Packing for a Winter Trip

Last night I packed my bags for a quick trip to Germany and Austria. I’ll only be gone five days, so that’s not much in the way of packing. During the last few months, I’ve written posts about my new packing philosophy and how it is affected by a “dressed down” Europe. Traveling in the winter adds a little bulk to my suitcase, but I was able to throw all my stuff in a still have room to spare. Here’s my packing list:

Jeans- 2 pair

Long-Sleeved Cotton Shirts – 4

4 wicking tee shirts.

2 light-weight cashmere sweaters

3 pair of socks and 1 pair of moisture wicking “under” socks

1 pair light-weight silk long underwear

1 pair gortex boots

4 pair underwear

1 thigh-length wool “pea” coat

Hat, gloves, muffler.


Camera, cords, cables, laptop
