Big luggage for a Long Stay?

Jump to last reply

I've decided to study in Germany and I'll be staying there for a long time (maybe 3 years). I'll take my wheeled luggage that has been fine for traveling, measuring 74/48/30 in centimeters (about 29 inches high, 18.9 inches wide, 11.8 inches deep). (Beside the luggage, I also bring my medium-size backpack to keep my more valuable belongings)

It seems that this big wheeled luggage isn't the most practical thing since I have to move to several different cities during the first few weeks in order to attend some entry exams in different universities. I also consider that it isn't practical to carry this big luggage on the train. On the contrary I need a big suitcase to pack many belongings, especially clothes, that I need for a long term stay. The question is: Is this luggage the best choice for my situation?

Thanks in advance.
