Mr G has felt a bit left out on the review front recently, so rather than further sabotage Princess Alexa Barbie reviews with Ken’s bottom, he was excited to be asked to trial the Trunki Lotus F1 Team BoostApak on our trip to Corfu. Plenty of recipes, style and travel inspiration coming soon from gorgeous Corfu both here and on A Residence, we stayed at the Corfu Club which was paradise, we organised the trip through On the Beach after winning this competition on A Residence.
The BoostApak is a rucksack and car booster combined. It is perfect for holidays, but also just as handy for kids who often take lifts with other family members or friends.
On our trip to Corfu we were in and out of taxis and our hire cars several times. It was great to know we already had a car seat and that it also doubles up as a rucksack. Airlines vary, but Ryan Air allowed this plus a Trunki as hand luggage, so that was G’s luggage for the week sorted without any hold baggage!
Miss L took her new dolphin paddlepak, latest in the paddlepak range, and her Moshi Trunki, the waterproof dolphin paddlepak came in really handy, not just for the flight, but for beach trips. It also folds down so I would be tempted to pop Mr G’s paddlepak in his BoostAPak or Trunki next time!
There was no way round it, Mr G just knew how cool he was, the Lotus F1 Team logos and colour way of this Boostpak make it especially grown up and stylish.
He was happy to carry the bag for most of the journey, but we also found it sat nicely on top of our cases so was no hassle. It slipped neatly under his seat on the plane too.
Mr G is 5 and took great pleasure in flipping up the side rests and padded back rest, and converting the bag to his booster seat. It is an easy peasy manoeuvre. You can see the little red buttons in the picture below, just click them and the sides lift up, they then fold down under a flap on the rucksack when not in use.
There was plenty of room for all his journey essentials inside and the tough exterior means games consoles, iPads etc (and bears) are well protected.
We are big fans of Trunki, we tested the cases on our trip to Miami, and the paddlepaks to Camp Bestival.
The more I travel, the more I believe that having the right luggage makes a huge difference to the experience, especially when you travel as a family!
Next I need a pashmina, and an upgrade. Mr G did us proud on the style front at Corfu airport though look, 5 going on 15…
