Traveling challenges: In search of my luggage

This is probably one of the most difficult challenges for me whenever I travel and there is no getting away from it: I need to depend on sighted assistance to help me out.

This usually comes in the form of agents helping me to locate and fetch my luggage.  I do my best to ensure that my suitcases are marked in ways that anyone helping me can identify them.  One of my suitcases has a pink Disney tag on it while the other has yellow strips of tape pasted all over it.

I have been told by many baggage agents that many people have black or blue suitcases so, if possible, it is always preferable to have suitcases that are either of a different color or ones that are clearly marked.

I recently bought a luggage locator and I can place the transponder in my suitcase and use the receiver to locate it.  It’s one way to deal with this challenge.
