Bug spray!  We just got back from our Destination Wedding in Jamaica and the mosquitoes are bad!

@Jullsz:  I went to europe for a month 2 years ago.  When I pack to go away I do it over a few days, I add everything, then take it out and cut it down slowly bit by bit after I realise somethings I wont need.  My rules for myself are to only take well fitting clothes (as I have made the mistake of taking things that no longer fitted well lol) so try everything on before you go. And dont take things you hardly wear at home but think you will wear them away as you wont wear them either when away.  Lie your clothes out on the bed in matched outfits, so you can make lots of outfits from a select few pieces by mixing and matching. With make up and toiletries I sometimes take bottle and jars that are nearly empty so I can discard them at the end of the trip to get more space for buying things. Also some things like body moisterisers you can get from hotels.  Have fun!

Well I would check the weather… depending where are you going to Europe as the south is already warmed up a bit and if you are planning to spend most of the day outside a good suncream will be needed. 

Also good walking shoes if you are planning to site see a lot 🙂

I live in Europe and we travel all the time.  That being said the weather changes a lot.  From cold to warm, chilly and rainy then sunny.  I usually make sure to bring something for the chilly nights….went camping a couple of weekends ago and while I got sunburned during the day, it got down into the 50s at night so I was glad I brought something besides tank tops and shorts. 

Also since we travel a lot, I usually decide if it’s a brown or black trip….I keep all my outfits in the same color scheme and then bring a coordinating purse and shoes (usually boots) that match…it’s made it so much easier to pack and I’ve got my 1 week vacations into less than a backpack. 

I also put all my toiletries/makeup into smaller containers so I don’t have to worry about the airline size allowances.  And I bring a lot….makeup, cleansers, contact lens stuff.  Darling Husband and I try to share shampoo, conditioner, soap, toothpaste, etc which cuts down on a lot of our stuff.
