What a relief! Dave’s suitcase was delivered to our hotel the next day. I hope that never happens to us again. Or to anyone else.
I read some good advice on a website that lists packing recommendations, and next time I will actually do this – if you are traveling with someone, and you are both checking suitcases – pack 1/2 of your clothes in each suitcase….so you both have something in the event one suitcase doesn’t make it. Because….even though you check two suitcases at the same time, they never come down the luggage chute at the same same. Why is that? When do they get separated?
