    So true to like!

    I am sure many of you have had this experience repeatedly, whether you were on the international or long distance domestic haul!

    Maybe this story will give you a chance to laugh at yourself for being conned in hauling luggage for everyone else but yourself when you were moving long distance!!:thumb:

    Oh the numerous times I have had to do that. However, nowadays I do travel quite light taking the necessary things only. People however kindly give you things for you to use.

    The worst situation is when the goods increase sizeably in quantityand weight.

    So much pain. Why can’t she just say a no and a sorry that she can’t carry any of those gifts.

    If I can’t, I would rather excuse myself, simple, right!

    I would care less what the other has to say, and they will anyways say if not on this, then on something else. Sorry, but no extra kilos going in by bags, if I am not ready to.
