The Trunki is the best investment I have ever made. Tea had the time of his life riding his suitcase up and down concourses of three airports in the last 24 hours. He only took out one senior citizen. Kidding.
Do not fly US Airways. They try to kill children. We pre-ordered the kid’s meal for Tea. It was stinky fish and Belgian endives (possibly the world’s most bitter vegetable). The adult meal? Pasta Alfredo. I guess there were grapes with the kid’s meal – the super large, extra chokable kind for kids that have a hard time chewing. Between starvation and choking on fish bones or grapes, the airlines clearly did not want Tea to survive the flight.
We thumbed our noses at the volcano on the way past and arrived safe in Belgium early Wednesday morning.
A passenger who sat across from us on the transatlantic flight tracked me down at the baggage carousel to tell me how great a job Tea did – I agree and hope this bodes well for future travels. Next time we’ll smuggle you in the Trunki, but get ready to hang on tight – Tea’s a wild driver.
