Subject: rolling luggage vs. backpack
I have just purchased a rolling bag that will convert to a backpack. The main drawback to it is that it is 4 1/2 lbs. heavier than the backpack I've used for the last two monthlong European trips. We will be traveling by train and bus in Portugal and Spain this fall and I'm vacillating between my usual backpack and my new rolling/converting to backpack bag. Can anyone who has tried both ways give me some advice of the pros and cons? I've searched this board for any info and have found none. Thanks for any responses. Grace
