    I just returned from two weeks in northern Europe. It was spring (actively snowing at home, about 10 days after snow there), which meant bulkier, warmer jackets, scarves and ankle boots were needed. Tulip and cherry blossom season does tend to be cool.

    I stuck to black and grey. Most days i wore jeans and my black suede Sketchers on those cobblestones. Cardigans over tank tops or short-sleeved knit tops did the trick. I carried it all in a 25″ Delsey.

    Spring is a wonderful time to travel to Europe. Have fun!

    One of the key things to remember that helps to minimize the number of items you bring is that you’re not seeing the same people every day (other than travel partners) so you can wear the same outfit several times in a short period of time.
    Soak wash ( comes in single use packs that are great for washing undies in the sink, or 90 ml/3 oz bottles for multiple use.

    I am excited to see how you make this happen. I have a lot to learn about packing light!

    Have a great trip! I have always been a peripatetic person–travel is my middle name! And yes–neutrals and colorful scarves, a colorful sweater,–all good for being on the road. It’s amazing how many outfits you can create out of just a few basics. And I also usually wear a jacket on the plane and take a wrap. I can always buy a pretty scarf or item on the road as a keepsake from a trip.

    I will look forward to your travels–enjoy!! I love heading out on an adventure.

    Beth is there any chance you could show us how to tie the black and white scarf like you did?? It looks fabulous.
