Pat here: As writers, the wenches travel. We travel for research. We travel for conferences. We travel for fun. So we thought we'd exchange a few of our favorite travel tips and see what happened–and apparently, it's all about the luggage! (Personally, I've always craved Terry Pratchett's suitcase with legs!)
I could write a whole column about this myself! But I'll stick to saying that it's best to never have more luggage than you can control with your own two hands. I've seen inexperienced travelers juggling half a dozen different bags of different sizes, which is a recipe for disaster.
