Due to various issues, but mainly bad planning, I had to buy a suitcase in Hanoi before I flew to Chile. I needed one which was nice and small, so I could take it on as hand-luggage (I already figured the connection times were a bit tight.)

The one I bought said it was Samsonite. However, I have a sneaking suspicion that it wasn’t…

It lost one of its legs on the flight back to Doha…and then as I arrived at the house – look that happened!

At least it made it home before disintegrating!! I must stop buying things off dodgy street vendors!
