    Maybe you should have brought an empty suitcase just for presents and things, Elly? ;)

    Won’t that exceed over the weight limit for carry-on luggage on the flight back home?

    She can just wear the skirt and blouses on the plane, but the shoes might be a problem.

    When I travel I take a carry-on that’s virtually empty except for a book and a few necessary travel items. On the way home the same carry-on is full of all those little extras acquired between departures. Learned that trick early on.

    I took a lightly filled suitcase to tour England and Scotland and filled it with woolens for gifts and myself. Woolens aren’t heavy, either, but are hard to pack down.

    Make a quick run to UPS and ship it home.
    In recent years, thanks to the dishonorable things airlines and TSA frequently do, people ship their stuff to their destination and back via UPS, FedEx,etc. so they don’t have to worry about it being stolen, rifled, carelessly misdirected to another airport, etc. You know your clothes will actually be there when you get there, for example.

    Great idea!
    Too bad we can’t FedEx ourselves.

    Agreed. I took a trip to Ireland for eight days in the late 1980’s on a whim (long story) and carried everything in a backpack. Someone back home who wanted a woolen sweater from Donegal (my ancestral home) told me it would be easier to ship it from there. It was.

    On our trip to France, my wife bought a light jacket that she wore for a couple of days. Getting tired of carrying it around after that we decided to ship it home. That $24 jacket cost $104 to ship. Not a good deal.

    Lynn’s Notes:
    I often left things in hotel closets and I usually got them back. The only thing I knew would disappear was my little magnifying make-up mirror, which I suction-cupped to the window for maximum light. These are readily available at most pharmacies…but housekeepers, it seems, really like to take them home!

    The stuff for the kids and John are more important than your own clothes, Elly. Just leave ’em.

    Wasn’t one back then.

    As a housekeeper, I have never kept something a guest left, unless it was left as a tip. And leave stuff, they do! I’ve seen people who have put all their clothes in the dresser and forgot them. The most left item, of course, is phone chargers.
