I've read through several of the threads and have noted some tips for packing. But would like some specific feedback for our trip. I know its early but I have time to think about it right now!
We are a family of 6. Parents with 4 kids 18, 17, 14, 11.
5 nights in each location beginning in Amsterdam the last week of May, then to Paris, and lastly BO area of Switzerland. We do have a washer & drying in each location. And was hoping each of us would just have a backpack, no suitcases.
I'm thinking through the variety of temps we might encounter.
I feel like we will need our hiking boots for BO but they are so heavy & bulky?! Thoughts?
We won't do major hikes but would like to be outside as much as the weather allows in switzerland.
Do you think the kids will be good with just a fleece if its cool at any point? Or better with a waterproof outer shell?
The shoes the kids will wear mostly and on the flight will be their sneakers I'm guessing.
I have very comfortable ballet flats so I'm not in sneakers in Paris. Just can't do it! And hubby and I might want to go to a nicer dinner in Paris.
And if we have to bring a rolling suitcase is it a major hassle with train travel? Mostly I want something to have to take souvenirs home!
Thanks for recommendations.
