In one week I leave for a two-week trip to Norway and Sweden. I'll be hopping around from place to place via train, ferry and plane with plenty of time allocated to both nature and city explorations. It's a dream vacation that has all the right components (fjords, hiking, seafood, culture, design) and I am beyond excited to fully immerse myself in Scandinavian everything.
Until then, I have the next week to ponder over what to pack. I need to be prepared for temperatures ranging from the low 40s to mid 70s and weather conditions that could change at a moment's notice. My goal is to be strategic so that I am not weighed down by too much and have room to bring some goodies back. Layering pieces will be key and this free printable packing guide from DesignLoveFest could not have come at a better time. I plan to fill one out for each city with the hope that there will be a lot of overlap of items. In the meantime, here's a look at what would be in my dream suitcase.
