I’m not too sure if I have mentioned this on my blog yet but Tom and I are going on another vacation next month. We are headed to Europe for three and a half weeks! This trip has been booked for just about a year so now that it’s getting close, I am so excited!
Although I am also becoming super stressed about packing. We are going the backpacking route and I don’t exactly travel light. To go to Vegas/Phoenix for 6 days I took the largest size suitcase and just barely made the 50lb weight limit. So packing for 3.5 weeks in a backpack is going to be tricky. I definitely know my makeup will have to be widdled down to
the essentials 1 makeup bag 2 makeup bags.
Jenna Marbles gifs on women packing pretty much describes me perfectly…
I recently came across a great post by Julie on Peanut Butter Fingers on packing for Europe. She has some great tips on changing up accessories and cardigans to make outfits work multiple different ways. I definitely am using this as my bible for packing!
So where exactly are we going in Europe? Originally, Tom and I wanted to go to Italy and Greece but when a cheap flight to Lisbon Portugual came about, we jumped on that. So now we are starting in Portugal and making our way to Greece.
We are doing a lot of travelling in our time there, basically moving places every 2 days. While three and half weeks seems like a long time but there are so many places we wanted to see!
I’ll give you my full itinerary, partially for your interest sake but mostly so my Mom has a reference! 😉
Day 1-3: Lisbon, Portugal
Day 3-5: Madrid, Spain
Day 5-7: Venice, Italy
Day 7-9: Florence, Italy
Day 9-11: Cinque Terre, Italy
Day 11-13: Rome, Italy
Day 13-14: Athens, Greece
Day 14-18: We are taking a tour of mainland greece with a company with the highlights including Olympia, Delphi, Meteora
Day 18-20: Mykonos, Greece
Day 20-22: Santorini, Greece
Day 23: Athens
Day 24: Home
It’s going to be a whirlwind adventure for sure.
I will try to pop in and do a few updates on the trip while we are away but I won’t be posting regularly during that time. I am trying to get some guest bloggers lined up though so you will get a chance to learn from some other really great bloggers.
Have you ever been to any of these places in Europe – any tips on must see/do? Do you have trouble packing light?
P.S. If any bloggers are interested in guest posting for me just send me a message through my contact me page!
