Luggage Size for 3 Months abroad, one location?

Jump to last reply

I've done a lot of searching on this site (and others) about the appropriate size luggage to take when one is traveling abroad, but only to one location, and I haven't really found answers.
I'm generally a light-ish packer (My standard suitcase is an expandable 22" rolling suitcase. When I'm going home for a long break I tend to stuff that to the brim --especially when you count in shoes-- but I can get by with a pretty small bag).
However, it's one thing to pack light when you're going to be traveling and carrying luggage up and down train stations and airports, etc. and another thing to wear the same thing every day when you're living somewhere. I don't think I could happily live out of the 22" for a long time.

I'm going to be spending this summer in a Druze village in Northern Israel (all three months! Oh, I'm so excited!) and though I'll be bringing a backpack for the occasional hike and short trips, I was wondering what size you all would recommend to live out of for three months.
I'm going to have to check my luggage anyways (LOT airlines only allows you 13 lbs. for a carry-on, and though I may be able to make the size requirements, I won't make weight) and I'm perfectly ok with that.

I'm thinking that getting a rolling duffle makes the most sense for easy transport in the airport and maximum space on the way back to the States. But having realized that 22" is too small for me, I don't know how much is too big.

Any help and suggestions you guys may have would be much appreciated!
Thanks!
