As you're packing, make a list of what goes into each bag. That way, if you have to file a lost luggage claim, you'll know what you lost. Be sure to pack anything especially valuable, such as prescriptions, electronics, or jewelery, in your carry-on bag. And pack enough clothing and essentials in your carry-on to last 24 hours. That way, if your bags do disappear, you aren't stuck with just the clothing on your back.
Would you please be nice enough to clarify the bold written part to me?
It means the clothing you are wearing.
Thank you. Just one more thing.
The word "back" refers to the clothes now you are wearing or the clothes that are in the bag?
Two of us have said that 'the clothes on your back' refers to the clothes you are wearing.
Think of it as 'the clothes on your body at that moment'.
