European Encounter Winter packing

27 Aug 2011 Fyrefly_Faerie asked


I'll be doing the European Encounter (Winter) tour in early November and I have no clue what to pack, since there seems to be a wide variety of temperatures.
What are the best things to pack lightly (while not looking so touristy)? Will I need to bring my own hair dryer or would I be able to rent one? Are long johns really really necessary in the colder parts of the tour (Austria, Switzerland)? It seems useful until you go inside and then melt with all the layers.
