Hi guys. Planning to do a European trip this summer (haven't narrowed it down yet).
I currently have a regular suitcase, but I am considering buying a backpack instead (after lugging the suitcase up several flights of stairs on my previous trips to Paris and Venice, not to mention over a load of bridges in Venice!!!) I am thinking a backpack that distributes the weight over my shoulders may be a more suitable option for me.
Thing is, I haven't a clue where to start looking in relation to backpacks. I don't know anything about them. So I am here to ask my fellow travellers for advice. Do any of you have a recommended brand/pack etc. Tips and tricks when purchasing and packing?
I live in Ireland if it helps when recommending stores/websites to purchase off of
