I’m Traveling to Florence — Post #1

ciao me

Well, it’s finally the month I will be traveling to Florence.

I’m staying at Firenze Number Nine Hotel & Spa and I’ll be studying Italian at Scuola Leonardo da Vinci in the mornings. My excitement at planning the trip has really sunk in, and my first consideration is my luggage. My dear, dear luggage, which I have had for 20 years, has finally been laid to rest. So I’m in the market for new luggage. I’ve done some research, and a few pieces have stood out to me.





The featured suitcases above, from EBags and Samsonite, seem good. But I’m stuck. Any suggestions on good quality, somewhat lightweight luggage would be appreciated. As well, I’m looking for luggage available in different colors. I want to be able to pick it out quickly on the conveyor belt–I’m sure we have all been in that situation.

Please help!!!!!!



  1. I’m excited for you! I know you will have an amazing time. As far as luggage goes, I take an inexpensive small pull-bag and a shoulder bag that I carry on the plane. No checking in baggage. I hate that. I like to just pick up and go.

    So… I have found my best luggage at TJ Maxx of all places. The downside is you never know what they will have and what will be in stock. The upside? Quality luggage at decent prices. I’ll send you photos of what I currently have in rotation… A light, bright yellow, hard case Nautica multi-directional that is small enough for carry-on but empty enough for maximum stuffing, I mean, packing ($60.00 at TJ) and a larger, multi-colored, hardcase Tumi (a gift from my mother!!!) also found at TJ.
