For my 1st time to Europe in 3 wks, I am wearing a cross body bag..hands free is a good thing..twice last week on tv, I saw good looking fanny packs are making a comeback...again hands free....if you would wear one, go for it..
For myself, I would never carry a back pack...a light micro fiber shoulder bag could work...you have to start off, with a bag that is lightweight, before you even put anything in it..
As far as clothes...what are you looking for..casual, dressy..larger sizes?
Let us know and we can advise you better..
Trip, with her book & tea!
