Friday Photo's: Packing on my mind


After all of these years of being a flight attendant I still dislike packing. And it seems to be more challenging while non-revving and especially when traveling with a child. I don't like checking my bags when flying standby since I don't want to be left at the airport waving goodbye to my luggage if I get bumped. So I end up packing my entire vacation into my teenie weenie Flight Attendant roller bag.

In an attempt to inspire my packing efforts in the near future(Yes, I'm still planning on going to Hawaii next week) I've found some beautiful vintage suitcases on Flickr.

Imagine how fun packing would be if you had a red & white polka dot suitcase (a little bigger of course).

Beautiful vintage suitcases!

I'm with you when it comes to checking bags. My daughter and I just spent six days in New Orleans and we traveled with carry on only. It allowed us to hop on an earlier flight on our last leg from LAX to SFO.

You know what I would like? Some professional packing tips from a pro like you!

Dutchbaby...I'll put some packing tips together just for you. ;)

The Flying Pinto... I also check bags if the flight looks good. But our Hawaii flights are full. Dang!

Gramyflys... I love the artwork there! That's the best I've seen.

Oh, looove the bags!

I have to admit, I never check... well unless you count the time I was coming home from China and my friend and I had bought so much stuff that we had to buy an extra suitcase... and check it.

Very nice post! :)
