Travel Like Francis Ford Coppola

We spotted a travel-focused profile of Godfather director (and North Beach neighbor) Francis Ford Coppola last week in the Wall Street Journal. Nestled among stories about his favorite souvenir and first roadtrip is a mention of his favorite luggage, a Ghurka Cavalier Duffel. “I won’t give my bag up,” he told the WSJ. “My wife is always saying, ‘Well, why don’t you get a new rolling bag?’ But I love this one.” See the full profile here.
