One quick thing I wanted to add into the blog -- I'm sure you've all seen that American Airlines is charging 15 dollars for the first bag, and 25 dollars for the second bag. Luckily we booked tickets before this went into effect. So we don't have to worry about that. It is important though for you to know a little bit about the restrictions you'll face traveling overseas. The American Airlines website will explain all the things you'll need to know.
