Packing for a weekend, a week or six months: It is always very difficult to decide what you want to pack in your suitcase – especially for women. 🙂 When I moved abroad for a long time, I wanted to put my entire wardrobe into the suitcases…then my friend (who is a proficient traveller) came to my house and took the 50% of it out. During the months I spent in Germany, I realised – my friend is right, I really did not need all my clothes or my paintings from my room…
So, here is a short list for you, that (I hope) can facilitate your packing process 🙂

( If I forgot something important, leave a comment below 🙂 )
