Before Linda and I embarked on this journey we announced to family and friends that we would be taking cabin baggage only.
'Well, that's a brave decision,' said some. Others said that we were being 'very courageous' and that it couldn't be done.
We talked to Mr Google and found on YouTube that many had gone before and succeeded.
There were plenty of videos to be watched about the process and so we decided it was for us.
The first segment of our journey has been completed and so far we are impressed it can be done. So nice not to have lots of heavy luggage or to be waiting at the carousels at the airport.
We can always fall back on checked luggage if need be but at this stage we do not plan to do so.
