Have Bags, Will Travel

D.G. Kaye is back, and as she reflects on some of her more memorable vacations and travel snags, she finds herself constantly struggling to keep one step ahead of the ever-changing guidelines of the airlines—with her overweight luggage in tow. Her stories alert us to some of the pitfalls of being an obsessive shopper, especially when it comes time for D.G. to bring her treasures home, and remind us of the simpler days when traveling was a breeze.
In her quest to keep from tipping the scales, D.G. strives to devise new tricks to fit everything in her suitcases on each trip. Why is she consistently a target for Canada customs on her return journeys?
D.G.’s witty tales take us from airports, to travel escapades with best friends, to reflections on how time can change the places we hold dear in our hearts. Her memories will entertain and have you reminiscing about some of your own most treasured journeys—and perhaps make you contemplate revamping your packing strategies.

Review: I headlined this review as delightful coffee talk because it reminded me of the many times my best friend, Lilly and I sat outside a coffee store in a popular shopping area enjoying pleasant conversation. We too would laugh about the ridiculous things one puts up with compared to how things used to be. One could actually imagine being sat across the table from D.G has she shares her travel experiences.

My favourite part is when she shares her experiences of Las Vegas. Having been there several times it really resonated, and I was also intrigued by visions of a much earlier Vegas for me.

  1. Kevin, a great review and I totally agree with your comment that it’s as if the reader is sitting with Debby and having a chat! Her book resonated with me and my many travels … very well-written and entertaining!
