I’m normal traveling with one continue, but with all the recent reports of lost checked baggage and the chaos of summer travel at every airport, I’ve doubled my place. I don’t have any chance! Or at least I told myself that until I tried to pack for eight days vacation To Italy. Let me tell you: It’s a process of tweaking everything to make sure everything fits into my Going away pack. You may think that there are No way I was able to pack 21 pcs, but I assure you it’s true. Everything is light and thin for high heat, so it all rolls up without taking up much space. And I can carry five pairs of shoes because most of the sandals are flat packed. No need for vacuum sealed bags here!
Since going back (sadly all vacations have to come to an end), I think I’ve pretty much nailed the packing situation since only one item broke. Not to brag, but that could be a record for me. Schedule is Rome for four days (I definitely recommend staying W Hotel while you’re there!), Naples for one, and Sorrento for three. If you are thinking of traveling to Italy or packing for a country with similar weather this time of year, here’s everything that made a difference in my small but powerful suitcase.
