It is daunting task to even think about packing for 30 days in just one suitcase and a carry on! I’m one of those types of people (a.k.a. my mother’s daughter) who will be going somewhere for the weekend and pack everything “just in case” I’ll need it. For example, I have some school work to do I will proceed to bring my 15 lb. textbook with me because I have 6 pages to read….so I guess you could say I’m not the most efficient packer.
At least I know I’m not good at it though right? First step is admitting…so I’ve gotten some great tips already just from looking at my Pinterest Travel Page (which always seems to eat up more time then I want it to) and talking with some friends who have studied abroad for the whole semester and these are some of the key tips I found out:
- roll clothes, don’t fold
- pack items in shoes to use all of the available space
- wear as many as the bulky items you can on the plane so they don’t take up room
- always leave extra space in your suitcase on the way over to Europe because you will fill it by the time you head back
- comfy walking shoes are a must
And here are some sites I found that have some great tips too:
(the last one is our trip providers recommendations)
So after looking at all of these and getting a jist of what I already know, if anyone has any other travel tips they would like to share, anything would be greatly appreciated!
