Remember: Your Bags Matter!

A suitcase with wheels doesn’t guarantee easy travel. Remember the stairs. Whatever you bring, you will likely need to carry yourself. Be sure to remember a good weekend bag. Most discount airlines restrict carry-on luggage to one item. A good backpack can become a weekend essential.

That’s it. Have a blast and check out the ISA You Tube Channel for more helpful videos!
