Packing List: Scandinavia in November

 Scandinavia in November | busyXploring Packing List

In the winter of 2018, I decided to travel to 3 countries in one week. Norway, Denmark, and Sweden were my choices and how cool it was! Below is a packing list of exactly what I brought with me in one small backpack for the week. When traveling, I believe in re-wearing clothes and bringing as little as possible. This makes airplane/train/taxi travel much easier!

Location: Norway, Denmark, Sweden
Month: Late November
Weather: Cloudy/Chilly, 30's
Trip Style: Backpacking

Advice: Pack light and pack layers. Warm socks/boots are essential. A big scarf is great to use as a blanket/pillow on the train.
