Soon I am heading off on a four-month research trip to Italy. I need advice about how to pack up my whole life into two suitcases! My planning-every-detail brain is near imploding.
Two things are on my mind.
- I need a good capsule wardrobe, appropriate for six months of Italian weather.
- What single item would you not be without when in a foreign country alone for ages?
After you’ve packed your testicles-spectacles-wallet-and-watch-type stuff, what’s an unforgettable MUST TAKE OVERSEAS item for you?
