If something seems too good to be true, it probably is. Case in point: A discount airline, Air Asia, made me pay an extra $30 for overweight luggage on my flight from Hanoi to Bangkok. So thatís how airlines make money while charging as little as $60 a ticket.
Being a pack rat when you have to squeeze all your belongings into a single backpack is not good. Jen and Amanda are threatening to hold me down while they dispose of the eight books Iím carrying around. Hey, I might want to read them one day. The one book I did throw away? "How to Pack." Geez, I shouldn't have tossed it-it could have come in handy!
