Hate to put a fly in the ointment, but if flying domestic, there's a weight limit per bag of, I believe, 35 pounds; international is 50. But that can vary airline to airline so you will probably want to check their website. They charge pretty hefty excess baggage charges. Plus what makes me a wee bit crazy is that if, say, one bag weighs 30 and the other weighs 40, they don't average it out but charge you for one being 5 over. I've seen people standing at the counter repacking their luggage. No lie. We were recently in Europe and our heavier bags got a special "heavy" tag put on it so the handlers would be warned. Traveling isn't quite as glamourous as some people would think. Good luck and have a good time anyway.
