Tips for preparing your suitcase
To prepare the suitcase it is important to choose a good suitcase.
For air travel we recommend using a hard suitcase, since this way you avoid getting your things broken at the airport.
Anyway, if you do not have a hard suitcase is recommended to wrap the backpack with the plastic of the airport, is the best way to ensure that you will not spoil anything.
It is also important that you take a handbag with a mode, because if by bad luck you lose your luggage at least you will have spare clothes for a day.
Once you have the bag ready it’s time to start filling it. If you prepare a list with everything you want to take is much more difficult to forget something important.
