Does anyone have a packing list for a two week trip to Spain in October?

Jump to last reply

Hi all,

We leave for Spain next Tuesday (!!) and I'm trying to organise my packing this week - this is a much longer trip than I typically take so I'm struggling a bit.

We're spending two weeks in Spain - the first week traveling from Madrid to Cordoba to Granada (each for 2 or 3 nights) and then a full week in Nerja in an apartment with a washing machine. We are checking a large backpack and I'll carry a smaller backpack and my husband will have a small duffel with our electronics and books. (Books are a real challenge - I read a lot and would typically bring a book for every two days - but for a 2 week trip that's a bit difficult!)

I know my original list is too large, any thoughts?

Hiking Sneakers
Hiking Sandals
White flats
Sandals for beach

2 Jeans (I only wear jeans)
1 Jean capris
2 Bright coloured skirts

1 black cardigan
2 black tanks
1 white tank
1 pink tank
1 white t-shirt
1 black t-shirt
1 coloured t-shirt

Swimsuit cover-up
Socks, etc. for 1 week
Waterproof shell

My difficulty is that it's showing around 60 degrees in Madrid and 85 in Cordoba... so I need stuff for all the possibilities in between.

I typically live in jeans and t-shirts and have lots of problems with my feet so the shoes seem necessary - they just take up so much room! We are super budget travelers and stay in hostels and never go to fancy places, so none of that is necessary. This plus my toiletries won't fit in the bags so I have to cut something out.

Oh yeah - I'll wear the hiking sneakers, jeans, cardigan, jacket and one of the shirts on the plane but obviously will have to carry them around for the rest of the week that we're traveling around.
