  • Packing for Winter

    Amsterdam What to Pack

    Pare your crap down & pack light! I work for an airline loading freight & luggage & have found a travel-type backpack to be the best of all worlds. Travel-type packs have the option of protecting the straps & sholder harness behind a zippered cover. Check out LL BEAN, or or any outdoor store. Trust me, strapes & loose gear get torn off ALL...

    you must wear comfortable walking shoes or lightweight rubber shoes while going on a jaunt here in the fabled Eternal Eternal City of Rome and you can even use a walking cane is you need it to walk around as the area is quite packed full of hordes of tourists like me and most of the attractions can only be accessed by walking as the hop on hop on...

  • Summer - Winter Clothes

    A big handbag which doesnt keep falling off your shoulder! Not only is it a pain, it also isnt safe from bag snatchers. Bag should be big enough to carry camera, papers, travel guide, water, juice, a thick shawl/sweater for when it gets chilly later in the day, a sandwich for when the only food you can find is expensive and not that great -like in...

    I thought I was prepared and packed Dramamine, Rolaids & Tylenol. I don't have allergies so I did pack any medicine for that.

I took it but it would work only slightly. I...

  • Packing List

    Dublin What to Pack

    Bring a Bag for shopping. They do not give out plastic bags, only paper. These will not hold up after a whole day of walking around. I would bring a cloth bag with handles, so that those souvenirs will find a comfy place. Temple Bar streets are not the cleanest, so shoes that can be cleaned in the wash are best. band aids for blisters from walking ...

  • Good walking shoes & warm clothes

    Brugge What to Pack

    Lock it up with a pad lock folks. No joke! Take some crapy clothes with you. Then replace them with new cool new ones you buy alone the way. Donate you old ones to a hostel. Bring cold meds. They are hard to find in little towns. And of coarse there’s this old one: “Lay out all the clothes you want to take with you. Take out half the clothes and...

  • Weather

    Munich What to Pack

    Munich has a continental climate. However, because the city is located near the Alps, it is likely to rain often. Thunderstorms also often seem to appear out of the blue. Make sure you take your umbrella as well as long sleeved shirt and trousers in summer - just in case. The range of temperatures between day and night or summer and winter can...

  • Beach Holidays

    Crete Island What to Pack

    Even if you have a decent base tan the intense Sun on Crete can burn you in no time at all if you don't use sunblock. And if you wait to buy it until you get to Crete the incredibly high prices for it will make you regret not bringing your own. Fortunately we brought plenty, so we did not have to buy any there. Make sure you apply it first thing in...

  • General advices

    Moscow What to Pack

    Despite the usual snowy image of Russia, summers in Moscow are hot, usually upwards of +25, and frequently over +30. Hence, pack plenty of summer clothing - especially as cheaper fashion such as, say, H&M, is harder to come by. And, in general, Moscow is expensive where clothes are concerned, designer or not. Comfortable shoes are again a must, but...

  • Clothing

    Madrid What to Pack

    There's a craZy obsession in this city among adults and children alike for any kind of bag or case that's attached to wheels and pulled along. There are plenty of unlicensed wheelie-case drivers in the city, so I suggest that we need not encourage more!! Of course, on a more practical note, be prepared for plenty of stairs in the metro, so make...

  • Clothing

    Dubrovnik What to Pack

    The women in Dubrovnik really seem to go all out, especially in the evening. Of course there are plenty of scruffy tourists too, but if you subscribe to the "when in Rome" philosophy, bring your poshest clothes and shoes.

  • Weather

    Hamburg What to Pack

    If you visit in the winter (we went there in January) be sure and pack plenty of warm and waterproof gear. there is an extremely biting wind and it can rain and snow a fair bit. I suppose it is only to be expected bering in mind how near the Baltic it is. As always, do not forget to pack the camera. I was only using a small compact (one of the...

  • Clothes

    Saint Petersburg What to Pack

    For a summer trip to St. Petersburg, pack a light jacket (Spring or Autumn-weight) for when the sun goes down or when it rains. Take clothes that you can layer and peel off as it gets warmer. The touristic sights are walkable only in comfortable shoes and dry weather. But bring the umbrella, it will definitely come handy!

    Sofia What to Pack

    I would suggest you to carry little luggage because here you can find almost everything and for very cheap prices. The climate is temperate so it depandes on the season. The winter usually is very cold and the summer often very hot. There are plenty of drug-stores here so I believe you can find almost everything you'd need. A camera would be...

  • Combined Suggestions

    Edinburgh What to Pack

    We were greeted, on leaving the train at Edinburgh, with a very cold wind, and we all did our best to pull jackets or sweaters from our luggage. (This was in May.)

