Packing for 8 Weeks Abroad

Packing for 8 Weeks Abroad

Hi! I am studying abroad in Italy for 8 weeks and I thought I would share my packing list and how I used the rolling method when packing my clothes. I am in Italy from end of March to middle of May so the weather is fairly nice but it gets chilly in the shade. Especially, when you are walking through the narrow streets it's like a windy tunnel. Think about packing layering pieces like a blanket scarf, cardigans and jackets. I didn't bring enough so I had to buy some when I got there. Also, leave your heels at home its not worth breaking an ankle over it, all the streets are cobblestone!! I have tripped so many times just wearing flats and I have only been here for 3 days. In the gallery of pictures, I showed you what I put in my carry on and how I packed my checked bag. In my checked bag, I had two rows of rolled clothes, the rolling method really works I fit a lot of clothes in that suitcase.
