A GIRL'S guide to GLAMOUR while traveling

Okay, first of all, there’s nothing intrinsically glamourous about budget traveling, but maybe I can share some tips to make your roughing-it a little less rough.

First of all, there is the showering issue. I took along with me a hanging shower kit (eagle creek) with mesh bags that held anything I would need for a trip to the showers. The bag unzipped and could be hung from the shower head, with everything you need right there.

As far as toiletries, I am pretty high-maintainance, but I found a great system. Before my trip, I became a serious collector of samples. Every few days I would go to the mall, explain my situation, and ask for a few sample packets. I collected tons of stuff in those little packets – Chanel facial lotions, DKNY body lotion, Clinque soaps, and tons of wonderful hair products from the salons, all for free. Then I counted out one lotion, cleanser, shampoo, and conditioner for each day I would be in Europe (60) and seperated them into ziplock bags. This packed down a lot smaller than bottles of stuff, and each day throwing away those packets just made the pack lighter. I felt really pampered, becasue I usually don’t use such expensive stuff at home. So even if the shower was dirty and had bugs and was cold, I could find some sense of joy in using very self-indulgent products

Clothing — I took the typical shorts and tank tops, but I took a pair of Roxy boardshorts that came in very handy for beaches, etc. I didn’t pack any jeans, because they are so heavy to pack. Instead, I took some Gap palatzzo pants that rolled up nicely and were VERY comfortable. I also took several wrinkle-free dresses that would fold down to the size of a sock. I took one slinky black one to wear to clubs and in Monte Carlo, and I took a long black skirt to pair with my tank tops. I also took a beachy dress that I wore with sandals during the day. Very cool and comfortable.

I just got an alternative to the packtowel at Linens n Things called an Aquis towel. Its feels more like a real towel although a lot thinner. It says its meant for quickly drying hair (its 18×36) though it would probably make a good travel towel. I think I’ve seen a larger beach/bath towel size in a travel catalog.

Wow, I’ve learnt more about girlsy stuff in these ten minutes of reading this board than I have my entire life!!!

Here’s a couple of other things, things from a guy’s perspective – make sure you take some bikinis with ya, i don’t think I saw anyone mention bikinis anywhere. and don’t forget guy condoms either, can’t expect guys to carry condoms with them ALL the time. Become a "Trojan Girl"…LOL

Shorts aren’t welcome? Does this go for all of Europe? What about tank-tops?

This may sound silly, but has anyone brought a curling iron with them while travelling? My hair is at a really wierd state right now, and it looks awful if I don’t curl it. Also, I figure it would be convenient for going out.

Hey everyone! This post is great..and all the treads have given me some great ideas already…but I need some additional advice (of course). I’m going to be in France for a month for a study abroad program…and then I’m going to England and Scotland for two weeks. I’ll be in France through June, and England/Scotland the first week or so of July. I think that the temperatures will be a bit different between France and the UK, so packing might be a little more challenging for me.

What clothes should I take for the UK leg of my trip? And how in the world can I pack this down to a daypack and a bag the size of the Rick Steves one?

Also, I live in cotton, and generally hate polyester in any form. It tends to really make me hot and not happy, but it may be a necessary evil to pack lightly and wrinkle-free. Where can I find cotton/polyester skirst, shirts, etc that are fashionable, yet are not so very expensive? Also, what’s the verdict on shorts? I live in mine (denim , khaki, etc.) and I live in jeans and khaki pants. I rarely were black pants, but I do have several black dresses.

Any hints regarding clothing and packing compactly would most appreciated!

HiThere,
I too can not survive without a curling iron.I’m planning to take a cordless curling iron with me. They run on butane. Heat up and cool down FAST. Also, since they are cordless you can use them anywhere. That’s my solution.

Mars— since you seem to be the clubber and rather knowledgeable about the whole club scene, then you are probably going to want shoes for the occasion — not sneakers. But, bulkiness is a problem as you stated, so I think you have the best idea — buy a cool pair in London or whatever city you are visiting that has the coolest style you like. You save space for a little while and you come back with a great souvenir that you can wear in clubs back home!

