It's weird to think about packing all the clothing you plan to wear for two years into 2 suitcases and 1 carry-on. Mind you, the list is of epic proportions, but still - beyond a few new ties and maybe some new socks - this might be Andrew's entire wardrobe until summer 2010.
I know that some airlines are starting to charge fees for luggage - which ones? And do they weigh everything?
It's kind of weird - I haven't flown anywhere since last year (Hawaii, D.C.). I did take the train to Portland a time or two, but frankly taking the train is nothing like flying. No security, no need to check your bags, pretty much as long as you can lug it onto the train, you can take it.
Too bad Andrew can't take the train to Japan.
