My Packing List for 12 Weeks in Europe, hint: It all fits in a tiny backpack
My hot boyfriend and I know how to pack light. We did very well on our 6 week trip last year, and are packing even lighter for a 12 week jaunt that starts tomorrow.
All I am bringing with me is one backpack (a small book bag-type bag, not a big REI backpacking rig) and a small purse. I laid all my crap out and took a photo so you'd have a visual and I can explain everything:
Six light cotton dresses - I am a fan of one piece outfits.
Two scarves - they are very light and are great in a pinch to cover your shoulders in Italian churches, lay on top of a dirty park bench, or just act as a versatile accessory to dress up and outfit.
Bottoms: 1 pair of pajama shorts, 2 pairs of leggings, 2 light cotton skirts, 1 pair of jeans
2 cardigan-type sweaters made out of a very light material. Great for layering over tank tops if it's colder.
Tops - 1 long sleeved shirt, 4 t-shirts, 6 tank tops
A dozen pairs of underwear
Five pairs of socks
Flip flops (1 of two pairs of shoes I'm taking)
Bar of soap, chapstick
Travel bottle of natural sunscreen, lavender oil for deodorant
Q-tips and nail file
Multi country travel adapter with two USB ports (charging cord for tablet not pictured)
Also packing, but not pictured:
cloth napkins (to act as hankies and sex clean up rags - they were in the wash when I took this photo)
travel bottle of coconut oil (general body moisturizer and sex lube)
pens & small notepad
reusable water bottle
2 of those reusable grocery bags that fold up into themselves in a nice tiny little pouch (so fucking handy!)
tiny wallet for cash and coins only
