Is it weird that I am really excited to have a new suitcase for our Italy trip? Jeremy doubts that I can fit everything in it that I need but I am determined to pack light. We are still debating what size/type of suitcase is appropriate for travel in Europe. I have heard to keep things small and light and I am willing to do laundry if necessary. I also think that the high temperatures will mean I don't need any heavy clothing so that should help!
If you've been to Europe, I'd love your input into the luggage debate. What size/type of suitcase did you take and what kind of day pack did you have along for touring?
I bought a 21" Hey's Velocity hard cover suitcase with spinner wheels and it's also slightly expandable width-wise. It's super small compared to my usual suitcases for traveling but I think it'll be best for train travel and hauling around Italian cities if we need to walk a few blocks from time to time. We aren't leaving until August so I have lots of time to test it out to make sure it fits everything I need.
So...what do you think? Does size matter?
