Ok, it's just about time to start my packing for real (not on paper or in my mind)! Looking for suggestions or info about potential weather temps to cover the different locations - especially so I can try to keep the packing light!!
Our dates/locations are:
June 12-16: all day/night airport travel on 12; LONDON 13-16 (capris/lightweight shirt with light jacket)?
June 16-19; travel to PARIS - again, capris/lightweight shirts with light jacket)?
June 19-22; travel to Crans-Montana & Zermatt SWITZERLAND - here is where long pants might be needed?? Shirt/jacket combo for day. Do I need a heavier jacket or maybe just a vest??
June 22-25; travel to Seefeld & Innsbruck, AUSTRIA; capris? Long pants?
*day trip to Venice - capris/lightweight shirt (17-hour coach bus travel day to/from Seefeld). I'm guessing Venice will be hotter than Austria??
June 25-27; Rothenburg, GERMANY - back to capris vs long pants here?
My base packing list looks like this so far:
1 pair long black pants (stretchy/comfy but look like slacks so multi-purpose I believe)
1 pair jeans (spandex/Cotten blend so not too heavy)
2 pair Capri pants - one black and nicer; one a denim pair (again cotton blend so lighter)
3 merino wool camis - will likely wear one each day under my shirts
2 nice sleeveless tops to be worn with lightweight 'swing' jacket (no bare arms for me!)
2 three-quarter sleeve tops
2 short sleeve shirts that are silky/poly/synthetic (not cotton) - can be worn alone or with swing jacket
2 'swing' jackets
2 pair black shoes (will work for day/evening- but are not water resistant)
2 pair compression sox for flights/any potential foot swelling
Would the above (minus the under-garments/sleep wear, which of course I will take), potentially cover all the days we travel and the possible temperature variances? I have a rain jacket - but I think it might take up too much room/not be worn enough to justify taking. Except for Switzerland - is that where I need to plan for more warmth? Especially visiting the Matterhorn area? But I have a vest that I could take for extra warmth.
I planning on my merino camis to work their magic of 'warm when cold, cool when hot' and the swing jackets can be taken off if I get too warm and should fit in purse.
Any weather tips for these locations in mid-to-late June would be great, along with any tips on any clothing item I might add - not sure I need to subtract - but who knows!! :)
