Packing tips

Keep it small

 

Whatever the size of your bag, the chances are you'll manage to fill it to the max. So, opt for a small/medium-sized backpack or suitcase – that way you're restricted on how much stuff you can take!

Take multi-purpose items

 

Be a bit creative and the items you take with you can have more than one usage. Here are some examples: Shampoo can be used as shower gel and washing detergent, dental floss makes a line for drying clothes or a sarong doubles up as a beach towel.

Share your stuff

 

If there’s a bunch of you travelling together, why not share your things. Exchange books with your friends or with other travel buddies you meet along the way.

Go digital

 

Travelling bookworms should get their hands on an e-reader – usually much lighter and slimmer than a real book, you'll no longer have to break your back carting heavy books around! Store thousands of e-books that will keep you going for your entire European rail trip.
