  1. Baggage

    Baggage is any number of bags, cases and containers which hold a traveller's articles during transit. Luggage is more or less the same concept as "baggage", but is normally used in relation to the personal baggage of a specific person or persons. The modern traveller can be expected to have packages containing clothing, toiletries, small possessions, trip necessities, and on the return-trip, souvenirs. For some, luggage and the style thereof is representative of the owner's wealth. Baggage, or baggage train, can also refer to the train of people and goods, both military and of a personal nature, which commonly followed pre-modern armies on campaign.
