We are about to move to Italy in less than 2 weeks and i never would have thought to label the luggage like this! We will have up to 10 for our family of 5 so this to me is genius!

I have been looking at the brand you used and love the 2 in 1 zip off back pack, but it is discontinued or not available or something. They offer a different one than what you used. After all the travel you have done, have they still held up as you would have expected?

Love the video, too…complete with music from Vampire Weekend :-)

This looks like an amazing adventure. All the best!

Unfortunately these awesome backpack/suitcases do not seem to be available at Costco anymore. The only websites I can find them on they cost $120, which seems to be more than what you paid. Seems like the perfect combination. I wish I could find them for a better price!

I’m wondering if you’d be willing to share a bit about what you packed (in terms of clothes) for yourself for the year, and also if you’ve observed French kids dressing more formally for school than American kids typically need to. (We’re moving from southern California; kids wear Crocs and t-shirts to school year round. Given the exchange rate, if I need to buy my daughters more shirts with collars, I’d like to get some here to take with us!)

Thanks so much.

My husband and I are moving to Germany at the end of the year with our daughter, too. We’re also trying to figure out how to downsize, store things, etc. Are you a military family?

It’s always recommended you should carry lightweight luggage which help to avoid such incidents. I’m glad you guys found luggage that you love. I bought Eagle Creek bag in last summer and really its worth for the money.

I really enjoyed the photos and Ralph’s video. I had a hard time commenting? Please pass it onto him how much I enjoyed it. Your kids are DARLING. Pictures don’t suffice. I really enjoyed hearing their voices and their French! ;)

Was just browsing your posts and can’t believe you moved to France for a year! It’s amazing how you were able to do it in such short notice and you pulled it off extremely well :) What an exciting adventure for you and your family!

My husband is French and I moved there with him after we got married. We lived right inside Paris for 2 years and then finally moved back when he got his permanent residence card for Canada. We go back to the South of France to see family every 2 years. We have family in Normandy as well. It’s a beautiful quiet countryside there.

Also you chose a good time to bring baby June on a long flight. Sleeping through most of the flight is a blessing. When we took our 18 month old on our 12 hr flight to France last June, he only slept 2 hours. Maybe even less.

By the way, thanks for the carryon/backpack tip. I’ll definitely have to check that out at Costco! ;)
