This month Travel Fashion Girl has an awesome Guest Blogger from Canada: Vanessa Yates! Vanessa’s traveled all over the world and will be sharing her personal travel beauty and packing tips. She’s currently traveling around SE Asia before starting a job in Malaysia next year. This is her first post for the month which is a great one if you’re backpacking Europe!
You’ve read about it, dreamt about it and almost everyone you know, knows someone who has done it: Backpacking Europe. It is almost its own culture now!
After working a countless number of extra hours you have finally decided to take the plunge spend the money and backpack through Europe. It took you weeks to plan the perfect itinerary that you edited at least 20 times and now you are moving on to the hardest planning part: the Europe packing list.
“How do I pack enough clothing to get me through my entire trip backpacking through Europe?”
I too struggled with this the first time I traveled Europe. I spent 5 months in the incredible continent – hopefully these packing tips will help make the process a bit easier for you. If you’re planning to travel by train, also check out this packing list on how to pack for an inter-railing trip through Europe.
Don’t forget, shopping haunts you all over Europe so save some space for new purchases.
I have used this backpacking (packing) list every time I travel and I have always been more than prepared. Anything else you will need you can get along the way!
Congrats on your adventure and have fun in Europe!

TFG recommends: Anatomie Wear makes amazing travel pants that are functional and also look sophisticated which work perfectly for Europe. I’ve worn their Skyler travel pants with heels for drinks in LA, in Spain with boots for sightseeing, to play in the snow with wellies in the UK, for every day travel in Thailand with flip flops, and also to go for hikes with trainers. They are the ultimate multi-functional travel pants that offer you form, function, and fashion (and a good cost per wear value)!
