A travel accessory every Mom should have…


The KIVA Keychain backpack.
My older son is a packrat and a cool stuff, gadget geek. He found this in a local store and just loved the fact that a backpack-sized bag folded up so small.
I paid this particular purchase no attention until I was packing for our trip to Italy. Since we were backpacking, it seemed that it would be useful as a daypack.
Well, was that an understatement. We used it every day. For general daypack use (wallets, keys, camera, etc), for groceries, for loaning to my sister-in-law who had forgotten to bring a daypack and wanted to take her kids to Pisa for the day. General all-purpose, fit-in-your-pocket, glad-I-brought-it workhorse of a little bag.
The bag doesn’t have any padding on the straps and is very light, so I wouldn’t want to try to overfill it.
Especially useful for backpackers who need something a little smaller and lighter to use as a daypack.
Available at a long list of online retailers. Or check out the KIVA website to find a physical store nearest you.

About wandermom

". . .life is short and the world is wide" - Simon Raven I'm not sure I've ever consciously planned a trip based on this sentiment, but it definitely influences my subconscious! I've been traveling as frequently and widely as possible since I finished school. And I love it. I love the research, the planning, the fervent packing and the curiosity of exploring somewhere I've never been before. My husband & I are both Irish - as in born-in-Ireland. But we live in Seattle. We have two boys: wild, boisterous, regular boys. So, since becoming a Mom, I've been a WanderMom. Given our slightly-unusual family situation, routine "visits-to-Grandma" are international trips requiring passports, 10hr-flights and (oh joy!) airport transfers. I have rants, raves and opinions about how, where & why to travel with kids (start them as young as you can, I say!). I hope to learn even more by researching topics which other wandermoms may be interested in reading about on this blog. Passports, pacifiers, diapers and gameboys at the ready - off we go!
