We will be gone a little over five weeks. Leave early September, fly home October 10. Trip will include Swiss Alps. Tuscany and Brugge, so will need to pack for warm and cool weather. We've had to do this for previous trips, so not worried about that.
Last year my packed 21" suitcase weighed just over 20 pounds. My hubby's was about the same. By the end of our trip, I was really tired of carrying it on and off the trains. This year I'm determined to do much better.
Just curious what your packed bag weighs. Side note: we also carry a Rick Steve's backpack. Mostly packed with stuff we use on the flight: tablet, headphones, snacks, water bottle, etc.
Looking forward to hearing how much yours weighs.
