Few people are inherently gifted with the ability to pack light; knowing what to take and what to leave behind is truly a learned talent. Lugging 50 pounds of baggage around is no picnic and will put the kibosh on the best of moods.

The enlightened explorer travels freely. She whizzes through airport security, lithely pops on the bus with her single piece of luggage in tow and has no problem navigating those tricky subway turnstiles.

Doesn’t sound like you? No worries; I’m sharing my best vacation packing tips today!

    Traveling to France for a sight seeing trip. How would you advise dressing for tourist sites in Paris?

  2. Karen says:

    As in most of Europe they wear dark jeans, casual pants or skirts with short heeled boots or sturdy comfortable flats. Usually only tourist wear shorts and tennis shoes. Parisians in particular wear a lot of black or neutral. Think more along the tailored lines instead of oversized and super comfy. Accessorize with a scarf and you can’t go wrong.
