On my last trip to Europe, I brought back a small, beautiful bottle of brandy that, need I say, lost its precious amber fluid through a small jagged hole in its lovely glass shape.
I vowed vengeance.
I vowed to drink more brandy than a Spaniard.
Then after a hangover more destructive than Hurricane Katrina, I vowed to do something about it.
In my case now sits an Otterbox. Its one of several hard cases on the market that fit into normal luggage and protects that which the baggage handlers try their hardest to break in all the airports of the world. I will put my bottles, gifts and jewellery in mine.
Your items may include toiletries, sunglasses, cameras, laptops, film, batteries and medication. My box has a foam lining and feels harder than titanium. So I won’t jump up from my "waiting lounge´ seat with a cry of despair next time see my bag falling off the luggage cart.
Don´t let the current situation break your spirit or your spirits. Fight back.
