We have had lots of people asking how we packed for a year-long trip to Europe. The short answer is: we each took one pack and one smaller bag, and we did lots of research on what to put in them.
The long answer… well, I could talk for about five minutes just on how we arranged our bags. Which I did. In this video.
hacking creative editing, I have tried to spare you some of the extraneous details– and, ummm, some of my filler words– so hopefully now you’ll just get solid answers to your curious questions! This was filmed in the few free minutes we had the morning we left our brother/sister-in-law’s house for the airport in Pennsylvania. No redo’s or second shots so we’re going reeeeal candid here.
And if you think how we packed for a year-long trip to Europe is still interesting after this, stay tuned for a post later this week on the style forecast here in London as well as what we actually put inside our bags!
EDIT: We’ve gotten lots of questions on travel gear, and here is my biggest recommendation: PACKING CUBES!!
I mention them in the video and they are a sanity-saving must. Below are affiliate links to our favorites that we are currently using. Thanks for supporting the brands we love and helping to keep us on the road at the same time! (:
