Why am I #50 on the upgrade list?: T-Shirt Designs I’d Love To Make

I’m considering making some t-shirts of things frequent travelers know and love (or hate), to add a little humor to the routine. As much as travel is frustrating, we love to poke fun at the things that keep us coming back flight after flight, or stay after stay.

Over the past few days, I’ve come up with a few of what I think are good, catchy phrases (if they’re not, I won’t take the credit…). These are purely meant to be humorous, and opinions are my own.
