Excessive baggage?

Postby spideyGirl » Thu Aug 09, 2012 7:25 pm

Going away soon and we seem to be rare amongst our friends for taking far too much luggage so was just wondering what others take?

We take a case each, but then people with kids seem to need way more stuff.

I'm at the stage where a lot of my stuff is already in Tucson. So only one case for me.

I always take as much as the weight limit, which is 23kg (at least at KLM)... it's really hard you know! And annoying when you have 24 kg and really have NO IDEA what else you should leave behind :P But I fit it all in one suitcase. Plus hand luggage, which is a backpack and a little suitcase :P
But that's for a whole month, right? ;)
Listen.

Wow mC! You do good! :lol:

I think its because we don't get out much so we like to dress up a bit :D We have week 1 and week 2 outfits. Week 1 whilst the diet effects of the last month are still bearing fruit and week 2 for when the relaxing, good eating effects kicks in :lol:

I hang stuff in my wardrobe on wheels. ;) Caravans are great. Got a fridge and room for booze too. ;)

I never go anywhere and if I did it certainly wouldn't be on a "sun" holiday - red hair, pale skin, burn under a 60 watt bulb. But if I did I don't see how anyone could need more than would fit in one suitcase.

I don't take much at all. Holidays arent for bringing all your sh*t with you. They're for getting away from it.

Don't forget your towel.
