Backpack Search for a Trip to Europe

Who loves to carry and drag heavy suitcases while jumping on and off of planes? (Of course, no one) So, If you are planning for an upcoming trip to Europe like me and have to take different flights between countries than you don’t need suitcases that have the tendency to get lost in the blink of an eye. All you need is a backpack that carries your world while you travel the world.


If you plan to travel with a backpack, you need the best kind because essentially it’s going to carry all your worldly goods safely inside during that trip.

So, before jumping onto a plane, I searched weeks for that perfect match and for that, I had to go through the painstaking journey of online search.

So began my journey; the online world:

When I started, I had a clear picture of what I wanted. I wanted a backpack that was;



Had enough space for 10 days of clothing

Worth the price


Most of my search led me to the ones that were not durable, and their material was flimsy even in the photos and the ones that looked a bit decent were way too expensive. Then on Amazon, I found my perfect match. Even though it was a little over my budget but it offered everything I needed; from its good spacious size to amazing anti-theft feature.


Pacsafe Venturesafe X40:


On Amazon, I found this backpack and instantly loved everything about it except that it was electric blue (on the bright side, you can’t lose it in all the grays and blacks and also the black one was priced $100 more.) If you are looking for a backpack that will stand the test of times then look for one made out of durable material. The extra money will definitely be rewarded when your backpack would be still in one piece after years of use.


The best part was that it was too spacious, with measurement 21.7 x 11.9 x 8.7 it accommodated everything that I required for the trip. I was surprised when I got space left even after putting:


7 pair of leggings

10 shirts

2 pair of jeans

About 3 weeks of underwear

My electronics and toiletries

When they say anti-theft, they mean it:


The clip was a little tough to undo but then again it was new and it wasn’t that hard. On each compartment of the backpack, the zippers meet, and the two are looped through an extra piece and hooked, making it almost impossible for anyone to quickly open it while your head is turned.


Slash proof:


The material they have used is termed slashed proof as it stops the thieves from slashing it open. Another feature is the waterproof cover which you can be found at the bottom of the backpack. If you need to carry around a cell phone, camera or tablet, a waterproof pouch can help keep your possessions safe. Nothing is worse than finding soaked clothes and cell phone after a surprise downpour.


Happy shopper:


It’s not easy to find a product online which provides you with everything thing you need. I am usually hesitant when I have to make a purchase online. I don’t buy anything without doing thorough research. So this backpack sat in my Amazon shopping cart for about two and a half weeks, and after looking everywhere I still came back to purchase it. So far I have been very happy with my decision to buy it and if you don’t want to waste your time looking for backpacks then I suggest you click on the link 🙂

About Us At NTT

  1. Hey everyone, and welcome to Nerds That Travel where I will be posting about my trips as well as any reliable travel gear/nerdy gear that I come across. I would love to hear of everyone’s travel stories!

My Personal Travel Experience

I am just starting out on what I hope will be many years of travels! I first traveled to Costa Rica in my teenage years, zip lining over rivers, riding horses and enjoying hot springs and mud baths. My family and I stayed in a private villa at a very nice resort in Tamarindo, where we witnessed a wedding on the beach.

In 2016 I visited the Blue Hole in Jamaica where I got to swing into electric blue pools and climb down waterfalls (which was thrilling!). Shortly afterwards I went to two beaches in Mexico. Costa Maya and Cozumel were both beyond beauty. White sand and perfectly clear blue water. Perfect for relaxation.

Last year I made a leap and decided to Visit the UK alone! I spent two weeks making my way around England and Scotland and it was a great experience. I booked a hiking tour in Scotland and a sightseeing tour in England. History is another topic that holds my attention like no other so naturally a historic tour from London to Edinburgh was a good time. Scotland has some of the most beautiful scenery in the world and the best way to see it is with an awesome hike. There’s a certain magic. Not to sound to cheesy.

The very next trip in planning will take my self and a few friends into the rest of Europe where we will not only visit London, but Paris and Venice! we might even try to fit Barcelona in there somewhere.

I am also a huge Nerd deep down. So any Marvel, LotR, Harry Potter, Game of Thrones, and any historical dramas, make me very happy. I plan to visit a few famous movie and TV show places. In Scotland, I visited Doune castle which was used in the filming of a couple of my favorite shows. It was featured as the keep at Winterfell in Game of thrones and as Castle Leoch in Outlander.


Travel Community

I myself don’t like guessing which gear is reliable or which places actually look like the pictures that they post and I plan to document everything and give the best advice that I can find. I will be adding new content regularly and in the meantime would love to meet other nerds out there and hear their stories.


My Goal

My Goal is to not only find good travel gear and information, but to also mark some of the nerdiest activities to be found in each city that I visit. And meet fellow traveling nerds along the way!

If you ever need a hand or have any questions, feel free to leave them below and I will be more than happy to help you out.

All the best,
