Dear Fellow Purse Bloggers, Let me preface this post by stating that there have been a few threads that I have ever started where I have ever really NEEDED an urgent response, and this is one of them! I need your help guys! So, I am days away from a trip to Europe that I have been anticipating for months, my bedroom looks like a clothes bomb has just gone off within it, and I am literally having nightmares about what bag to take. (Not to mention the fact that I recently re-injured my knee, so now I will be travelling as a cripple -- has anyone had kneecap problems?) Anyway, here are the facts: 1. Sept 11- Oct. 7 2. Germany, Venice, Croatia, Paris (Fashion week!) 3. travelling by car, may be staying and so-so places or bed and breakfasts. Questions: What bag would you take? Would you take an expensive bag (it would be so great to tote something beautiful around the world). Or would you be afraid of damage, theft, loss etc? If you would take an expensive bag, which one is great for travel, and goes with nearly everything? Especially DURABLE, and does not scratch/ damage easily? If you would take a less expensive bag, can you name a bag that still evokes class under $200? If anyone cares to be really really kind.... What sort of packing list would you have in terms of clothing? Does anyone know great hotels in the areas I mentioned? Sorry if I am a little panicked... preflight jitters.
