The 6 essentials to pack for EVERY Europe trip

Whether you go for a few days, weeks, or months, here are the six essentials you should pack for EVERY Europe trip!

1. An outlet converter. Make sure that all of your electronic gadgets can handle the higher number of Watts from European outlets.

2. Cash. Credit cards are not as common in some parts Europe yet. In a lot of countries (Germany, Eastern Europe, Spain,…), you pay cash, especially for food and especially in smaller towns. Either order it at the bank in your home country before or take it out of an ATM in your prospective country.

In Scandinavia, however, you can pay almost anything via credit card.

3. Inform yourself about the cheapest option for cell phone usage: Ask your carrier at home how much it would cost for you to use it abroad, but also search for carriers in your prospective country to see if there’s a cheaper option (such as a prepaid card). If you travel for months at a time, your US carrier can put your contract on hold in exchange for a small fee (+/- $10 per month).

4. Clothes according to the weather in your prospective country.

5. A small dictionary.

6. Comfortable shoes! Despite taking lots of public transportation because it’s easier and faster most of the time, you will walk a lot.