Thanks for all of the great info.

I bought a quick drying towel from Brookstone, the larger size makes an excellent bath towel and runs about 35 dollars. They also have a great inflatable travel pillow (inflates in about 3 large blows) that is great for plane and train travel and a suitable alternative to an unexceptable hostel pillow (about 10 dollars).
Target, Lerners, and Express all carry plenty of polyester blends and twin sets at great prices and the cardigan from a twin set works well as a cover up on a chilly night heading back from the club.
As for the question about party shoes, i found a sexy, strappy black sandle with a cushy sole by Athena Alexander at the Nordstrom Rack for 30 bucks. There not bulky at all and don’ take up much space in my pack at all. For a walking shoe I found
9 West Clouds to be the most comfortable and attractive since I wont be taking tennies. I picked a black leather loafer with a thick rubber sole.

hi,
not to be repetitive but this is a great thread…anyway, i went backpacking last summer for about three months with my best friend. just a thought…..

one of the things i’d recommend is a solid color dress. my friend bought a short cotton, short-sleeve, black dress from GAP. she wore it in hostels/ hotels after getting out of the shower so she didn’t have to stay in a towel, at the beach, to the laundry mat when everything else was being washed and for going out in. to dress it up a little, she brought along some scarves to tie around her neck or in her hair. it actually looked cute and the scarves took up very little room. the dress was versitile enough to look good with nice shoes and flip-flops.

happy travels

Kristen this is a FABULOUS thread! Thanks for starting it!

I am printing EVERY word of it to give to my sister and a friend of mine as we are packing around Iceland and Paris next month. My sister is hell-bent on being earth girl and my friend is a total Jackie O! I’ve got to find a middle ground that will satisfy both of their styles without adding time and/or stress to our group trip.

Submit your story to Student Travel magazine—it’s a great how-to for ALL female student travelers!

Well done!

Tipper.

Re: the SHORTS being welcome or not in Europe. I couldn’t believe it either, but in my time in the UK I was told in summer they just wear "the same clothes, but less of them". Shorts are a dead giveaway that you’re an American, apparently.

To stay cool and still draw less attention try a long meshy skirt, or even a little summer dress.

Shorts issue:

I took a few days to try to find out why we feel that way about them, but couldn’t find a proper explanation. My personal reason against them is that they make my butt look twice its actual size, but that’s just me. In general, they just feel SO out.

Crazysue-
I bring a curling iron with me on my trips. Mine died on me towards the end of my last trip, I think it overheated even with my voltage converter. I’ll bring one on my next trip too, but I’ll get a cheap one at Target in case it gets overheated again. Be careful to let it cool a bit before you use it, otherwise you’ll burn your hair. I’ve tried the butane curling irons and they just don’t work as well as the electric ones. You may want to make sure you can bring it on the plane, especially if it’s in your carry-on.

Crazysue-
I bring a curling iron with me on my trips. Mine died on me towards the end of my last trip, I think it overheated even with my voltage converter. I’ll bring one on my next trip too, but I’ll get a cheap one at Target in case it gets overheated again. Be careful to let it cool a bit before you use it, otherwise you’ll burn your hair. I’ve tried the butane curling irons and they just don’t work as well as the electric ones. You may want to make sure you can bring it on the plane, especially if it’s in your carry-on.

Hello….there is alot of great info here but my question is basicly skin exposure in France and Italy. I will be in both countries in June and am planning on wearing alot of tank’s and skirts. However, I don’t want to stand out- basicly showing TOO much. I am of course bring some short and long sleeves and pants- but just wondering what the protocal is. I just figure that wearing a tank will solve the issue of wearing a bra and keep me somewhat cool. So any thoughts will really be appreciated. One more thing- I’ve heard that tight revealing clothes will attract the "wrong kind of attention"…of course having your chest and ass hanging out will cause some type of reaction, but how about a "tight" tank and long skirt?
Thanks all!!

