European trip packing update

It’s been a busy couple of weeks, and we leave for Europe tomorrow.

In the meantime, we went to our local post office this evening to use their Automatic Postal Center machine to weigh our carry-on bags so that we could meet the stringent weight restrictions on Virgin Atlantic. The verdict?

My bag: 12 pounds .40 ounces.

Alex’s bag: 11 pounds .20 ounces.

We are both safely within the 13-pound limit. Cross-checking the stuff we are carrying with Rick Steves’ recommended packing list, the only thing we aren’t carrying is our bathing suits.

I must say, I’m quite impressed.

…but no, no photos for now. Everything’s packed up and I don’t want to open the bags up until we have to.

But it looks like we made it!
