Have a dreamy European summer vacation just around the corner? 

Deciding what to pack for Europe takes some practice— especially if you’re packing for hot European summers with jam-packed itineraries. You need to pack for a variety of activities, but it’s also essential that you do your best to pack light and keep it to a carry on (if you hear this and think there’s no way, I can help! Check out this article about exactly how I pack for 2+ weeks in Europe in just a carry on, step by step).
