Packing for Europe
What to pack in your backpack or suitcase all depends on the time of the year you’re arriving as well as which destinations you’re going to. There’s no doubt the high season in many European countries is the summertime, which stretches over June, July, and August. Many countries will still be warm sooner and later than these particular months. High season in Europe, means really busy destinations, so if you want to avoid the busiest seasons, you might want to consider going in the spring/autumn. But Europe should not be missed, just because it’s autumn or winter. If you’re into snow-covered mountains, skiing or snowboarding, there are a lot of opportunities in countries like Austria, France, and Italy. In the more northern parts like Scandinavia, there are some pretty epic winter landscapes as well.
