Traveling is always an exciting adventure, and with summer on it’s way you may have more travel plans than usual, especially if you have little ones on summer holiday from school. I don’t think I’ve ever traveled and not forgotten something, but making a list of must haves is a great way to be organized and fully prepared for your time away from home.

Another great way to be holiday or travel ready is by having a great suitcase or set of luggage. One of the perks of having a colourful suitcase or luggage set, is that when you fly your suitcase will be easy to spot when it comes off the plane and onto the luggage carousel. I realized this last summer after a family trip to Mexico when we stood waiting for our luggage at 2 am. There we were, all of us exhausted, trying to find our black suitcase among a sea of other black suitcases.

Traveling is always an exciting time and having the right luggage can make your trip a little less stressful. I know next time I travel I’ll be investing in luggage that’s colourful, mainly for the reason that I won’t have to try to find my suitcase among a crowd of other black bags.
