    I’m a little nervous about traveling by myself but seeing others who are too makes me feel better. Have you been to Europe before? What day do you get in?

    I was nervous too but it seems like a lot of people do these solo! I went to Europe a few years ago with my parents and saw parts of Italy and Greece so I’m super excited to see a lot of other countries this time! Have you been before? I think I’m getting in the day the tour starts…so leaving the US on the 8th and I’m gonna stay in London for longer at the end of the tour. What about you?

    So I was thinking about the trip and have no clue what to pack so I wanted your ideas…
    Are you bringing a suitcase or a big duffel bag thing?
    Are you going to bring a hair straightener?
    Are you going to bring heels for at night or just a nice pair of sandals?

    Lemme know if you have any thought about this!

    I think I’m gonna bring a suitcase cuz from all of the reviews I’ve read on here, those are just easier to handle. My hair is stick straight so I’m not bringing anything extra there haha. As for shoes, I’m just bringing cute sandals to wear and leaving it at that…takes up less room.
    So do we have to bring sleeping bags and towels and stuff since we’re on the budget trip?

    I’ve been thinking about this too! I am bringing a rolling duffle, easy to carry if I need to and easy to roll. I am bringing my straightener and blowdryer but thats the only hair things I am bringing. I am 5’1, so I’m bringing heals of some kind… but I saw on one of the discussions that they recommend wedges, so I will probably look in to that.

    I think they supply the sleeping bag but I would bring a towel. I’m bringing a ‘quick dry’ towel.

    Rolling duffle, that’s a good idea! And I’m really glad that they provide the sleeping bag…I was worried about how to make room to pack that! haha
    By the way, how old are you all? I’m 21.

    I’m a little creeped out about the sleeping bag… but i’m sure it will be fine. I’m 25.

    I’m getting super excited too!!! We’re getting so close to leaving!! I’m graduating from college this week and then I’m gonna start getting the little things too.
    And I didn’t even think about a facebook group…we’ve mostly just been talking on here so I guess no one thought to make one! You can though and let us know what it’s called if you want to!
