  • Hi! Today I'm going to talk about what I packed for my trip to Amsterdam and Bruges.

  • If you're not familiar, Amsterdam is in The Netherlands and Bruges is in Belgium.

  • We are going for ten days but two of those are travel days so

  • really we're going to spend eight days in the city

  • we're going to first go to Amsterdam

  • and then from Amsterdam we're going to take the train to Bruges and

  • then we're gonna head back to Amsterdam for another day or two.

  • I actually think is one more day and then we're gonna head back to the airport and come back to the US

  • So packing for this trip was a little bit tricky at first I thought

  • well you know what I'm gonna try to do everything on a carry-on for the 10 days

  • but then once I started packing, I realized that my carry-on is just not gonna be big enough

  • especially since it's going to be cold

  • and cold weather clothing, as you know, it's heavier, thicker so it takes up more room in your suitcase

  • so I had to basically eliminate my carry-on but I didn't want to take my huge suitcase

  • because since we will be traveling from Amsterdam to Bruges

  • I didn't want to take a really heavy suitcase with me

  • while we're walking and traveling.

  • It just gets in the way

  • I don't like big bulky things especially when I know I don't really need a huge suitcase for ten days

  • So my solution was to finally purchase the medium-sized Away suitcase.

  • So I have the carry-on Away and like I said, I try to fit everything in there

  • it just wasn't working out so when I bought the medium Away suitcase it was perfect.

  • It's not too big and not too small so it's perfect for this ten-day trip to Amsterdam and Bruges

  • So I'm going to show you what I packed for this trip

  • like I said it's it's cold so... I mean, it's not gonna be like then winter

  • but it is starting to get cold already so I'm definitely going to be dressing in layers

  • Definitely a lot of walking involved and a lot of biking so I wanted to bring clothes that were comfortable

  • but also warm enough for the cold weather or kind of slightly chilly weather.

  • Probably to people in Amsterdam, it's not that chilly but since Crystal and I are both from warmer climates

  • I currently live in Southern California and Crystal lives in Florida

  • So to us, anything below 60 degrees is pretty chilly.

  • I know that 60 degrees is probably nothing to people who live up north

  • but anything below 60 starts getting a little bit cold for us.

  • We've been keeping track of the weather and it looks like it's gonna be like in the 50s during the day

  • and then at night it drops pretty low and there are some activities we'll be doing at night

  • not a whole lot so we need to dress appropriately for the cold weather

  • because the last thing we want to do is catch a cold and it'll ruin our trip.

  • So, let me show you what I packed and I'm also going to show you - oh yeah, let me mention one more thing.

  • So because I am checking in my medium - you can't carry on the medium carry-on, it's too big.

  • So I'm checking that in and because I'm checking that in, there is a possibility that it might get lost or delayed

  • That has happened before and you don't want that to ruin your trip

  • so what I do is then I carry on a duffel bag and I carry a couple extra days of clothes in there.

  • I carry my toiletries in there and my makeup in there.

  • So basically if my bag does happen to get lost or delayed

  • I still have a couple days of clothes on me and I really don't have to go out and buy -

  • I don't want to spend time having to go buy things because I already have a whole -

  • Crystal and I already have our itinerary planned. We have tickets to go see a museum that we can't cancel

  • so the last thing I want to do is spend time shopping and trying

  • to find clothing and toothbrush and toothpaste and all that stuff.

  • We don't want to do that on my trip.

  • Alright, so let me go ahead and get to what I have in my suitcase.

  • In my medium-sized Away suitcase that I'm going to be checking in -

  • On one side I packed a couple of sweaters, an extra jacket, a couple of pants -

  • jeggings type of ... yeah, I think I called jeggings.

  • I mean they're pants - they're denim but they've got a lot of stretch to them.

  • I don't like wearing uncomfortable pants when I'm traveling

  • I try to dress really comfortable

  • so these pants are super comfortable and stretchy.

  • I also packed a skirt and then I packed uh... what else did I pack?

  • Oh, I packed these Uniqlo HeatTech innerwear

  • which is great for layering so I'll be wearing the HeatTech leggings under the skirt

  • and the HeatTech top under my sweaters.

  • On the other side, I packed my extra shoes, extra boots,

  • I also have a light jacket - a leather jacket that I'm packing

  • and then I packed one dress. I thought I should pack one dress

  • because one night we are gonna go out and eat somewhere nice

  • so that's why I packed a nice dress for that evening.

  • And then just little miscellaneous items like

  • a headband I don't want to say that but it's like those head warmers - because it's gonna be cold.

  • Socks, underwear, bra... so yeah, just like little miscellaneous items I put all on the other side.

  • so that's what I'll be taking with me for my check-in bag is a medium Away suitcase.

  • And what I'm carrying on with me is my backpack and my duffel bag.

  • and in my duffel bag, I am basically carrying this on just so that I have an pair -

  • some extra pairs of clothes with me. Also my toiletry and my makeup.

  • Just in case my check-in bag gets lost or delayed.

  • So in my duffel bag, I am packing a couple of my sweaters, pants and my toiletry

  • and then also my makeup bag, my jewelry bag and then also my GoPro.

  • So these are all the items I am packing in my duffel bag.

  • Everything can fit in my duffle bag. I don't need that extra book bag necessarily .

  • But I do like to carry a book bag just because

  • when I'm in Amsterdam or Bruges I'm gonna need that backpack.

