As many of you know, I am not one for "packing light". LOL
I will be in Italy for 4 weeks. The first week I'll be in Venice with my GrapeHops buddies. Everything I need for the week is, are you ready? in a 20" carry-on bag!!!!!
In this little bag, I managed to pack:
Three pair of capris (wearing jeans on the plane)
2 pair sandals
Then I have 2 weeks in Bologna and 4 nights in Varenna and a night in Milano.
In the BIG BAG (I need to say, "God bless Briggs & Riley luggage") I have:
5 pair pants/capris
3 pair shoes/sandals
2 more hats
stuff for our group
My "personal item" is a large quilted bag which will contain my pillow (I need it on the flight), my purse with new i-Pad 2 inside, camera, jewelry, Italian cell phone, a hat for the sun, and snacks for the plane.
I am still contemplating bringing my paints and watercolor paper for my down time in Bologna and Lake Como!
Brad will be bringing more chargers/adapters, three of my shirts and the GPS!
