So here we are in the last week of preparation for our trip to Jinotega, Nicaragua. For today we would like to highlight the importance of packing appropriately. Review the Global Glimpse packing list and pack like the savvy traveler that you are. We don’t want to have to ask you to change clothes if you bring and wear something that is not allowed. And this isn’t a fashion show so you don’t need to bring your best clothes. In fact, you’ll stand out more in new and fashionable clothes. There will be no costume changes required for the activities we will be engaging in! 😉
Regarding LUGGAGE: per Global Glimpse you are ONLY allowed to bring 1 bag of no more than 50 lbs. to check, and one carry-on piece with a maximum weight of 10 kg (22 lbs.), the sum of exterior dimensions (height + length + width) may not exceed 115 centimeters (45 inches). Even though Avianca Airlines does allow 2 bags to be checked, Glimpsers must adhere to the Global Glimpse policy. And the Avianca website says “Please note carry-on baggage that is oversize or overweight, or due to its irregular shape does not fit in the overhead bin or under the front seat, will not be accepted and must be checked” and this would not be good since you may be charged an extra baggage fee.