Thanks Anna – I’m actually considering buying a cheap curling iron and dryer when I arrive in Ireland. Since I’m staying in one country I won’t have to worry about adaptors or convertors. Then I can always use them when I visit again. Thanks for the tips.

Crazysue,
I bought a blowdryer in Switzerland last fall, now I have it to bring with me on subsequent trips and no convertor to worry about. I kind of happened upon it at a grocery/discount store on sale for less than $15. You won’t have to worry about a convertor then either.

This thread really is great!
My question relates to airport security. Once I was forced to remove a pack of razors in my case, and I am wondering if there are any other tips snyone would have for cameras and such -I’ve heard that security will often open a camera and expose film, or the Xray can damage it even when it’s unrolled!
Any advice?

regarding film,

i worked in a camera store for almost two years and quite comfortably say dont worry about it. x-rays will only affect high speed film, 1000 asa or greater, most of the time. there are of course exceptions. first off, you should pack your film in your carry on bag because the x-ray machine is less powerful in the terminal than the one which examines checked baggage. also, if youre going to be taking the same rolls of undeveloped film through multiple airports, more than 4 or 5, you might want to invest in a lead lined bag available most camera stores. but most people will be using slow, conventional film and not be going through multiple airports and have nothing to fear. as far as "unrolled" film goes, i assume you mean film thats been developed, at which point no amount of x-rays, gamma rays, etc, will affect your film.

I am going for a 15-day trip and am planning to carry a pair of Teva storm sandals and comfy black shoes (for skirts etc.). I am in 2 minds about getting a pair of hiking shoes. Do you think that’s an overkill ? I will be doing a lot of walking not real hard hikes n stuff.

As far as apparel goes, I am thinking of taking :

1 pair of black trousers
1 pair of denims (blue)
1 pair of black leggings
1 skirt ( black print)
2 Long sleeve shirts (denim, khaki)
2 short sleeve tops (white, black)
3 long sleeve tops (grey, black, white)
1 turtle neck (for layering)
2 t-shirts (tobe replaced with souvenir ones)
2 pairs of shoes (black, sandals)
1 pair of waterproof shorts & a smim top
1 fleece pullover
1 sweater (black cardigan)
7 pairs of underwear
5 pairs of socks
Woollen Hat, scarf, gloves


What can/should I safely eliminate/add if reqd?

Thanks for your help!
Lucy

I am planning on brining along some of those small "shout" travel packets. This way, i won’t be stuck with a stained shirt for the entire trip. *They pack nicely too!

I am a fairly simple person LucyDas, but I do think you are bringing too much. You only need two light long sleeve shirts two t- shirts or tank tops (short sleeve shirts?) and two heavier tops. Remember you can always wash stuff on your way. If you plan to wear sandals most of the time you won’t need many pairs of socks. Rain jacket is crucial, you don’t need a turtleneck when you can simply layer with your long sleeve shirts (unless your neck is prone to getting cold). Also I would reccomend you not bring your jeans unless you must have them because they are very heavy to carry and difficult to wash. Bring a lighter pair of pants and some long underwear instead. I hope I gave you some help at least!

I am just curious as to the shorts thing. The last time I was in Sweden and Denmark everyone was wearing shorts just like in the US. Has something changed? Any pictures I see of young people in Europe (hostel web sites and stuff) you always see people in shorts. Just curious why everyone is saying shorts are so wrong. (I am just talking about khaki shorts)
Thanks!

I second the suggestion for long johns. You can wear them as pajamas and then use them on cold days. I love mine, and I am sure they will be just as great on the road as they are at home.

my question is about shoes, mostly in Italy. For nicer shoes, say to wear with a sarong or a sundress, what size of heel is popular over there right now? anyone been recently? all i see in american mags are those flat slip-ons and ballet shoes.

Resurrecting semi-ancient thread…

RE: Shorts – or lack thereof in Europe.

What about the rage of Capri pants? You know, the pants that fall to right below the knee? They were all over New York last year but this year they’re not so prevalent – though they’re ALL OVER the rest of the US. Even Target sells them.

