I am an architecture student. I will need to bring my supplies.
Im thinking about bringing 1 duffle bag (my personal), 1 eagle creek switchback 22 (for my carry-on) - used for weekend backpacking and my two week trip I plan, and one checked luggage with all the architecture stuff/shoes/ clothes and coats for winter.
Otherwise I will be spending an additional 300 bucks to mail the supplies there and back. The checked suitcase would just be a normal bag, not for backpacking, since I will be stationary most of the time at my host family house.
