Don’t push your luck!!

(Para ler este post em português: Não dê sopa para o azar!!)

Everyone who travels knows how annoying it can be to get your luggage back upon arrival, since suitcases from top brands are always similar and come in the same colors: black, blue, red, black, orange, black, green, black, brown, black. (Anyways light colors are not recommended cause they get dirty very quickly!)

To avoid problems I prefer buying the colored ones, but still it happened to me once to have a missing red (!!) bag in a big airport in the US. The conveyor belt rolled and rolled… One by one I watched the other passengers pick up their baggage and leave. The only thing left on the carousel was a bag exactly like mine: same size, color, brand, model. I went to the baggage service desk and explained what happened to the attendant. The twin bag contained a label with name and international phone number so I beg him to call the owner, but he refused. Instead he asked me to fill a boring complaint form. Lucky me I was still there arguing with him when the other traveler realized the blunder and came back with my precious suitcase. Happy end to my story, but it’s not always like this.

IMG_6820I learnt from my dear friend Silvania that an efficient and cheap way to identify your bags is to tie colorful ribbons on it, but if you want a more stylish accessory, the kind that will draw everyone’s attention at the airport, why not indulge your traveler soul spending a few bucks on a super cool luggage tag?

Wandering around I’ve got myself a few pretty nifty tags, but there’s no need to go on a round-the-world trip to find one that suits you. Take a look at the selection I have prepared specially for those who are too lazy even to browse the web. I hope at least it inspires you!
