    im not sure if the Highlights is a hotel tour? if it’s not, bring a sleeping bag, even though it’s hot during the day it gets quite cold most nights. i was silly enough to not bring a sleeping bag, fortunately i “borrowed” a blanket i found in a room in barca and took it with me for the rest of the trip :P

    I just shoved mine in the bag every morning, worked like a charm.

    You will need a sleeping bag for the tour, not so important to pack it up every day you can just take it on the bus with your or fold it on top of your suitcase as it’ll squish pretty well.

    I just bought a compact sleeping bag off ebay, it only weighs 1kg and is rated for 0 degree temps, and it squishes up really small – something that will come in handy
