I’ve never been more proud of my packing capabilities than the night before I left for #LTeuropa, having rolled up two week’s worth of carefully selected outfits, accessories, and toiletries into a small carry-on suitcase. Could it be that The Lazy Travelers are actually perfecting the art of packing lightly?
Flash forward forty eight hours and the romantic and I were sprawled on the floor of our one hundred degree, un-air conditioned apartment, dreading the thought of putting on any of the outfits I had carefully chosen for our trip. I attempted to put on a ankle-length black maxi and within minutes the fabric was sticking to my legs.
