Please join me in mourning the end of my dearly beloved, much used and abused Samsonite suitcase.I received this suitcase from my parents at some point in graduate school (Thanks Mom and Dad!) and it has made many a trip with me, rolling along behind me, taking any abuse I might give it. Sadly, it received a fatal zipper injury and can no longer be trusted to keep my stuff inside and other stuff out. Happily, the Iulius mall near me boasts a Samsonite store. I believe in good luggage. You don’t need the aggrivation of a misbehaving bag while traveling.
Despite its zipper failure, the handle of my Samsonite works beautifully and the suitcase still rolls well. I believe in the brand. So, today a new suitcase entered my life. I hope for many years of happy travel with my new companion.
Thank you, dear old suitcase, for your years of work with me. I shall miss you.
New suitcase, welcome to the traveling family!
