So I leave for Greece tomorrow.
My goodness, time has flown by.
I spent all day packing and leaving things clean and tidy at home.
I actually researched quite a bit about the most efficient way to pack. I mean, I AM going for 4 weeks. What I wanted to make sure is that I had a few options that I could mix and match to get a ton of outfits with a small about of pieces. I also had to consider the weather and the conditions we would be in. We are planning on visiting a few churches, so I needed modest dresses. We are taking a few overnight ferries, which means pants and a jacket. All of this together I also had to factor in the nightmare of having an overweight bag.
I also had to factor in that our trip has two parts: an apartment part and a backpacking part. So, don’t let the big suitcase deceive you. One half is clothes, the other half is backpacking stuff. The great part is we can keep our stuff in the flat in Athens while we island hop.
Packing is making me so nervous! Will I have enough stuff? Do I have too much stuff? Honestly, it is really hard to fit part of your life into a suitcase. (There is a life lesson in there I am sure.)
Here is my amazing packing result:
