Today I am fast forwarding to Christmas. I am talking about a requested packing list for spending Christmas in Europe. We as a family were supposed to spend Christmas in Europe this year but the show Tom is working on currently did not leave much room for a vacation and trying to save for it this summer was an uphill battle that we lost so we postponed.
Shortly after admitting defeat I received an email asking for help for how to pack light for this trip. She is unaccustomed to cold weather so I included lots of warm sweaters and layerable pieces which will help while acclimatizing. The trip is covering Edinburgh, Dublin, Belfast, Prague, Salzburg, and several of the Mountain Villages which are amazing at Christmas. They also will be skiing and snowboarding, but to cut down on packing decided that they will be renting everything that they needed once they get there. This is actually quite smart since all the pieces you would need would end up taking a whole suitcase of their own.
I included a versatile black dress for more formal occasions and a casual dress, several pairs of pants, and leggings that can be used to layer under dresses, for exercise, bed, and as a base layer under snow pants when skiing. A knit hat, scarf, and gloves along with a wool coat are the winter weather pieces to keep you comfortable while sightseeing and travelling. Packing light is possible even during the winter season with a little planning. Outfit options will be in Friday’s post.
What are your favourite things to pack on a winter vacation?
