For two weeks in Greece I really didn’t want to bring a ton of stuff, in my backpack I have;
2 tank tops (white, army green)
2 t-shirts (light blue, navy blue)
1 long sleeve shirt (white floral button up)
1 sweater (red cashmere)
1 shorts (army green)
1 skirt (tie dye blue)
1 dress (cherries)
2 scarfs (sea blue, purple)
4 socks, 4 underwear, 2 bras, 1 yoga pants
1 jacket (black)
1 sandals (pictured below)
1 street shoes (adidas)

Just make sure all your pieces can be worn together, they are wrinkle resistant and light to carry. I simply wash a few pieces in the sink every couple of days though there is always a laundromat option in most places as well.

mini toiletries, towel, pillowcase
Avoid bringing expensive, nice things as you’ll just worry, wreck or lose them. Next time I think I will leave my ipod and computer behind and get a micro fibre travel towel to cut down on weight. Also if your budget allows most hostels give linen and a towel for 1 euro each for your duration.
What’s in your travel bag?
