    They say a book can be your best friend when you are travelling (Especially alone). Well maybe yes! If you are travelling elsewhere, Not Europe buddy! If you prefer to stick to your book than enjoying the scintillating scenic wonder outside the window, then you’d rather sit on the pot in your cozy lil home and do it! :/

    3. Snacks

    You do realize you are not going to end up in a hotel in Europe of all the places with no toilet papers??

    6. Unnecessary jewellery and clothes

    Why carry a bazillion clothes and accessories while travelling, unless you are participating in the Milan Fashion week :/

    When you are at a hotel in Europe you don’t need your “I carried it from home” toiletries. All off the hotels are equipped with them. Infact you can carry a little souvenir back home from the hotels If you know what I mean ;)

    8. Anything with “what if”

    What If

    You are travelling to Europe for God’s sake! not the Amazonian forests. If at all you have forgotten something, there are millions of stores you can pick it up from. What if you don’t find it there? :O There’s always Amazon with its promise of jet speed deliveries :P

    9. Maps

    Geo Maps

    Although people with OCD to organized trips prefer to stick their noses to the map, we suggest you don’t obsess over one. For there is no other place to get lost and explore around than when you are in Europe.

    10. Chocolates

    Chocolate should be the first item on your “Things to buy in Europe list” not “things to pack to Europe” one. Chocolates from anywhere else will be put to shame once they confront their counterparts in Europe.

    11. Liquor

    First of all you don’t want to be caught carrying liquor. And most importantly the top 10 liquor consuming countries in the world are in Europe and you want to carry liquor to Europe?? Tsk Tsk! what a shame. Belgium, Germany, France, Italy are all in Europe you know!!

    12. A nagging girl friend/ boy friend

    This thing should not be anywhere on your packing list, not even in the end! This creature can be extremely caustic with all the complaints and gossip and what not. Instead of getting lost in the beauty of nature and the skills of Homo sapiens laid out to mesmerize your senses, you will end up with bleeding ears. And if you think he/she might be necessary for only when you are erotically charged, Well Amsterdam is anyway a part of your itinerary ;)
