Packing Picks for Mini-City Breaks in Europe

If you’ve been following our  travels on Instagram, Facebook and over here over the past few months, you’ll see we’ve planned to explore a few European cities this summer–we are done with Vienna in Austria and we’ve planned to do 3 more countries (Belgium, Poland and Luxembourg) within this month! And why not! London is the ultimate city from which to explore Europe, in all its glory. We are pretty much always within a short flight from every European city! Figuring out how to pack for this mini city breaks  is a fun challenge (every single look was thought out in advance, because we could only take one cabin luggage as we usually travel in budget airlines within Europe- it’s convenient and economic).
