Packing for six weeks has proven to be quite difficult.
I thought it would be easier than packing for a one week trip, because normally when I pack for a short trip, I have to plan out outfits and shoes, etc.
I thought this would be simpler.
Nope. Not simpler.
I'm bringing one large suitcase and a carry-on duffel bag.
I haven't put all of my clothes in the suitcase yet, but they are laid out neatly, ready to be put in.
We were told not to bring a lot of white clothes because they will turn grey there. This is bad for me because I wear white all the time!
So far, I've packed a ton of sundresses (cough14cough) because I figure they are lightweight and comfortable to wear. I've brought a few pairs of shorts and plenty of tops. I have a few cardigans for when its chilly and to visit different religious places that have a dress code. I haven't figured out how many pairs of shoes I'm bringing, but I'm working on that.
A lot of people suggested buying toiletries in Rome, but I decided just to bring mine for the sake of having it already when I get there. I hope that my toiletries don't weigh my suitcase down too much!
I still need to pack my carry-on and other things. It's a bit stressful, but hopefully I'll be able to get it all done!
Does anyone have any packing suggestions?
