I'm stressing about how many clothes to bring on my trip this fall, because I've got people telling me I should only bring 2 or 3 outfits and other people telling me I need to pack a few suitcases worth.
We'll be gone three weeks; changing cities every 3 or 4 days at first. We're starting in the north of Italy and moving south, at a time when it starts to turn colder and might rain in the north. It'll be warmer in the south... I'm hoping for shorts and T-shirt weather. We don't plan to rent a car; we'll be walking or using public transportation where ever possible.
We've pretty much planned almost every day. We'll have some free time every day, but I don't know that we want to spend it at laundry mats. We're also staying at (mostly) B&B's, so I don't know if laundry will be available on sight.
Personally, I usually wash my clothes after each wearing. I'm a bit of a slob, and tend to slop a lot so it's usually necessary. I also don't like wearing pj's more than a couple of nights before swapping them for a clean set.
Then again, I'll only have a rolling duffle bag that's about the size of a medium-sized suitcase and a small shoulder bag. Anything that I bring, I have to be prepared to schlep down cobble stone streets, onto the trains and through the airports.
If we plan to spend one night at about the half way point at a laundry mat, how many outfits should I bring? How many would you bring?
