Agio, the business bags designed to let you explore every corner of a city
It’s already July. The holidays are close enough that you can smell the sea and sand, but there’s still lots to finish off at work. The answer? You’ll just have to get your nose down. But in the meantime, the hot summer days make you dream of getting away …
Well, what if a business trip could become the excuse for a weekend getaway in a European capital?
Work is okay, after all, but having fun is mandatory! And now, switching from one to the other just takes a moment: that’s why we came up with the Agio range.
Have a last-minute flight to catch? Luckily for you, with the Agio Pilot trolley bag in tow, you don’t even need to check-in! Just print off your boarding card and you’re away – its dimensions meet the cabin bag requirements of most airlines.
But it will still hold everything you need for a weekend full of work and play: the main compartment is equipped with straps to hold your clothes, while a second compartment has been designed to protect your laptop, while keeping your tablet or iPad in reach at all times too, as well as your work documents. There are also two pockets for accessories and an easy-access external pocket with organised panel.
And if this is not enough space for you, you can always hook Agio 15 to your trolley bag. It’s the business bag which knows how to have fun, too! Designed to transport all types of notebooks, ultrabooks and MacBooks up to 15 inches in convenience and style, it features a special compartment with Anti-Shock System padding to protect them from knocks. With a tough interior, it is stylish on the outside too, thanks to the original design which combines smooth technical fabric with a base in soft-touch material. In short, there’s little danger of you going unnoticed.
What’s more, Agio 15 also offers a dedicated iPad and tablet pocket and a secure compartment for your smartphone, as well as plenty of space for your documents, and even a change of clothes, ensuring you always look your best.
And when Friday evening rolls around and the meetings are finally over, you can start enjoying the city. If you feel like getting a little shopping in, the Agio collection includes a handy tote bag. Agio Shopper is a bag with a slim, handy and elegant design which shares the same lines and elegant materials of its big brother. Although it is more compact, the Agio Shopper tote bag can also hold a notebook up to 15”, and allows you to take a stroll through the city with your tablet, iPad and smartphone always in reach.
This means your digital ecosystem is always close at hand even when you are relaxing on holiday, to ensure you don’t miss the latest post from your favourite blog, help you keep in touch with friends and even get original tips and recommendations on the city you are exploring. Here are some examples.
Do you often find yourself in London for work? You do? The British capital may be a world centre of finance, but it is also a city which hides many secret places to discover, such as Wilton’s Music Hall or the seven noses (yes, noses!) of Soho. Buzzfeed has gathered some of the most interesting together in this surprising tour of the streets of London.
Have some meetings with your new clients in Paris? Save yourself a little time for some “healthy shopping”, far from the crowds of tourists on the Champs Elysées or in the Galeries Lafayette. Treat yourself to something more unusual, such as discovering the passages couverts, the late 19th-century shopping galleries where you can still breathe in a refined fin-de-siècle atmosphere. Tell A Tale Blog takes us on a discovery of them.

In any event, when you only have a weekend to explore a new city, the same dilemma always crops up – whether to plan out your visit and make the most of every moment, but end up feeling like a tourist, or else “waste time” hanging out in the places which are most popular with the people who actually live there. If you prefer the second option, the next time you visit Madrid take a leaf from the locals’ book – drink a beer at Bar Palentino or have a bite to eat from the market stalls at Mercado San Anton. Barcelonablonde offers these tips and more to experience the Spanish capital like a local.
