Suitcaseboarding are pictures from travels. Situations that we all experience in different ways on our travels, each one a little differently. The environment and people around us change, but we have something in common, we usually share the same goal when traveling – we want to get somewhere. For us, the journey is not just about moving from one place to another, it is mainly about what happens during it. You know the cliched phrase “even the journey can be the destination”? There are many stops on the way that we must go through and at which we must usually wait before we can go further. We must wait, in a strange place, with strangers, with only our baggage, until circumstances let us go on. And when that happens, we rush to the next point. We stop at it and wait obediently again before we can continue further. We hurry so we can wait. We wait so we can hurry.
What happens while you wait? What do you do? Do you listen to music? Do you dance? Do you look around? Do you feel the need to make contact with other passengers? Or are you trying to hide and impatiently waiting for the connection? Are you leaning on your suitcase? Will you ride it past a stop, a bench, a departure board or other passengers? Or are you just trying to deal with an excess amount of unwieldy luggage?
The desire to share these moments unites the members of our “suitcase troupe” who are
now on their way to you.
