European Travel Luggage
One of the most difficult
tasks before each trip is trying to “travel light”. I have purchased many
different makes and models of luggage over the years. Suitcases should be only as large and as heavy as you can
carry yourself….You will not have to depend upon others for help….and most important, your back will thank
Listed are some companies
that carry large selections of top brands of travel luggage. This
industry has grown over the years and made many changes due to the airline travel restrictions.
I use packing cubes on
all my trips. I did not think I would like them but they are easy
to use and are compatible with my luggage. In many small
European hotels, there is almost no furniture or storage capacity and these clever packing tools give you
many options and do save space. They can work for you like a portable storage chest.
Carry on luggage
You need to check with your airline to
find the baggage requirements for checked and carry-on items. The
information varies between airlines, destinations and countries.
The restrictions change from time to
time, so be sure to check again just prior to your flight. If your flight originates in the USA, you need to check with TSA (Transportation Security Administration) to find out what
items you can bring on board and what items need to be purchased in the secured areas of the
airports. Many countries follow the United States TSA
recommendations. 3-1-1 for carry-ons = 3.4 ounce bottle
or less (by volume) ; 1 quart-sized, clear, plastic, zip-top bag; 1 bag per passenger placed in screening
bin. One-quart bag per person limits the total liquid volume each traveler can bring. 3.4 oz. container size
is a security measure. This procedure is mandatory in the
USA but is not always required in European airports.
