Minimalist Packing for Europe with 19L Tom Bihn Backpack

Here we show you how a Minimalist packs for 2 weeks in Europe! We got some Tom Bihn Synapse 19 backpacks per Brittany Taylor’s video on it. They’re pricey but oh so worth it. They are made TOUGH and so well. Made in the USA. I like supporting american products so that’s what we did. We took only the basics and I’ll say even still probably took a little more than we should have! If you can’t fit everything you’re bringing with this and a personal item, you’re bringing too much.

Declutter your vacation and bring only the essentials. Those essentials will vary person to person and depend on climate.