So what about capri pants? They’re light and are similar to shorts but perhaps one won’t stand out in them. They can also easily be dressed up?

Hi all,

Fantastic thread…its about time it made a come back! My question relates to cargo pants/shorts, are they popular in europe still? They are huge in Australia at the moment and are perfect for backpacking, but I don’t want to look like I’m dressed from head to toe in last seasons gear. Any info or tips would be great.

Thanks, Bec

Shortened trousers are apparently all the rage in the Uk at the moment – I can’t stand them but you do see a few people wearing them!

Also, people do wear shorts here – but only if it’s hot! ) I think the probable short difference is that they tend to be pretty short. The Amercian’s I’ve seen tend to wear them much longer.

This is a reply to all the women who were talking about waxing earlier. As a woman who has waxed for a couple of years now I HIGHLY recommend it for the following reasons:
1)You don’t have to worry about shaving during your trip
2)Your hair grows back sparser
3)You don’t have to worry about packing razors
4)Can we just say overall convenience!!!

If you do decide to wax there are some tips you should follow, however.
1)Never wax right before or during your period. It’ll hurt like hell and maybe even bleed—and no one wants that
2)Wax a couple of times before leaving (this obviously requires some planning) This is b/c each hair grows at a different pace and so you’ll end up with growth more quickly after your 1st wax then after your 2nd, 3rd, etc.

Hope this helps!!

You can also buy wax strips at drug stores to do touch-ups while on the road.

Hi everyone! I have a question..this shoe issue doesn’t seem to be resolved. What is the difference between "trainers" and "running shoes"? So white Nike type shoes are a definite no no? Do you suggest black walking shoes and sandals?
Thanks!!

I just bought a hair curler/styler that won’t need electrical outlet.- it works with batteries. I’m sure you’ve all seen the commercial where a girl styles her hair in her convertible while waiting for her lover to come down blah blah blah—

I’ll be traveling all around Europe so I figured this would be easier. The stlyler cost about 30 and does include one battery thats suppose to last 4-6 weeks depending, and batteries alone cost about 5dollars-

Hope this helps.
happy travel—

Hi, Kristen here again. I just got back from a quick trip to the Greek isles and had some feedback I thought I would add. I did a few thing differently on this trip. For one, instead of my backpack, I took a suitcase with rollers. I know this may not be the popular option, but I really liked using it better than my backpack. For one, it wasn’t as heavy. The wheels are roller-blade wheels so they moved fast and turned well. I felt more mobile, and I could pick it up when I needed to in order to squeeze through small turnstiles, etc. It was also easier to load and unload, unlike my top-loading backpack. So, "backpack-type" travel can be done with a regular suitcase.

For this trip I packed two pairs of shoes – leather tevas with a good sole for walking and black platform sandals (the lightweight spongy type so they were light). Both shoes served me well. I took two pairs of shoes, two pairs of capri pants, short overalls, two skirts, two baby tees and four tank-tops. All of this packed down incredibly small. I also took a light cardigan for colder nights.

What was different about this trip was that we spent most of our days on the beach and most nights in the club. Minimal sight-seeing. So looking back I wish I would have brought more beachwear and clubbing clothes. (But not all trips are like that).

My hair is very long, so I took a small hairdryer again and was glad I did. I also found bandanas and a Roxy fishing hat served me well for bad hair days.

Many of the beaches we visited were totally nude, but I still kept my top on. Just not quite comfortable with the potential for boob burn.

One last tip — if you plan to travel by ferry, don’t forget the dramamine.

An alternative to tampons is a rubber cup called the Keeper. You empty and rinse as needed. It takes some getting used to in the beginning but after a while, it becomes second nature. Nothing else beats it for travel or for everyday use. Convenient AND eco-friendly!

