We will have Two options:

  • We can choose to choose one robust suitcase (rigid) whose strengths are that it is easy to carry and is more resistant; and whose negative points are that it weighs more and that the wheels usually take up a lot of space.
  • We can also choose the second option: a backpack. Its positive points are that it is light and flexible and its negative points are that it has to be carried around and that it does not offer as much protection for fragile objects.

In this case, as we are organizing two suitcases for two people, we will choose both options: a robust suitcase and a backpack.

  • We will put the underwear in the pockets of the rest of the clothes.
  • We will press every so often as we put clothes on to get the air out.
  • We will reserve one of the interior pockets to store the Dirty clothes.
  • If there is still underwear what to save, take advantage of empty spaces and corners to save it.
  • Use the inside shoes to save the Socks or small items.
  • Save the shoes in plastic bags so as not to get the rest of the luggage dirty.
  • Get dressed that day in the clothes and shoes that weigh the most.
  • La scarf Take it with you on the flight, you can use it as a blanket.
  • The last thing we will put will be the plastic toiletry bags with all the liquid products so that it is easier for us to take it out when we arrive at the airport.

With what we have advised you to carry a suitcase will weigh around 8 kilos and the other about 7 more or less. You still have room to put something or other that you want to take!

Remember as a last note, that the scholarships shopping section Duty Free that we find in all airports, they do not count as baggage. Use them to carry anything extra you want to add: another book, the external battery of the mobile, the mp3, a magazine, etc.

And now we can only wish you a good trip!
