What kind of luggage do you recommend?
- First, look for something that weighs less than 14 lbs. Bring a bathroom or luggage scale to weigh prospective suitcases. Most luggage stores have hand held luggage weighing scales.
- Second, look for something with INLINE wheels. We will be traveling over cobblestones, and suitcases with small exposed wheels will soon find themselves victims of wheel amputation.
- Third, look for something with decent zippers, latches and handles. It’s no fun toting a suitcase that won’t stay closed, or has a broken handle. Most students find that duffle bags with wheels work well. They are soft sided, making them lighter, and allow for needed expansion as souvenir purchases increase.
- While you are purchasing a suitcase, purchase a luggage strap – just in case!
For Carry-ons – We recommend a backpack.
