    I was in Europe in June and it was really hot. In Serbia for instance when I landed 16th June it was 40 degrees. The coldest I experienced was northern western Europe, Brussels. I didn’t pack any jeans or jumpers but a pair of each would have be nice.

    Yeah it’ll be very warm during those months I wouldn’t be worried about it being cold in the places you’ve listed. But you can always pack something moderately warm just in case. I am doing European Experience starting July 12th and I plan to take just summer clothes.

    Other tips off the top of my head:

    Pack hand sanitizer (You don’t want to get sick on your trip!)
    Have a hangover pack (Berocca, Aspirin, Advil, Vitamin C etc etc)
    Have an overnight bag with all your toiletries you can take with you during short overnight stays
    Have a GOOD backpack you can take with you on the bus and when walking around cities etc
    Make sure your iPod is loaded with lots of music as there are long bus commutes

    Umm that’s all I can think of now I am sure others can add to it!
