How many bags should I bring?

I would suggest the following amount of bags/luggage you should bring along for your trip.

If you are staying in a certain location in Holland and living for more than 4 or 5 months, two large suit cases would be perfect. You can take a small carry on bag to put your laptop and electronics and of course have your purse with you as well.

If you will only be traveling for 2 or 3 weeks--I would recommend one smaller suite case and a nice large handbag that can be used as a purse and to carry your electronics in one. The last thing you want to do is lug around bags of luggage on trains and subways as you travel from various cities and countries. Plus, you will more than likely wear your clothing items more than once. Pack clothing items you can wear over again.

Here are a couple bags that I purchased and highly recommend. I wanted to make sure I had a nice travel cosmetics bag and also a shoulder purse of some sort.

Lesportsac Cosmetics Bag-
Value between $48 and $78 US dollars.
You can visit the following websites or check your nearest department stores. They are water proof, pack really well in your suite case and you can wash them in the washing machine and they look good as new!
Nordstroms Rack

I HIGHLY RECOMMEND that you buy some sort of a shoulder bag and use as a purse to store your money, camera, cell phone, etc. This way all of your items are locked to your body and there are no pockets for people to take from you. It's always good to be alert when you are traveling and make sure you're items are secure! Here is the nice bag I purchased. It's not too big and not too small...perfect size for traveling.

You can visit the website above or again, find at a local retail store near you. Price can vary from $60-$100 US dollars.
