Maybe it is a symbol of how we end this particular year? Time to let go, move on, open the doors to usher in the next? Or maybe this particular piece of equipment has just been a very trusted companion. After 12 years and countless trips, this Samsonite luggage has now made its last trip. Although local, but it has been on the final trip this weekend, carrying the stuff needed for a staycation.
Luggage does not have an easy job these days and every time I have used this bag, I have been amazed by how much torture this thing can take. Now, with parts chipped off, zippers torn and the inside worn out, it is time to put the next one to the task.
The only question is: when can we travel again?
