Hence, my advice to all of you planning a trip to Europe would be to carry no more than one piece of baggage!!! Pack light and the key to packing light is to pack very little.
Spread out everything you think you might need on the living-room floor. Pick up each item one at a time and scrutinize it. Ask yourself if you really need it and if it is worth lugging around in Europe for three weeks.
Carrying excess luggage also marks you as a vulnerable and miserable tourist. If you are no longer the smart traveler, you are an instant attraction to pickpockets and thieves. The joy, happiness and pleasantness that you had expected out of your vacation will vanish. Travel will become a chore and a pain. But with less luggage you are up on your feet and gone in a jiffy.
Go casual, simple, and very light. Remember, in your travels you’ll meet two kinds of tourists — those who pack light and those who wish they had.
