Diana and I are moving to Tokyo, Japan in 6 days. Packing tomorrow 11/18, Wed to Friday. Friday is the day the professional movers, who are very well paid by Diana’s company, will be packing everything in the house.

This weekend, should be a quite open. We are planning to test drive cars. I’m selling or donating my ’95 Mazda Protege LX, and we’ll need to buy a car when we move back from Japan, eventually. So, we’re test driving cars, so we can have an idea of what we want (from a cheaper used car) when we get back. Good planning right?

Monday morning, we’re getting on our flight.

We’ll be maxing out our luggage though. So, according to our air carrier, flights to & from the US for economy class are:

The total linear dimensions for each piece of baggage shall not exceed 158 cm (62 in., derived by adding the height, width and length). Each piece must not weigh more than 32 kg (70 lbs.). Furthermore, the sum of the linear dimensions of two pieces must not exceed 273 cm (107 in.).

For other international flights, the limit is 20 kg. Which means, that we probably might want to buy a travel scale so we can avoid the overweight luggage fees when we travel in Asia later this year.
