I rarely travel – especially by plane. I decided years ago to have pets rather than be a world traveler.

Well I really forgot how to pack for a vacation. I packed my extra-large Mountain Equipment Co-op duffle bag full of clothes. I could barely lift it, let alone drag it through the airport. I brought 3 pairs of shoes and I only ever wore the pair I went out there in. I had – easily – two times the amount of clothes required. I didn’t touch at least half of them. I forgot when you are on vacation, you are allowed to recycle clothes!

Poor Jeff just about killed himself hauling my stuffed bag around the airport when neither of us could find a toonie for the luggage cart.