  • Guidebook

    Bucharest What to Pack

    Unfortunately, I discovered this guidebook just as i was leaving Bucharest. It looks better and more comprehensive than any other major guidebook. I purchased it at the Mr. Tripp office located at Calea Victoriei 70. I only wish I had been able to stay a bit longer and take one of the escorted trips on offer here. Their website is...

  • Rainy Days

    Manchester What to Pack

    Manchester is quite flat in the city centre so you can bring wheeled suitcase with you. You see a lot of people wheeling suitcases around in the early hours of the morning near picadilly train station. If you are travelling around on buses, metro, trains etc I would recommend wearing a bag pack as it is easier to travel with a rucksack rather than...

  • Climate

    Skopje What to Pack

    Bring an empty bag to carry all the stuff you are going to buy. I spent 4 days in Skopje in early June, at it was already between 35 and 40 degrees during the day.

The SIT later became obsolete, when it was replaced by the Euro. As of June 2007, 1 Euro is worth approx. $1.42 Canadian, or $1.33 USD.

  • Rain Gear

    Cork What to Pack

    Cork is probably one of the wettest places in Ireland so an unbrella is a must. Don't let that put you off though as it's also one of the sunniest - you just need a brolly for the showers!! Pop into Pennys or Dunnes on Patrick Street (the main street) for a cheap one if you're forgetful like me and have long since lost your last brolly :)

  • Weather

    Bergen What to Pack

    As less bags as possible as you'll be tempted to walk a lot... Usually, on the western coast of Norway is raining but the temperature is not so low (it could be between 7-15 deg. C in May or even 20). Try to find a jacket (and some trousers) as "water proof" as possible and you don't need more than a normal pullover or a shirt under it. It could...

  • Rain Gear

    Limerick What to Pack

    Most everyone when they think of Ireland they think of rain, rain and more rain but it's not always like that. If you are coming during the summer it is best to bring a mixture of clothing. This year we had very good weather during the summer months with only a couple of rainy days. So it was shorts and t-shirts for most everyone. Just to be on...

  • Windproofs & sweater

    Malmö What to Pack

    I wasnt wrapped up warm enough.As Copenhagen had been pretty mild that morning, I figured I'd be ok, but there is one hell of an icy chill from the sea! So put on your woollies :) Picture of Malmo port

On his trip Tony visits many irish places and their unique people. The book is easy to read and gets you...

  • Bring a book

    Piran What to Pack

    After Yugoslavia is a marvellous book to either take with you or to read before you go. It offers impartial information on the regions history, both recent and past, as well as recounting the authors journey. It's written by Zoe Bran and published by Lonely Planet. Easily the best travel book I've read this year.

  • Rain Gear

    Sligo What to Pack

    If you are going to be camping, then try and pack your bags as light as you can. It was very annoying for me leaving London with heavy luggage. make sure you bring a rain-coat, something warm, and something like a T Shirt. When i was there, the 1st 2 days it rained, the next days were very hot (in july), but got VERY cold in the evenings. You can...

  • Rain Gear

    Kilkenny What to Pack

    Good walking shoes, warm clothes and rain gear are a must. While in Kilkenny, it started to pour down rain and I had to take cover under a tree. Even with an umbrella, the rain will still find a way to get you wet! Be sure to have something to keep your camera dry when the rain comes. Oh, and it will surely come! While waiting for the rain to let...

  • Dress for the weather

    Trondheim What to Pack

    It's a good idea to bring an all weather jacket. The weather seldom stays the same for long, and once you've desided to go out it might turn from sunshine to rain and wind. You should prepare for all kinds of weather in the summer: Bring both the t-shirt and the warm pullover. Depending on what you are going to take pictures of: A polarizer might...

    Plitvicka Jezera National Park What to Pack

    I don’t usually build a tip about Packing but here I have to mention one thing, as it is really necessary. A pair of comfortable walking boots/ trainers. Whatever you think that is comfortable for you to walk 4 or 5 miles wear them.

  • Paking list

    Banja Luka What to Pack

    When I was visiting the town, the weather was typical for the late spring, a slice of sun was followed by the rain. I was lucky to take the rainbow on the outskirts of the town on my way back to home.

  • Toiletries & Medical Supplies

    Inishmore What to Pack

    When I was there the tab water was conterminated and we only were told in the pub at night. The only supermarket on the island closes at 5 or 6 so we had no chance to buy drinking water. Just be warned that there's only one shop in case you need one! There are a few tourist shops in Kilronan where you can get things like this - but it's definitely...

  • Umbrellas

    Alkmaar What to Pack

    Always wear comfy shoes. Make sure they are shoes you have broken in before or you will suffer for sure. The cobbles on the streets make it next to impossible to walk with shoes with a heel. Also make sure your shoes have a good cushion in the sole, otherwise your feet will suffer. Trust me....I know! If your camera takes batteries, buy plenty...
