Gearing Up is Back!

It's been a while since I've written about travel and gear, thanks to a redesign at the Boston Globe's Travel Section, but the redesign is done (and looks great) and my column is up and running. It's now called "Gearing Up," and the focus is on gear and gadgets for traveling with kids.

Pack, lug, ride in style

Children love having their own suitcases, but they rarely love carrying them, so parents end up toting the kids and the kid stuff. With the Trunki, when your tot is too tired to drag the bag around she can sit on it and ride. The hard-sided, wheeled carry-on is made for 3- to 6-year-olds. It holds riders up to 110 pounds and has a five-gallon capacity, plenty for everything a child needs in-flight. About $40 at Magic Beans (312 Harvard St., Brookline, 617-264-2326) and online at littlejetset.com and trunki.net.

Boston.com is also featuring a cool gallery of photos and info about my top 10 family travel gadgets -- check it out!
