Yes, I know what you mean, couldn’t agree with you more there. Yesterday I went to look for backpacks too (those ones with wheels), not cheap, one for $120 and the other one about $375. Yikes! I start to keep a list of things I want/must bring with me…that list is growing bigger everyday, so yeah a luggage fits more stuff, just not sure if they really going to allow that on the bus, cuz they stated that only backpacks are allowed.
BTW, did you find anybody else on this forum that will be going on the same tour with us?
Hoping July comes fast(er) ;D
