One thing that made Americans stand out while traveling in Europe, were the HUGE luggage many were dragging. Since many people city- or country-hop while visiting Europe, packing light is so essential to your overall experience. Remember those flights I mentioned I had to catch in my Greece Blog, there’s no way I would have made each flight if I had checked bags.
When many of you saw my small carry-on, you couldn’t believe I only had this one bag for a week. So many people were shocked at how much I was able to pack in such a little bag, so here’s a break down:
One Week in a Carry-on
1 maxi dress
2 pair of shorts
3 pair of tights (women)
1 pair of jeans
1 long sleeve shirt
1 jacket or sweater (for everyday wear)
1 pair of sandals
1 pair of tennis shoes – that you’ll have on already
Then, Roll items item, put your shoes at the bottom, and don’t be afraid to wash your clothes if you need to.
Additional Backpack for: toiletries, detergent, books, tablets, blanket (optional), medicine, travel documents.
