This past Christmas, travelling became a sort of lottery deal. Travelers found that they might or might not get to their destination. They might or might not get on a plane that actually left the ground. They might or might not get home and if they did, it was never or the promised day. Worse than that, no matter which direction they traveled, their luggage did not follow.
We watched news shows where luggage conveyer belts collapsed and suitcases shot out in every direction. What a way to go!
There are better travel plans available and they won’t let you down, ever.
First, pick the best travel companions.
