Hello World Travelers!

Here are several items that you need to know before you go to Europe:
1.  At this point, the international airlines, have these luggage requirements/restrictions.  If something changes, I will let you know.
- You are allowed to check in 2 baggage items free-of-charge50 lb maximum per item. 
- If an item weighs more than 50 lb (and less than 70 lb), about a $75 one-time fee will be applied. 
- The dimensions of your luggage must not exceed 62 inches = height + length + width. 

As for carry on luggage in the cabin,  you may take 1 piece of baggage (measuring a maximum of 22 X 14 X 10 inch) + 1 accessory (examples: handbag, laptop computer, camera, etc.) weighing a total of 26 lb maximum. 

You can check this website out for more tips at the airport:
Here are some other links to check out - general info about the Houston Intercontinental Airport, as well as parking, security etc.
The website for Air France is:
2.  Clothing:
During the flight:
Loose, simple clothing will not only make for a more comfortable flight, but it will keep you from having to peel off all of those layers at the security gate. Any metal decorations, such as a belt buckle or jewelry will have to be removed at the security counter. One option is to place all metal, keys and loose change in a container or plastic bag in your carry-on prior to arrival. This will help streamline your check-in process. Another key component of your wardrobe is your shoes. Plan to take them off unless you’re wearing flip-flops, otherwise a pair of slip-ons may be your best bet the next time you hit the airways. 
In Europe:
In the summer, the temperatures may rise up to +86F, on some sunny and hot days even up to 95 - 99F. There may be warm nights with temperatures above 70F.  However, if the cold front comes, the temperatures can lower to 50 - 60F.
That translates, that you can bring some comfortable summer clothes and shoes, but be prepared for cooler or rainy weather too - jacket, raincoat/pocket umbrella, jeans ...
Please go to this link for additional travel tips for common clothing, etc.
4.  Electricity - European voltage and frequency are not the same as in the USA, and the plugs are different. The United States uses 110-volt electricity. In Europe they are using 220-volt electricity. Unless your appliance is dual voltage, you need to use a "converter" or a "transformer" to change the 220-volt electricity into 110-volt electricity. If your appliance is dual voltage, you can switch it to work on 220-volts, without a transformer or converter (but you will need a plug adapter in order to plug your appliance into the foreign outlets).  The converter/transformers are about $20 - $40.
Here is a link to the walmart website, where you can check out more info on this converter (check at your local Radio Shack or Walmart)
5.  Calling Internationally: To call North America, just dial 001 and then the American number (area code then local number).

6.  Credit or debit card - to get cash from an ATM in Europe, it's still the least expensive and most convenient way to get local currency.  The most accepted credit/debit cards are VISA and MasterCard.  Make sure you know your PIN number. 
As for cash, it's a good idea to carry some with you for convenience.  You will be able to exchange US Dollar to other currency as needed.
