I am going to start my graduate studies in the US this September. I am planning on visiting Europe on my way from India. Since I am moving to the US, travelling light is out of the question. I expect to have 2 large (80 x 50 x 30 cm) bags with me at least.
My main destination and port of entry is going to be Amsterdam (as I disclosed on my visa application). I had planned a 10-day trip earlier, covering 3 cities, anticipating a delay in the visa approval. Now that I have the visa, I am thinking of expanding the trip to 20 days or more. The problem, of course, is luggage.
I have searched for luggage storage facilities in Amsterdam, Berlin, and they cost way too much (15-16 euros a day per bag). Does anyone have an alternative? I am also willing to consider adding a destination city to my itinerary for cheap enough luggage storage.
Apart from luggage storage, is there any other option? Can I ship my luggage from my first destination to last destination, where they will keep it until I pick it up? Does anyone ave an experience with this? How much does it usually cost? Any suggestions/tips are welcome.
