Today we pack to go to Lisbon for four days and then on to Torrevieja. Although we’ve shipped 29 boxes to Torrevieja, we can’t expect that material before March at the earliest. So what we’ve left there on previous trips and what we’re carrying now will be what we have for the time being. (Although I hear they have stores in Europe. I’ll keep you posted on that one.)
We’re flying TAP, the Portuguese national airline. Its weight limits are more restrictive than the ones for US carriers: two checked bags each, with a limit of 50.6 pounds per bag. Your carry on bag is limited to 17.6 pounds; your personal item is 4.4 pounds. Whoa, Nelly! We have our work dumped out – er, cut out – for us.
