Europe Packing List

Today is the day I finally stop talking about this trip and actually leave for Iceland, en route to Copenhagen.  And it has finally hit me that this is actually happening.  I am nervous and excited and ready for a new adventure.  Before I go, I need to pack, which is a project in and of itself.  While it’s been a bit stressful with everything else I have going on lately, I really don’t mind packing.  With the search for the perfect hiking boots that also had to be suitable for wearing out and my best attempt at packing a travel capsule wardrobe, it’s been a fun process.  What’s been the most difficult is trying to plan for the unpredictable climates of Iceland, while still trying to bring clothes I’ll be happy wandering around Copenhagen in. I had to edit the list down quite a bit because I am trying to pack lightly, and I think I’ve finally got it down.   I’ll be bringing my Samsonite rolling suitcase (which will be my checked bag), a backpack (my carry-on) and my Madewell Tote (personal item) with me.  So, without further ado, here is my Europe Packing List, broken down by bag:
