#IamUrbanBrave to Wander and Cross Timezones
A few years ago, I told myself that I would travel and see the world. It happened and it is happening. It is as if the universe conspired with the people around me and the opportunities that landed on me.
I got to cross seas, countries and time zones. I always knew #IamUrbanBrave to take on any travel adventure including embracing new weather and cultural differences.
Taking you back to some four years ago. We traveled more than 19 hours from Manila to Toronto to understand a process that we need to transfer to Manila Delivery Center. We were young, excited, carefree and able. We needed to abide with corporate rules but we still know how to express our styles. En route and in the office, we needed to look modern dapper.
Joining me in the journey of thousand miles, tens of process documents and series of flow charts were two luggage, a back pack and a pacsafe bag I used as a hand carried bag (unfortunately, I didn't have an #ootd with it! We didn't care much about Instagram!)
It is good to be street smart but it is way better to be equipped with gadgets and gears that would help you travel smartly. Thankfully, I have discovered Urbanize which carries different bags for our daily commute and travels.
I love Pacsafe because it gives me security and peace of mind - especially for a commuter and traveler that I am. I am secured that my gadgets, money, credit card and travel documents are secured especially when running around airports and bumping into different travelers. The better news, Pacsafe Bags now come in different styles and colors - there's something for a chic in me.
Aside from Pacsafe, here are the other brands I love from Urbanize:
Hydrapak - because I am a sucker for water and it is always good to stay hydrated when traveling. It is spill-proof, flexible and economical as it saves you a few bucks from buying bottled water. We went to different attractions and even if the weather was cold, I still needed to drink a lot of water.
Hellolulu Laptop Bags - it is always nice and dapper to carry your laptop in a cute bag. I love the stylish Hellolulu Laptop Bags which is padded to protect the machine (the most important thing!). The kind of laptop bag that doesn't spell work but fun.
ArtiArt Mug - Tim Horton's has become our favorite and savior when you have to juggle client meetings, training, exams, certification, global calls and fun times. ArtiArt Suction Mug is perfect for those times when you need spill-proof mug to go with you in different meeting rooms.
Elecom Waterproof Mobile Case - adventure doesn't end where sea meets the land, it is where everything starts. We got to see the beautiful Niagara Falls and fell in love with it. A water-proof mobile case is a must for capturing special moments like this especially when you are in one of the most beautiful places in the world. The Canada side is much more beautiful than US side (they say). We were lucky.
These are just some of the cool, stylish and functional products that you can find from the lifestyle brand Urbanize. They truly are, innovative gadgets that help solve simple life stresses which enable us to focus on more important things - like living and making memories.
Urbanize help us travel smartly and always be an urban brave traveler.
