I remember as a kid we were going on holiday to Scotland by coach and my brother had a box of maggots for fishing in a box in his bag. Somehow they got out and were wriggling all over the floor of the coach, I was laughing so hard and he just tried to ignore them and pretend it wasn't him till some old biddy let out a scream...

We collect DVD's. My husbands prized possession is the complete series of Star Trek the Next Generation and Enterprise (about $1500 worth!).

When we flew over from Canada we had all our DVD's (about 400 movies or seasons, no cases) in our suitcases. They of course lost our luggage so I was freaking out until they arrived. I can't imagine the cost of all of them, but I knew how much the Star Trek stuff was. The luggage eventually arrived but I'll definitely be more careful next time we move them around.
