After packing & repacking so many times that I lost count, we were able to downsize our lives from an apartment into two suitcases and two backpacks. That’s a packing feat if there ever was one! Unfortunately, we weren’t exactly under 50 lbs for our large bags, so we had to do some rearranging at the ticket counter, but the flight agent was kind and allowed our bags to go through at 53 lbs each. And thanks to Scandinavian Airlines our bags were free! So if you plan on coming to visit, then we highly suggest you go through Kayak’s website on Scandinavian Air.
