23 Kilos or Less

Tomorrow is the big day–my journey to Paris and London will begin! I’m pretty much packed and getting more and more excited by the hour.  I am a little nervous about the 23 kilo (50 pound) weight limit for checked baggage, as my suitcase is pretty huge and extremely full (as you can see). It may not seem that large, but this is a 29″ Samsonite suitcase (from Costco, of all places!).

**sorry about the terrible quality, my bberry doesn’t quite get it done 😦

I’m not typically one to sleep on planes–I have a rule about not sleeping in public places that I can’t seem to bypass even on the longest of flights! So of course, I feel the need to occupy my time the ENTIRE flight.  Here is my reading collection that will be entertaining me for as long as humanly possible.

We’ve got:

Wall Street Journal magazine

Costal Living magazine

Forbes magazine

People magazine (with the announcement of Kim Kardashian’s engagement–so tempting to read it before I leave!)

Bill Bryson‘s book: Notes from a Small Island–this is my reading requirement for the London portion of my trip

Lauren Weisberger‘s book, Chasing Harry Winston (I’ve been reading it for a while, but hopefully some uninterrupted plane time will allow me to finally finish it!)

Any other reading sugggestions? I could always use more!

Obviously, my ipod will be accompanying me the whole flight as well (who doesn’t take their ipod on flights these days?), and when I finally can’t stand any of those activites anymore, I will whip out my computer to watch a movie.  My computer comes last because the battery life will not last me very long, and I hate using the most boredom-reducing piece of technology first!  Does this sound crazy? Does anyone else out there do the same thing? Let me know in the comments below 🙂

Well everyone, I will try to blog about my flight and first few days in Paris next week sometime, but keep checking out this blog, as well as my regular blog over at http://meganeilers.wordpress.com/ .   Hope everyone reading this is well and embarking on your own journeys wherever they may take you.

Time to check in for my flight 🙂
