This is my third trip to Europe over the past decade or so and to see how much I have changed in the "how much I pack" department... its pretty hysterical! My first trip when I studied abroad in Italy, I still roll my eyes at the thought of my GIGANTIC suitcase plus carry on that I wheeled up with for my short month stay. You live and you learn I guess!
