i took my aunt and uncle to the airport earlier this afternoon. they are off to india for about six weeks.
they have seen how i travel, and i think that's why my aunt sheepishly smiled as she said that their stuff only occupies one and a half suitcases. the rest are gifts. the funny thing is that they travel a couple of times a year, and most every time with four big suitcases and two small roll aboard suitcases.
the largest of the four large ones wasn't that heavy because it contained a comforter and related items (a gift). but we weighed the other three to make sure they weren't too heavy, each one weighing between 46 and 49 lb!
this is one situation where i don't even mention the aeronaut, even though they know very well what it is because i've traveled with them before or i see them when i am in india.
