... AND bringing? Hmm, good question. You know the feeling – you're about to embark on your next trip, you stand there looking at your empty suitcase and don't know where to start. Whenever you go on holiday you might find that you left something important at home and brought something you didn't need after all. Want to save yourself some packing grief? Then you need a handy list like this one: a little overview of how to pack for a city trip over a long weekend.
London, Barcelona, Rome, ...
Europe has so many wonderful cities where you can experience a lot in a few days. If you're going by plane, a handy little suitcase with wheels or a quality backpack should be enough –that way you don't have to waste time or money checking in luggage at the airport. You should also bring another small bag or backpack to take as a day bag on sightseeing tours.
Now that you've settled on the size of your bag, it's time to think about the most important thing: what to put in! The first thing to remember is that you can buy almost anything at your destination if you forget it. Every city has plenty of places to shop. Keeping that in mind while you pack can reduce stress. But the following things definitely belong in every travel bag: passport, tickets, money or credit card, and any medications you take regularly. Of course you also need clothes, toiletries, and devices like your cellphone. As far as your wardrobe is concerned, less is more. Most of us tend to pack way too much – after all, you need to leave some room for souvenirs. An essential item for city trips is a pair of comfortable shoes and some rainy weather gear. It's not unusual to walk 10,000 steps or more a day on a city tour – and you're not always taking those steps under a sunny, blue sky. That's why protection against the rain is essential. Knirps offers a large selection of ultra-lightweight and compact umbrellas that can easily fit in any bag and pop open in a flash.
With these tips, nothing can stop you having a great city holiday – as the Dalai Lama says, "Once a year, go somewhere you've never been before." Bon Voyage!
