Luggage Idea for International Flights

Have you experienced international flights? It can be scary the first time. I remember the first time I flew from US to Philippines and vice versa, I was scared because I'm flying alone with my kids. I wish my husband was with me. It's hard if it's your first time as you have no idea what to watch out for especially the contents of your luggage. It's nice if you have a friend who can advice you on what to bring and how much luggage weight is allowed. But the first thing you should really check out is your plane's information about this and your final country of destination's traveler guide like tsa.gov for instance if you're bound from foreign country to US. You can either call them or check them out in the internet. Most airline companies these days are high tech and inclined to be reachable via their website in the internet.

I made sure that I have a separate bag that I can carry all the time for our important papers. You can choose a backpack or a rolling luggage. Backpacks are nice than rolling luggage because you can move fast without delay. If you're traveling with kids, bring 1 umbrella stroller. As for the luggage bags, one adult/full seat passenger is allowed to bring two 50 lbs luggage. This is the content of my luggage. Note: This is from my 2013 international flight from Philippines to US. The immigration asked me what's the content of a kalamay. I told him that it has coconut jam in it. I was worried if the steel pan and pot get confiscated but I'm glad they were still there.

 

I was able to bring dried fish and squid, and canned goods.

How about you, what other things were you able to bring after an international flight? Could you share with me too what were not allowed?
