We packed until pretty late last night trying to get everything in two suitcases which was just not going to happen since we decided to buy sleeping bags and take them with us rather than rent them at the hotel in Moshi, Tanzania.
So we have two suitcases, a large duffel bag, a rolling carryon and two backpacks. This is certainly not traveling light! And boy will I worry about all the luggage getting there.
It's a short flight to JFK and then eight hours to Amsterdam and another eight to Kilimanjaro airport. Breaking up the long flight is okay.....as long as the luggage makes it!
I'm nervous, but I always am on a big trip like this. And this could be the biggest yet!
