This could be obvious to some but I think it is a good idea to keep in mind when packing a suitcase or suitcases for those traveling in pairs or more and with a few cases coming along with them.
Given that it is entirely possible that your luggage could go astray during your journey, and it often does, it’s probably a good idea to pack a few things of your own in your companion’s luggage. Luggage can go missing occasionally. It often does when traveling on multiple airlines or carriers that are not in some sort of alliance or agreement of cooperation.
You could put some underwear/panties, shirt, pants, toiletries, shoes and socks in each others’ bags. If one of your bags goes walkabouts, then at least you have something to change into on arrival. That’s assuming all the bags don’t go missing!
I once spent 2 days in terrible tacky clothes that barely fit me when I was young after my bag didn’t make it with me to my destination. I was traveling alone at the time so there wasn’t much I could have done apart from taking some things with me in my carry-on.
Hope your bag makes it with you on arrival!

We’ve just had a little boy about 4 months ago. Cute little guy with his very own room and everything. We have 2 cars. One is a big fat truck which is great and the other car is a VW Citigolf, the Golf V 1 – yes they still make them here. For some of you, you might remember it as the Rabbit.
Anyway, we’ve always taken the little guy around in his car sear in the truck without any hassles. The truck had to go in for a service a few days ago so I was left with the VW for the day and had to go out quickly with the little guy in toe. Well to my surprise, I found out that the seat belts in the VW are too short to strap his seat in. Now what kind of car company manufactures a low end car, and therefore more affordable for younger people who are more likely to have newborns, that cannot have a baby seat strapped in properly? Really? Are you guys that useless in Development that you hadn’t thought of the length of the belt or were you too busy chopping 2 feet off the strap to boost your profits only to put my son’s life in jeopardy???
Come on VW, you’re German, you can do better than that! What’s happened to your reputation as German engineers???!!!

We just had our son. He’s a real cutie but you can tell he’s gonna be a hand full.
His arrival has raised several questions for us now when traveling. Where do we go? What should we do? What do we take with us? How long can we go for? Will the destination be good for him? Will they even care?
So if you have any tips for traveling with a baby, please add them. I’ll start off with a few below:
1. Take plenty of food if not breastfed.
2. Take enough diapers to cover for a few days.
3. Don’t forget the bottles.
4. Will there be lots of sun, take some good sun-screen with you.
5. Their toys…always useful to distract them for a little while.
Anything else you can think of?
