Traveling lightly?

As you can see while I was in Portland I spent some time watching the world from our 12th floor window in the hotel. I was taking photos of the changing street below when I saw this SUV being loaded up with this pile of luggage. I have always thought I did not do very well at traveling lightly but these women have me beat!
As I watched in amazement they loaded up their vehicle. Including the racks that held all of the blue bags. I thought there was no way they were ever going to be able to fit everything in.
As I watched they stuffed, moved and pushed all of these things in their vehicle.
I imagine at the end of this the hotel door man was very glad to see it all fit and to be able to send them on their way. I hope they tipped him well. This could not have been easy.

I hope all of you are having a good week. I am off on Friday for the weekend to visit my kids and deliver a bike, golf clubs and cookies. I won't be traveling lightly but I won't have as much stuff as the women I watched in Portland. I love being a mom if even for short periods of time these days.


  1. What a hoot! Where on earth would one need that much luggage! Even if I packed everything in my closet and dresser I still would only have a fraction of what they brought along!)

  2. This is hilarious! I love photographing what I see in the street when I'm somewhere away from home. These people must have been en route home from a trip around the world. LOL.
