Living out of a suitcase.

Thank you thank you thank you Atlantic Luggage. It honestly seems like I have been living out of my suitcase for the last 8 months.

True Story: Back in November my family took a fabulous week long cruise. Sure I was doped up on Dramamine for 8 days, but it was still amazing! 

When it was time to depart, we gathered our luggage, which was 10 times heavier than when we began and started to leave the ship.

My husband and I were wheeling the two bigger suitcases through the massive port parking lot and the wheels on his bag started coming off, like literally crumbling beneath the bag. 

It was the strangest thing ever. 

I was laughing so hard. 

Well then, mine started to do the same thing. It’s like someone put wheel eating acid on them and they were just disappearing. 

The fact that the suitcases were from 2 different manufactures and this was happening to both at the same time just baffled us!

Since my cruise in November, I have been to Iowa, Nebraska, Seattle, Atlanta, Ohio, Amelia Island and Chicago all with the same white trash bags. 

Soooo, I bow down to Atlantic Luggage for sending me their lovely Atlantic Ultra Lite 22” Carry-On Upright. 

I think one of the things I loved the most is that the empty bag was only 6.5 pounds. My other bags were probably 10!

It has lots and lots of space. I had room to spare, even with my 1,000 pairs of shoes.

I just love the pretty blue color.

I am also digging the Seahoarse Logo. You know why? The male Seahorse is the one that carries the babies!

    Seriously? You were all flip saying to us “what? you don’t travel with a crockpot?” Of course we don’t goober! You gonna tell us what you were doing with that? I guessing you were melting wax in your hotel room so you could do a full body DIY waxing since you didn’t have time before you left for the trip! There I said it….aren’t you sorry now you didn’t tell us?….lol

    Geez, you travel with a mini crock pot????! What in God’s name are you making with it? Travel to me = no cooking. At all. Ever.
    And I know you will promise not to enter me in a lego vacation. Much as my kids loved lego….those days are over.

    Look at those shoes–mostly sandals and flipflops! Really, I’ve never laughed so hard after reading a blog. Seriously, I think living out of a suitcase, even for an extended time, is good fun. I read an article about some retirees who made living out of a suitcase their retirement dream. They tired of the rat race and now they shmooze all over Europe.
