“ want a carryon-sized bag (length + width + height = no more than 45 inches)* with soft sides (which conform better to both their contents and the places you might stow them) and strong construction. Whenever possible, resist the temptation to check bags; you can live indefinitely out of a carryon, and enjoy the consequent benefits of increased security, economy, mobility, and serenity. And remember, the goal isn't to see how much stuff you can bring aboard a plane — it's learning to manage happily with a single bag of modest size. *( i.e. a bag 21.5 x 14.5 x 9)

Pack all valuables, like cameras equipment, all essentials like toiletries, prescriptions medications in the carry-on in carry-on luggage. Wear only inexpensive jewelry and watches.  Include a change or two of clothing in your carry-on bag, in the event your checked bags are lost . Pack as lightly as possible. You want to save room for souvenirs.
