All right, you enablers! I ordered the steel/UV Western Flyer and a steel packing cube shoulder bag (less obvious). Spanair carry on is 6k (8k to us and Canada - not sure whether this counts as it is codeshare with Air Canada). That should be lots. Backpack, as i learned last time in Spain, I am not a Spain sized person. I live in Calgary where we are headed for -30F so their winter clothes are probably my summer clothes! Also, this is supposed to be a low cost trip and the WF pretty much tanks my spending money for the trip. Now that I am retired I definitely need to cut down on my discretionary spending (but not my Tom Bihn spending obviously!!!). I will post my packing list and pics.
I am compiling a list of galleries, architecture and museums and starting my dayplanning.
