Well its nearly time to set off on our first europe trip, we are excited and nervous and itching to get going but hoping it doesn't all go by too fast.

We have challenged ourselves to only take what we can fit in our carry on backpacks. Its surprising how much you can fit in there, yet shoes seem to take up too much space...I wonder if we can go bare foot?

How does one pack for relaxing on a few Greek Islands, roaming the country side in Italy, looking chic on the French Riviera not to mention in down town Paris, gorging on chocolate in Belgium, admiring the windmills of the Netherlands, exploring castles and guzzling beer in Bavaria, and hiking the alps of Switzerland….in a carry on bag with a weight limit of 7kg?!?!?

We have packed mainly in black and white with highlights of colour with the attitude that if it's not absolutely essential (no what if scenarios) that we can buy it when we are there if we happen to need it. Choosing items that we can mix and match and layer if it gets cold. Only time will tell if we have thought of all the bare essentials.

Must get back to the trial run to see if it all fits without having to jump on it....
