...cross pack is a great idea...
I am 57 years old, and have travelled quite a bit, and I had one of those hitting-palm-against-my-forehead moments when I realized that this never occurred to hubby and me. We've been lucky, in that we've never had luggage lost (by airline or cruise ship), except for one solitary golf putter one time. But we have pretty much packed "his" and "hers" bags on trips. What an excellent idea "cross packing" is -- if one bag is lost, neither of you is totally without a change of clothes.
I still can't believe this never occurred to us, and that in all these years we've never read that tip before!!!
