Photo of the Day (12.7.10)

Photo of the Day (12.7.10) I love travel gear shots. I'm always curious to know what people consider essential items & what tech gadgets people can't live without on the road. This photo was taken in 2005 and at first glance, seemed pretty outdated. These days, it's rare to see a camera that...

Ask Gadling: What to do when you can't fit everything into your luggage

Ask Gadling: What to do when you can't fit everything into your luggage In this day and age, when we have to pack so carefully -- in smaller suitcases -- to avoid checking our luggage, it's just not fair when we get to the end of a trip and the dang suitcase won't close.

How to pack for back-to-back trips

How to pack for back-to-back trips Sometimes, the stars mis-align and you have to take two trips right in a row, with 72 hours or less in between.

Through the Gadling Lens:  5 photography items I'm glad I blew money on In my family, I'm definitely the saver, while my husband is definitely the spender.

Isthisyourluggage.com sounds like either a great website for people who've lost their luggage to watch for their missing belongings, or like a black market scam where bad guys might steal your luggage and then sell it to you for ransom online.
