A couple of thoughts.

I don't want to sound like a know-it-all ('cuz I don't), so I won't ramble.

Two things I'd wish I'd taken more of with me to Europe: anti-histamines (or equivalent), and sunscreen. Ignore the first if you don't have allergies, but if you do, you're going to be outdoors, in the country, a lot, in a place where you probably don't know what you'll react to. I found that in early May half the trees in Provence were dropping fuzzy stuff all over the roads. Very pretty, but it made my eyes itch. As for sunscreen, my experience was that they have it, but putting on European (well, French and German) sunscreen is like applying eau-de-toilette over your entire body. (If you have scent allergies, beware. Take all your cleansers with you.)

Otherwise... Well, I don't know a lot about your plans for your trip, but the other thing that occurs to me is, if you're planning on doing tourist things, make sure you have a sweater or decent jacket to put over a sundress or sleeveless top if you're going to be visiting churches.

Re: A couple of thoughts.

Anti-histimines! Not something I'd thought of, but a great idea. Sunscreen is on my virtual list (which I should turn into a real list, come to think of it), but it's an excellent reminder.

Oooh, good point, churches can be quite chilly!
