I am travelling with four travel books (3 city and 1 country guide) They take up some room and are a little heavy but I need most of the information in the books. How do you go about packing travel guides. Rick suggests taking the pages you need but that includes most of the books and if I start to tear them apart I fear I may lose some information. WIll the books fall apart once you start taking pages out? What is your suggestion?
I was also hoping to bring some boots for an occasional hike but they are kind of large. Can you hike in Italy using sneakers? (my walking shoes are decent but a little worn and I am not in a good place to buy more shoes)
