Packing and I are not friends on the best of days but when the airlines put in stricter rules about the luggage allowances, I’m totally screwed.  I’m heading to Toronto for just shy of 2 weeks prior to going back to Auckland.  I need to meet the baggage allowance for the flight to Toronto and then ensure that I still hit the different set for the long haul flight back to Auckland.

I’ve packed my bags and then weighed them only to have to dump everything out in an attempt to re-pack my bags and then repeat.  The thing that makes this even funnier is that I’m the girl who came to Vancouver with essentially an empty suitcase due to the housing drama in Auckland.   Who knew that I could get to 50 lbs with such ease.

After deciding what I could leave behind and must travel with items and several calls to the airlines about excess baggage – I was packed and travelling to Toronto with the maximum weight and with more clothes on that what was comfortable for a spring day.  Funny the sacrifices that I’m willing to make for the duration of a 4 hour flight in order to have what I want from back home…
