Millennial women are beginning to travel the world solo in record-setting numbers, and they’re doing it in style. Though these intrepid female travelers are setting sail by themselves, they do require the perfect travel companion—in the form of a handbag.

This one handbag, from Lancaster Paris, fits the bill. Why? At £80 (or $108), the chic mini bucket bag offers genuine calfskin craftsmanship at an affordable price point. The mini bucket is roomy enough for you to fit your essentials but lightweight for someone with your carefree wanderlust.

The Lancaster mini bucket, available online at Forzieri, a designer emporium site based in the U.K., comes in a variety of colors (available for worldwide shipping). Below, find your favorite travel destination and the Lancaster mini bucket to rock while you’re exploring the city streets, and enjoying the local flavor of each cosmopolitan mecca, perfect handbag in tow.
