Try to imagine clothes at given moments. Are they good for both day and evening when paired with another garment? It is always better to prefer garments that "are enough" on their own, without adding additional items.

    3. Simple clothes

This is a fundamental point, especially in relation to the journey you are about to make.

    5. The shoes

    The main object are the pair of shoes, which must be comfortable and resistant and possibly not new because they would be too stiff and could create blisters or bubbles in your feet. Essential for those traveling to cities of art or to the mountains. Prefer old shoes and those you just bought even if they are more beautiful. With your old shoes you will not have problems with bubbles that could give you the newest ones.


    6. The accessories
