Airport Tags Get a Modern Facelift

Just got back from three weeks in Central America, and while I’ve got tons of photos, travel tales, and itineraries slotted for the next week or so, I couldn’t resist sharing these bright, modern take on the standard luggage tag by Naxart (featured today on Touch of Modern).

Ever wish you could find a travel guide that had as much personality as the place you were visiting?
