What to Pack for Greece // 10 days in a Carry On

Before I share our photos from our Greece trip, I wanted to start off with a post on what to pack for Greece. We’re always trying to figure out ways to pack lighter. After this trip with our friend who is constantly traveling to remote parts of the world for work, we hope to eventually pack everything in a 17″ carry-on like her. Her packing is ridiculously impressive. For now, we both have a normal 21.5″ size carry on, but we left plenty of space for gifts to carry back home. Maybe we’ll try packing in one next time. :)

 lessons I’ve learned in hindsight (because we all make mistakes along the way)

  • Even though we checked the weather beforehand, going to Greece in late September meant it was moderately hot in Athens and Mykonos but windy and chilly in Santorini. Pack layers and get plenty of beach time in Mykonos because Santorini was too cold for a swim.
  • The outfit choices were perfect for this trip, but I wish I did some rearranging. For example, switching days 6 and 8 outfits had I known that donkey riding is very popular in Fira.
  • Do not wear sandals if you go down to the Port in Fira unless you take the cable car. You will be stepping on tons of donkey poo on the way down. My flip-flops are RIP in Greece. Good thing I have replacement sanuks (I always buy extra of something I love).
  • We also brought the 50mm/1.2L lens but didn’t use it at all, so I didn’t include it in my packing list
  • We also brought our waterproof phone case but didn’t end up using it because we didn’t snorkel at all. I would recommend bringing it if you plan on snorkeling/diving during your trip.

How do you pack for international trips?