  • So in my backpack I am going to carry snacks, my laptop, my personal items

  • like my passport, my wallet, and my phone.

  • So those are the two bags that I will be carrying on with me on my flight

  • and they're not, you know - like I said

  • the duffle bag really isn't necessary. I could have fit all those things in my check-in suitcase

  • but I I'm just scared or I like to be prepared that in the case that my bag does get lost or delayed

  • that I have clothes with me for at least two days

  • and that way I'm not spending time and Amsterdam or Bruges looking for clothing

  • because the last thing I want to do is waste my time shopping instead of sightseeing

  • and yeah, so that's why I am carrying on the duffel bag with extra clothes.

  • So that's what I'm packing for Amsterdam and Bruges. Hopefully everything arrives fine.

  • That there's no lost or delayed luggage.

  • I mean if it happens it happens. There's really not much I can do about it and

  • that's why I have that duffel bag just in case that does happen

  • and I'm not stressing out or heartbroken that my things are gone.

  • I still have an extra bag of clothes and toiletries and accessories.

  • And I really hope that it's not freezing there,

  • I hope I packed accordingly and I think the clothes that I packed are warm.

  • I have the innerwear, the HeatTech innerwear,

  • I have nice warm cashmere wool sweaters that you know really provide a lot of warmth

  • compared to acrylic or cotton material

  • and yeah, I'm excited. I am excited to see my sister.

  • We are actually not flying together. We're meeting up in Amsterdam.

  • Crystal's coming from Florida. I'm flying in from California

  • and I'm going to see her tomorrow.

  • And I will give you an update when I get back

  • to let you know how the things that I...

  • let you know what I packed, if it did work.

  • The things that I packed that I didn't need and then I'll kind of give you an update

  • on how the weather was for for me.

  • If what I packed was warm enough or I didn't pack heavier coats

  • or if I packed things that were like too warm.

  • Anyways, I'll give an update when I come back.

  • ♪♪ MUSIC ♪♪

  • Alright, so I am back from my trip. I had an awesome time. Absolutely loved Amsterdam and Bruges

  • and if I had to go back to... or if I ever want to go back to either of those cities again

  • I definitely want to go back to Bruges.

  • If you've never been, you definitely have to go because it is a beautiful, beautiful city.

  • So anyways, I think I did pretty good. Everything that I packed worked out great.

  • The weather was actually really nice while we were there.

  • We got lucky and it was pretty much sunny the entire time

  • so during the day it was cool but it was a nice cool.

  • In the mornings and nights, it was a bit chilly so you definitely need to layer and wear your heavy coats.

  • especially for the mornings and late nights.

  • Actually even during the day I wore the coat because it was cold. It was just cold for me.

  • I'm just - I get cold easily but it wasn't like an unbearable cold. It was like a good cold.

  • So yeah, so I think what I packed was just perfect for this trip.

  • I will say there's only two things that I wish I would have packed

  • and I wish I would have packed a collapsible umbrella

  • kind of like those mini travel umbrellas.

  • That would have come in handy a couple of times

  • because there were a couple of times where it was raining and and we were getting wet

  • and I was like Ugh, I wish I had an umbrella because

  • my hair got damp and my clothes got a little bit wet

  • and you just kind of start to feel more cold when you're wet

  • so yeah I wish I had an umbrella a couple of times

  • and to kind of go with that, I also wish I had a rain jacket

  • because it would have kept me a little bit more dry and my book bag was getting wet too so

  • luckily it didn't rain all day or when we did get caught in the rain it wasn't like pouring down rain.

  • It wasn't drizzling - it was a little bit heavier than drizzling but it was definitely raining

  • enough to where we wanted to try to avoid it by walking under buildings

  • that had a roof or something that was kind of hanging over

  • so we could walk underneath those so we don't get too wet.

  • So yeah, those are the two things that I wish I would have brought were a collapsible umbrella

  • and a raincoat but other than that I think when I packed was perfect for this time of year.

  • Oh! I did want to mention - sorry, one more thing.

  • I'm so glad I brought - or I bought the medium Away suitcase for this trip

  • because when we were traveling from Amsterdam to Bruges and back, we took the trains.

  • If I had brought a bigger suitcase than that it would have been difficult to travel with.

  • One, because the doors to get into the train was pretty narrow

  • and then there's an area where you can store the luggage

  • and I don't think that big one would have really fit that well in there compartments.

  • You can put luggage up above your seats. I mean, your small suitcase will definitely fit up your seat.

  • The medium one - I believe it does fit however

  • it's so heavy that I don't have enough strength that provides strength to lift it up

  • so I couldn't even put it above my seat even if I wanted to.

  • So definitely - if you're going to be traveling, really think smart about your luggage and the size

  • because the trains do have limited space for luggage and if you're going to bring something big

  • I think you're gonna have difficulty traveling with it

  • And also one of the train stations where we had to change,

  • there was no elevator or escalator to get up to the platform

  • so it's gonna be really difficult carrying a large suitcase of the platform.

  • I was struggling with my medium suitcase

  • and I saw these two older ladies I wanted to meet they're like in their 60s

  • and they were even - I mean if I was struggling and of course they were struggling

  • carrying their suitcase up the staircase.

  • And I would have helped them but I was to struggling myself

  • I mean, we all made it up but just to let you know

  • that there was one place where there was no escalator or elevator.

  • We really had to carry our luggage up the stairs ourselves
