Travels: Over Packing...Part Two
How many pairs of shoes do you take? It probably depends on what you're doing and where you're going. Ideally, you could get by with two pair. Wear one pair for walking and pack one for going out at night.
If that doesn't fit your trip, you may need to pack an additional pair. Other than that...you're probably overpacking. If you're going hiking in the Alps...you might need yet another pair. It depends on your trip. Keep in mind, you really don't need a different pair for each day. Save some room in your suitcase by having the right shoes for your trip.
How many outfits do you pack? You can pack less bottoms and more tops for a change of pace. Think about lightweight, washable fabrics. These can be washed at night and will be dry by morning. Another benefit...if you roll your lightweight clothes, they don't take up much room in your suitcase.
Have you ever packed an outfit or a top that you never wear at home? Maybe it's not your favorite color or it isn't a style you like. Chances are...if you don't wear it at home, you probably won't wear it on vacation. Leave it home...
