What can you take on a plane?

I can’t speak definitively on this question, but I can give you a list of what we managed to squeeze onto our flight to Seattle.

  • 3 checked 50 lb. suitcases
  • 1 checked 80 lb. suitcase ($50 overweight fee)
  • 2 adults and 1 lap infant
  • 1 carry-on sized suitcase
  • 1 large backpack
  • 1 violin case
  • 1 plastic bag of food, water and diapers
  • 1 infant nursing pillow
  • 3 heavy winter jackets

In one of the jackets’ pockets we stowed our camera, a portable Chinese dictionary, computer CD’s,  a portable hard drive, an iPod, duct tape (because you never know), and our travel alarm clock.  Leaving home for the last time before moving abroad, you load things wherever there’s spare room to find.

    Leaving Rome after 3 years was stressful for me… trying to figure out how to fit everything in our luggage! Fortunately, G has a better (and cooler) head for that kind of thing!

    God bless you guys!

    Guten Tag die Leute!

    so, I talked to Dora today and she said she has a bunch of friends in Shanghai and some other place near Nanjing she could set you up with if you ever need contacts.
