Packing List

I'm all packed except my toothbrush and some of my paper documents that I need to print off and it all fit in the one backpack and my purse. Whew and there's room for expansion (ie shopping) while I'm gone. I do plan on shipping stuff home occasionally and I know if I need I can buy a cheap suitcase in Europe because on the way home I'm allowed 2 checked bags but I figure the less I start out with the better. I'm really trying to travel light but prepared for any actuality. I think I've found a good balance and it helps to start with a great travel backpack from MEC. My month long trip and experiences in Europe last winter really helped me with this too. I also am super organized thanks to Kathryn's help and lots of pencil cases of different types to hold and organize things within my pack.
