A lot of people do year long trips where they experience a variety of seasons. When I went to Europe I had to pack for just 2 confirmed days of cold because of going up the mountain in Switzerland when it was -2°C.
My recommendation would be to pack clothes that are capable of being layered for winter time that way they aren’t taking up wasted space in your bag for months. The other easy thing to do would be just taking a hoodie/sweatshirt to add for that extra layer of protection which would help on an off-season chilly night too.
As for weather, check out places like weather.com and major cities historical weather charts for the most accurate information.
I would pack primarily for the summer, which means you will want a little bit of fall/winter type of clothes – pants and long sleeve shirts. Once you start to hit the cooler weather you can ship that stuff home since you wont be needing it. Also by then you’ll probably be sick of that stuff. For winter clothes you could either buy stuff, many people find the US is a cheap place to shop for clothes. OR you could have a package set up when you leave and have it shipped to you at the end of your stint at the summer camp or the end of your tour. That will take a little coordination and may cost more though.
Croatia and Italy in October could be a little hit or miss, maybe warm, maybe cool, don’t think it will be cold.
November though I would expect it to be fairly cold by then, maybe not freezing, but you’ll want a decent coat or jacket.
Thanks guys, looks like I’ll be hitting the shops on the road <!--graemlin::)-->
