CLOTHES TO TAKE - Photos attached
9 Sep 2007
hi all, i did 25 day European Escapade ...had plenty of chances to pay to have our washing done.<BR><BR>If anyone wants advise on anything regarding contiki im happy to help!<BR><BR>noticed there are always alot of posts about what to wear on the more dressy nights out in Europe and just about what clothes to take in general, i was also curious before i did my tour. so ive attached photos to make it a little easier.<BR><BR><B>DRESSIER OCCASIONS</B><BR>As it was summer, alot of the girls wore dresses, but also black pants were good. I took a pair of black pants and 4 dressy tops for my 25 day tour...also a great idea was a 3/4 black cardi to take out at night.<BR><BR>definately opt for a comfy pair of strappy shoes for summer - heels are a bad idea.<BR><BR>guys - take 1 tie that will match all the shirts you take. it will take up next to no space.<BR><BR><A HREF="http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v39/nikki7/holiday9.jpg" TARGET=_blank>http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v39/nikki7/holiday9.jpg</A><BR><BR><A HREF="http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v39/nikki7/holiday8.jpg" TARGET=_blank>http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v39/nikki7/holiday8.jpg</A><BR><BR><B>CASUAL NIGHTS OUT</B><BR>Most girls wore jeans, shorts or casual dresses. The guys went with jeans or other pants/shorts.<BR><BR><A HREF="http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v39/nikki7/holiday30.jpg" TARGET=_blank>http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v39/nikki7/holiday30.jpg</A><BR><BR><A HREF="http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v39/nikki7/holiday20.jpg" TARGET=_blank>http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v39/nikki7/holiday20.jpg</A><BR><BR><B>BUS DAYS</B><BR>You are literally on the bus all day, most of the time you just want to sleep. Its really all about what you're comfortable in, some wore jeans, shorts etc...but most of us wore track pants<BR><BR><B>FREE DAYS</B><BR>Days spent exploring the city...Most girls wore casual drsses, shorts, jeans etc and t shirts/ tank tops.<BR>guys wore shorts, jeans etc and t shirts.<BR><BR><A HREF="http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v39/nikki7/holiday103.jpg" TARGET=_blank>http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v39/nikki7/holiday103.jpg</A><BR><BR><B>SHOES</B><BR>*just take 3* fight the temptation to take more than this, i assure you you will pick more shoes up along with way.<BR><BR>take a pair of thongs/flip flops i wore these most of the time as it was hot, get havianas as they dont hurt your feet<BR><BR>1 pair walking shoes...i took my cons, something that you are comfortable walking/bike riding etc in.<BR><BR>1 pair 'going out shoes', i took some black strappy wedges, these were awesome as they are super light, dont have a heel to get stuck in the nasty cobble stones<BR><BR><B>SHOPPING</B><BR>Rely on bringing your bottoms (jeans, short etc) from home but dont go overboard on your tops...London & all over Europe there are some awesome cheap shops...eg H&M, top shop etc that you'll go crazy in for tops, you can buy them and wear them on tour.<BR><BR>If your doing a concept tour like i did, where most of the time you are staying in cabins at campsties, take some sort of casual dress to wear to and from the showers...they are a pain in the butt and you always get all your new clothes wet...so wear the dress or shorts or whatever to and from the showers and get dressed in your room.
