Fashionable Traveling

^my travel essentials wish list

I'm spending this fall semester studying abroad in Geneva, Switzerland. There will be plenty of weekend time for traveling, and subsequently I've become obsessed with acquiring ultimate travel tip lists from people who have done any type of study abroad, traveling, or backpacking in Europe or anywhere, really.

So what are your favorite traveling tips? Things you wish you would have known before you traveled? The one item you wish you would have brought and the one you ended up not needing? Tricks to looking semi-presentable when you are lacking showers and washing machines? Articles of clothing that are convertible for maximum packing space? And anything else you consider vital to traveling fashionably and smart.

Thanks for the help!