Defcoco, that is disgusting, please tell me that it’s a joke.
This is a great little girly thread going here, and really useful. I’ve just returned from living in Israel for 6 months, and travelling round Egypt with 2 of the most ‘high maintenance’ girls you’ll ever meet. One needed a suitcase for her make up and hair products. The three of us are travelling Europe for 2 months leaving in 6 days. I’m planning on packing very light, but I’ve got very long, curly hair, and tend to need loads of products for it. I don’t need a hairdryer, but I do need frizz ease! Any suggestions for how I can take the bare minimum. And what is a quick dry towel?

Adriane j,

Many Swedes and Danes essentially dress like US prepies, at home on vacation. Cargo shorts + polo shirt + tevas (or something close). I see this at home and for 2 weeks recently on some of the Greek isles.

I think this dress European thing is way overdone for both sexes.

Defcoco, I’ve been looking for more info on the keeper. Have you traveled with it? How difficult is it to find privacy to rinse it out while travelling? (I know some people would be totally grossed out by seeing someone do this, and I want to respect that.) How long can you leave it in? Any other info would greatly appreciated before I buy one.

For any one who is contemplating bringing a curling iron on their trip:
I just found these velcro thermal rollers at Sally Beauty Supply-in the US. They are $4.99 for a pack of six and are amazing. I dry my hair until it’s damp and then use the rollers. All you do is dry your hair the rest of the way and then take the curlers out. They have a metal strip inside so they heat up when you are drying your hair the rest of the way. They make your hair really curly and the curl lasts the whole day. Plus, it only takes me 5-10 minutes for the whole ordeal, and with packing they would take up no room. What a find! I’d highly reccomend them.

lauraly, you rinse it out when you have the privacy to do so but you can bring a wet paper towel with you into a stall, empty and wipe clean. And you keep it in depending on your flow. Let me just warn you not to get discouraged when you first start using it as it requires some patience when learning how to use it. once you get the hang of it tho, it’s a piece of cake. check out www.keeper.com for more info.
p.s. Menstruation is not a dirty and disgusting thing! Jodie1980, imagine a pile of used pads and tampons an average woman goes through in ten years (which is at least how long the keeper lasts). Now that’s disgusting!!!

Jodie:

My load lightening tips would include:

At least one sarong (can be used as a skirt, dress, wrap, and abut a billion other things)

If you need an alarm clock, just buy a sportswatch with a built in alarm (Timex Ironman is my favorit cheap but durable one)

Brookstone travel towel (small, light and dries about 5 minutes after you’ve used it)

Small Swiss Army knife (pocketknife size, but be sure to get one including scissors as they can be used for trimming nails)

If you are not traveling on an E ticket, see if you can get you paper ticket converted into E ticket form. That way, you don’t need to worry about ticket being lost/stolen and it saves you a bit of space in the moneybelt.

To those of you who have previously read these recommendations, please forgive my redundancy.

Danika,
I too, used to get very intense cramps (I used to sit in the tub with the door unlocked because the pain would be soo overwhelming I’d kind of pass out and my mom was afraid I’d drown. My first doctor reluctantly gave me Ponstan and told me that I needed to just deal with the pain because all girls get cramps. As a result, I am now with a new doctor. She has put me on the pill- it took about a year and a half and about four different kinds, but I have now found the right pill for me (one that doesn’t cause me to be nauseous all the time and cause me to lose a lot of weight).
I am taking Alesse now. Talk to your doctor about putting you on the pill. I haven’t had cramps for about 8 monthes now. If that doesn’t work, talk to your doctor about endomitriosis. It is a problem that some women have that can cause extreme cramps as well as other symptoms. I would suggest talking to your doctor about the symptoms if your cramps are that serious though.
At one point I was taking ponstan every few hours as well as extra strenght 222’s with codiene every 3 hours and my doctor siad if that’s the case, something new must be tried because you shouldn’t have to take so many pills. If your doctor keeps putting you on many different pills or if she/he isn’t taking you seriously, then make sure you SWITCH DOCTORS.
Good luck

thank-you
just one more thing everyone(when i was younger)just thought that i was faking my pain,just because they didn’t experience the samre pain that i did!!!
