Backpack or Suitcase or Both...

Jump to last reply

So I'm traveling aboard in just over a week...Going to Berlin, Austria and Italy(Florence, Venice and Rome). I'm trying to decide WHAT to pack in..

Now my plan right now is to pack a small roll-suitcase(it's very small and can actually fight a lot because the top expands)...that would be for my clothes.

But I also want to bring my backpack. It's just a regular backpack....It could fit my very small netbook computer and all the other things I'd be bringing along..

I also want to make sure I have something to carry my computer around with me as a I walk. I'd like to spend at least an hour a day, sitting a coffee, taking in the sights, relaxing and writing. Writing is a big part of my trip.

But I can't imagine walking around each day with a backpack strapped to my back, so I guess I'll need to buy a day bag...My netbook is small and light, so just need to find one that fits that and my kindle(where all my travel books/maps are stored)...

Now I some people get those big backpacks and just travel with those but I'm not sure if I want to do that...or can even afford it. I'd imagine my clothes getting wrinkle...plus keep all my things together seems like a recipe for disaster. Can I really put all things in one bag? And I'd need to buy a new backpack...and I have no clue what sort of backpack to buy. Definitely don't want to buy anything I'd have to check.

So yeah would a backpack and a small rolling suitcase be too much? Plus whatever day bag I buy. What's the best way to go about this if I'm bringing a netbook?
