    What countries are you visiting? And how crazy are texas winters? are they like cold? Tell me the countries yer visiting and I can tell you a bit more about what to take. But overall I’d go for wintercoat, hat, gloves, scarf, long sleeved stuff. Prepare for snow, rain, temperatures between 10 and –10 Celsius (even lower in Scandinavia). Guess it really depends on what you are used to I guess. Smiler<!-graemlin::)—>

    I went on this trip last winter and I’m used to crazy Virginia winters…it was cold, but I could deal with it. Take layers that will help and take stuff for rain just in case.

    You can find more details on what I did and packed on my travel blog review of the trip at

    and if haven’t booked yet let me know and I can get you $100 in excursion dollars!

    hey. i did discovery last december and had an awesome time. i’m from connecticut so the weather was pretty comparable. i don’t know what month you’re going but december was relatively mild i thought. some cities were colder than others. definitely pack layers, hat, gloves, and warm dry shoes. and definitely pack a waterproof jacket. when it rains you have no choice but to stay outside and explore. we all learned that in venice, gondola ride in the pouring rain. haha. i’d say it wasn’t below 20 anywhere. and when we were in rome it was like mid 50’s which was nice. have fun!
