“You’re Carrying Too Much Luggage…”


One of my greatest treats in life is traveling.  I love the adventure of getting on a plane, taking a road trip, and the whole experience of seeing a new place and all it has to offer.  For years I had a problem with packing…  I always seemed to over pack which in so many ways made the trip a little frustrating…   When over packing you have to go through baggage claim, tip the shuttle driver for lifting all the heavy luggage, unpack all the suitcases in the hotel, repack them to go back home, and once making it home you have to unpack them all over again…  It’s like, “Eeeesh, I’m tired just thinking about it”…
