Judy, one of my very good friends, expressed her concern when I told her that J.J. and I will be traveling with 2 suitcases and one backpack each. In Europe our primary mode of transportation is train. We have to be prepared to pull and carry our own luggage.
Yes I was able to pack most of the items we need including stuffing my trusted down pillow and still remain under weight — less than 12 kilos for me and less than 15 kilos for J.J. International airlines are usually 20 kilos limit per bag.
Now at the One World lounge, we are enjoying light snack before boarding our Iberia Airline flight.
