might want to specify the season in which you are traveling.

Is there anything you’re not sure whether ot not you should bring?  Are you concerned with climate and/or dress codes, thus affecting your decision on what type of clothing to bring?  Be specific.

1. No shots are needed for travel to Europe — although being up to date on what’s recommended for young people in North America (tetanus, hepatitis, meningitis, etc.) would be a good idea.
2. You still haven’t told us enough to really answer, like when you’re going — or for that matter where you’re from for comparison purposes. Whether or not you need thermals depends on specifically when you go, specifically where you’re visiting, specifically what you’ll be doing (mountain climbing?), and to some extent on what climate you’re used to.
3. DO NOT BUY the advertised “perfect for travel” clothing – it’s overpriced, screams “tourist” and just plain isn’t worth it. Work with what you already own.

I don’t know if this will help but it is the US travel site.
Also here is the link for the packing list under “tips’ at the top of the forum.
http://www.eurotrip….
I would think for a two month trip you could just bring the same stuff but just end up washing it more or toss out something along the way and buy a souvinier tshirt.
Sweatshirt or Jacket and rainwear. Plastic bags for protection of camera or ‘stuff’ -cell phone etc for when you have to walk in the rain. Oh and in Canada anyway I just saw a product called ‘Dissolve’ in the Laundry isle. It was $3. for a Sample pack of 5sheets that totally dissolve in laundry. Recommend 1/2 sheet for small loads. Anyway you could cut these up for sink laundering and they’re ultra light weight.

And here is the Canadian Gov travel site which would recomend any possible warnings and or vacinations necessary for countries.
We are going for a month and still only bringing enough that we can carry and plan on washing stuff.
Hope this helps you
