Still trying to get the concept of 'carry-on' only for our Europe trip!! I have myself, husband, daughter & nephew to think about - hopefully I will be confident enough by this June to help us all!! I've read and taken heed of the 'good shoes' posts - so for myself I've ordered two pairs of Keen CNX ballerina shoes (black & blackberry/purple). I've also ordered a secure cross-body purse, a converter/adapter plug-in set, a Merino wool shirt to try out at home before ordering more, and played with the PolyVore app to see how outfits can interchange. We will borrow a money belt from my dad (and probably order more) for passports, credit cards, ATM cards; but still not sure we can do this carry-on.
We travel in mid-June thru end of June and temps seem to range from rainy to cold to hot. Layering seems to be what we need to do. We are 'over packers' for most of our trips (didn't know this until I read all these posts) so layering seems the way to go.
So, umbrella, light jacket, layers seems the way to go. I also really would like to wear comfy Crocs (not the big bulky types but flats with enclosed toe/heel - but not sure if this will be a real faux pas...) and I have a microfiber head cloth for quick drying.
What else should I think about - both for men & women...
