Around the world sounds so neat, but how do they deal with luggage? I get so frustrated losing luggage on one trip, I can’t imagine around the world!! I found if you put obnoxious (and funny) luggage tags on, they tend to not get picked up by other travelers thinking your bag is theirs…my favs below for bright colors and funny sayings.

I’ve found buying luggage that is not black helps, too. Love the new purples and red shades they have out now, especially from some of the durable brands.



That family isn’t so “crazy”. I’ll tell you what crazy is, try sailing around the world in a sailboat with 2 kids for 2-3 year minimum outing! Now that would be a good sequel for this family.
