On my last trip to Antarctica I ran into a lot of trouble while traveling with a fax machine and my huge red bag that was overweight. At every airport I had to reclaim my bags and then check them in again. Soooo, while at the New York Travel Show I found a unique service called, Luggage Forward. They pick up your luggage from your home and deliver it to your hotel room for a fee. No need to bring it to the airport. Convenient, fast and they say reliable. A good service to know about.http://www.luggageforward.comCheck out the you tube video at: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bFzz3tiQK8o
