for short trips.  You can carry the bag or strap it on the shoulder.   It is available in plain black, plain red or floral as shown in the picture below.  I think I am going to buy it since we often travel to local destinations.
