So, on the way home, at one of my transfer stops, when they take the luggage out of the hold of the bus and kind of throw it on the blacktop, evidently my sorry suitcase had burst at the seams, and was lying on it's side with my belongings sticking out for the world to see?!? When I got off the bus, and saw the suitcase, I had to laugh because it looked so funny with articles of clothing hanging out....until I realized that this was MY suitcase, then the laughing stopped and I was mortified!
Luckily, I had packed a bungee cord in the suitcase, and stuffed my things back into my broken and battered suitcase and wrapped the bungee cord around it to prevent it from happening again! Then I rolled it to the next bus that I needed to be on, and continued on my journey. But how embarressing!!
So, to prevent that from happening ever again, I am now shopping for new Luggage and I have found some exquisite pieces that I may just have to buy before my next trip.
I also was looking at the Tumi luggage and the Briggs and Riley luggage collections, and they have some really nice pieces in them too. But I am really partial to the Hartmann red pieces, and think those are the ones I need to purchase before my next trip.
The good news is that most of the luggage is on sale now, making it the best time to buy!
Till Next Time,
