What kind of luggage

Jump to last reply

I'm doing my first trip to Europe but don't know what to pack in. I'm trying to pack light due to moving around so much. We'll be there about 2 1/2 weeks and sleeping in up to 10 different locations which means dragging luggage around a lot. I'm a pretty small person 5"3" 120 lbs and not overly muscled.
I'm trying to bring just one bag but don't know what kind would work best.
Small wheeled luggage,
backpack http://www.amazon.com/Dana-Designs-Moon-Goddess-Womens/dp/B000CC37U6
or backpack/luggage (has wheels and backpack straps)stylehttp://www.highsierrasport.com/ItemDetail?itemNum=AT206

Advice from experienced travelers would really help. Thanks in advance!

Here's some detail on our itinerary if it helps.
4/22 Stuttgart
4/23-24 Fussen & Munich
4/25-26 Salzburg
4/27 Innsbruck
4/28-4/29 St.Gallen/Appenzell (overnight train to Venice)
4/30 Venice
5/1-5/3 Somewhere in Italy - orginally thinking Florence & area
5/4-5/6 Rome
5/7 Fly home
