    When you travel, do you do anything interesting to distinguish your bags or luggage?

    For example, I tie a lime green shoe lace on my red bag!

    We normally use stickers on our luggage so instantly we can recognize it. At the same time, we tied a tag on the handle of each luggage.

    Yes, I learned this on a tour (pilgrimage, actually) in India, where everyone tied an orange cloth strip on every bag - 3 weeks, nothing lost.

    Ever after that, I put a rainbow luggage strap around my bag. It was a wonderful support when, exhausted, I had to watch 200 black business bags come off the carousel. Just wait for the rainbow!

      Excellent plan, Sid!  That's one reason why I went for a bright marking because so many of the bags look the same and that way you didn't have to search for the name tag especially when you didn't want to run around the carousel.

    We do the same, tie a bright colored lace around our bags, or two colors knot together so easier to distinguish from the rest who would be using the same color. I like that idea from Sid, rainbow!... I'm going to try that next time. Thanks for this question.

    Yes, like you we put jazzy coloured ribbon and laces around the handles and straps; it's so much easier to spot them on the conveyor belt as everyone else has similar cases.

      Thanks annart...I like that you used the phrase of jazzy colors.

    My mom used to tie a fuzzy yarn tassel to her bags and one to her purse or jacket, so she could show it to someone who might be retrieving her bags. Point and show, would work even if someone didn't speak the same language.

      Rochelle, thanks much for your comment.  That's really a great idea, too, that you're sharing.
