TLS Vlog #17: What I Packed for Europe! (Part 1) @ jesslively.com/packforeuropevlogpart1

In this episode, I’m diving into the details of what I packed for Europe. After 40-50 hours of research beforehand, I narrowed my life down to the absolute essentials (and then some) for easy traveling. I’ll talk about the what and why behind my choices and how I prepared for everything from chilly Scotland to sizzling Spain. See a breakdown of my bags below!

    Interesting. I think I would have dumped the umbrella into the checked bag, and while I do take a water bottle, I don’t worry about other things like tea or coffee–part of the fun is going out, and anyway, most hotels provide it in the room.
    I also don’t bother with any “entertainment”–during the trans-Atlantic flight, I sleep, read (on my iPad) or watch movies, and when I’ve landed I have all the entertainment I need in exploring a new place.

  • My husband and I are moving to Turkey in September, but are spending a month in Spain beforehand. So this is helpful to think through some of our month-long travel gear! We always carry a French Press and hand grinder for coffee beans cause it helps us keep with our morning ‘routine’ anytime we travel. (P.S. You are welcome to come visit us in Izmir!)

  • This is so helpful, as I’ll be traveling to Europe for the first time this October. Is the Everlane anorak warm? I have a J. Crew raincoat but I don’t think it’s heavy enough for October in London. Thanks!

  • Katie

    Thanks for this Jess! I’m curious what brand your denim jacket is as well as the shirt you are wearing.

  • The Everlane Anorak is definitely not warm – very, very lightweight and thin. I’d pick a different one if you are looking for warmth. : )

    What’s the case you use to hold the headphones? I like that its hard sided AND curved corners. Thanks Jess!

  • The case came with the Bose headphones. : )

  • colleenfoxslack

    Thanks!!

  • It’s from David’s tea. : )
