Pros and Cons: Backpacks and Trolleys
There will always be two sides to every story.
Okay, fine. I totally made that up to have a good sounding opening line. Anyway...
It's the season of vacations and I simply can't help but notice how certain people are different when it comes to the luggage that they prefer to carry. Some people like to bring backpacks for long journeys while others prefer large trolleys. Some like to bring small trolleys and a hand carry for short trips while others pack it all on their backpacks.
I'm traveling soon too and I'm trying to weigh in which the best luggage to bring is. So with that, I'm sharing with you our pros and cons in bringing backpacks or trolleys.
|Backpack||Mobile, easy to bring to whatever terrain||Can hurt your back if it's too heavy|
|Trolley||Easy to pull around even if it's heavy||Except for when you're passing through uneven terrains|
|Backpack||Easy to pack things into||Difficult to get stuff if you somehow managed to pack wrong|
|Trolley||Easy to pack things into||Can be difficult to close if you somehow ended up with more stuff going home|
|Backpack||Can serve as your pillow while waiting to board||You end up with crumpled clothes cause you laid on it for 2 hours|
|Trolley||Can serve as your foot rest while waiting to board||But don't do that. Totally. Just don't.|
On Surprising Uses
|Backpack||Backpackers are a thing so you'd totally meet friends cause of it||Your new found friend mistook your backpack as hers cause you had matching ones|
|Trolley||It naturally looks heavy so someone helped you pull it out of the conveyer||There's no such thing as a trolley-ers|
On Judgy People's Judgments
|Backpack||Carriers of one has the reputation of being adventurers and frequent pro-travelers||Somehow also has the reputation of being seldom showerers (I mean, this backpack surely has a towel in it. I mean, c'mon.)|
|Trolley||Makes you look posh and sophisticated. Pretty much very business-y like you know what you're doing||Except your destination had super unever terrain and now you're bouncing up and down with your trolley as you struggle to cross the cobblestone pathway|
|Backpack||All your things are nice and snug inside your bag||It can be a struggle when you have to put down and carry your bag again and again #backworkout|
|Trolley||Everything's nicely fit in your bag||But your luggage is overweight. So you have to open it for all the world to see so you can remove some stuff|
On Things You Can Pack
|Backpack||It carries everything you need!||It carries everything you want too!|
|Trolley||It carries everything you want to bring!||It carries everything you don't need too!|
After this list, I think I'm still for backpacks. But hey, mind you. I shower.
Also, backpack + trolley. Isn't that a thing?
