What to Pack (and not to pack)

Southern France + England Tours

Luggage - We will be traveling in a 9-person large passenger van, (see photo below). The area for suitcases is not large. Bring your belongings in a carry on size suitcase. If you must bring additional luggage use a soft duffle bag approximately the same size as a carry-on bag. In addition, if you can pack exclusively in soft luggage it will be MUCH appreciated.

Walking/Hiking – Some of the sites we will be touring would be considered a hike. The trails are well groomed and steep inclines are made via stairs. I write of this to make it clear that you will need to be able to walk/hike comfortably for 45 minute stretches. On the England and South of France Tours we will be on some quasi-rugged terrain. Please bring comfortable shoes or boots that will give you traction.

Clothing – Pack layers! We will be starting out early and walking quite a bit during the day. Please pack a light weight rain repellent windbreaker with hood. We will be in the sun, so please pack sunscreen and a hat.

Bug Repellent - Some of our sites will be near water. Please bring the bug repellent of your choice. Note: I like bug "wipes", they don't take up much room and can be thrown easily in one's day pack. 

Nap Sack or Back Pack - We will be on the land and hiking, carrying something over your shoulders frees up your hands and balances the weight.  

Swimsuit - The house in England has a large hot tub and several of the inns in France have pools. 

Sleeping Accessories - a polite way to say, some of us are more sensitive to light and sound than others... you might want to bring a sleep mask and ear plugs.   

 

Paris/Chartres Cathedral Tour

Walking - Bring shoes that are comfortable and suitable for city walking. We will be in the sun, so please bring sunscreen and a hat. 

Clothing – Pack layers! We will be starting out early and walking quite a bit during the day. Please pack a light weight windbreaker with hood. We will be in the sun, so please pack a hat.
