A recap of our trip to the states: Day 1: Last Wednesday we took a taxi to the Dublin airport. We spent time rolling our clothes, knowing that whatever we brought over had to fit in a car with us as we drove from Long Island, to Philly, to MD, to western NY and back to Long Island. We were all so proud of our packing job. For six people we had five carry-ons & three checked bags. And then the first thing the taxi driver says..."wow, you sure have a lot of luggage."
