Summer trip - packing light & buying gifts

Jump to last reply

I am taking my first 3 week trip to Europe this summer. I'll be traveling throughout the month of June. During my time I'll be in Germany (Frankfurt, Nuremberg, and Berlin) , The Netherlands (Amsterdam), and the UK.

While in Germany I will be staying with people and will most likely meet friends of the couple I am staying with. I don't want to offend and I've read that local dress style in Germany tends to be on the conservative side. I need ideas on what type of clothes to pack that will be acceptable as well as comfortable for long days of exploration. I have a few wrap dresses, shorts, t-shirts, sneakers, and ballet flats or flip flops but Im not sure what else to pack. Any ideas would be helpful.

Also, I'm aware that I can't bring home all of Europe in my bag - but I would like to bring back a few momentos. I saw where some people bring an extra backpack empty and then fill it as they go.... others have suggested mailing items home (albeit more expensive than paying the extra luggage fee). any ideas on this would be helpful....
