One of the ways you can tell that your blog is starting to gain an audience* is that you start to get random offers of content from people you don’t know. Most of it is inappropriate (though I was tempted by the gorgeous interactive map of the kingdoms in Game of Thrones). Some of it is actively offensive. But now and then someone sends you a gem, like this quirky history of luggage by Case Luggage**
Personally, I’d like to see Nelly Bly‘s famous carpet bag added to the timeline: the intrepid reporter traveled around the world in less than 80 days with one carefully packed piece of hand-luggage.
Any great moments in luggage you think should have been included?
