about how to prepare for a journey part 4
Imagine standing at the carousel, waiting for your luggage and you hear people snickering before you see it...!Ha, some poor dude didn' t close his suitcase properly and all his stuff got spilled out. Funny he's got the same shirt like you. And beach towel...wait. He's a her and she mysteriously shares your taste in...underwear????OMFG!!! WHAT HAPPENED???? Sorry to say it aloud, but your luggage ain' t placed like fabergé eggs in the hold/ cargo comp. And if you don't have a lock or one of those funny rainbow belts around your suitcase, it sometimes happens that you share your most intimate stuff with 14C and 11F.
To avoid a situation like this, I strongly advise to invest in one of those plastic underbed drawers. They usually fit in one half of a suitcase, are clear to check what' s inside and to protect your clothes from other stuff.
I even invested in more than one and I've got little separate bags for meds, beach stuff and kitchen stuff (cutlery, bottle opener, condiments, little sachets of lemon juice and tea bags for cold water). That way you can separately chose what you can check in or take woth you in your handluggage in case of a too heavy suitcase.
Please always chose a piece of handluggage that can be closed with a zipper, it' s a hassle to search for your stuff under other peoples' seats or in five different overhead bins after an enthusiastic take-off or landing!
Happy weekend, see you and go OUT!!
