          Hi!! We aren't going next week for our honeymoon, so it's a big and long trip for us!! Can't wait!! We just have some questions about the luggage restrictions because of the size and the type of the bags permitted on their planes. We bought the Kipling brand bags on a Medium size (I believe it's called the Teagan M) do any of you know if this works out? Can we bring bigger bags? Can we have this bag plus a regular carry on?? Thanks so much!! Would really appreciate the help!!
