    Heading to Europe & Not Sure What to Pack? Here are a few things that my fellow US travelers may want to avoid packing if they are traveling to Europe.
    1. Baseball Caps: Europeans in general do not wear baseball caps, especially backwards. You would be better served to wear a more traditional hat. You will see an occasional NY Yankee hat, but why not buy the fancy hat you always wanted instead?
    2. Athletic Wear: Europeans tend to wear athletic wear to do sports, not to wear around town. There is a trend of more athleisurewear in Europe, but it is not to the extent that there is in US.
    3. Khakis: the omnipresent US male pant choice is not something you will see too often in Europe. Go for colored pants or jeans. If you want khaki like pants wear Chinos instead of Dockers. The pants you will see are a thinner cut or "skinnier" fit than in the US.
    4. Oversized US University Sweatshirts.
    5. Sport Shoes or High Heals: US sport shoes and white socks are not quite as popular in Europe as they are in the US. You may be better off with Urban Street shoes like Vans instead. Also, women should be careful with high heels as with all the cobblestone it is easy to hurt your ankles.

Please Note: This Video is for 35+ year old US travelers heading to Europe. Young Europeans do wear most of these styles and trends, but the 35+ European crowd do not wear them to the same extent. And the locals won't care what you wear, so this is more to help you blend in a bit better. Great travels to you all & Thank you for all the comments & subscriptions.

As a woman, I found staying away from shorts, jeans, and tee shirts, especially in Italy, helped me blend in more. Stick with slightly nicer tops, trousers, skirts, and dresses. Also, in Catholic countries if you want to go in cathedrals and churches you must have your shoulders and knees covered or you wear the dreaded paper dress. But stick to these tips and you might even be mistaken for a French woman like I once was in Venice.

You know, I like how Europeans are complaning about Americans, how loud they are, they think Europe is a country, etc, yet, they don't know that everyone is different (yes! Americans to! What a shocker!) They are loud to (I heard loud obnoxious Europeans tourist the other day) we know Europe is a content, (would you rather have us list every European country every time instead of Europe) In American I'm not loud, I'm not over weight (nether is my family or friends, not everyone in usa is fat, what a shocker!) I hate trump I hate McDonald's, Not every one in usa is white, USA is bigger then Europe Each state is different in culture, climet, building type, (in florida there's a lot of Cubans along with a few Mexicans, and cuban food, houses are brick, tropical hot, no mountains, in New Mexico, houses are stucco, there are lots of mountains, most people speak Spanish, most people are Mexicans or Hispanic, a lot of spicy, Mexican food, deastert hot,) Each state has there own culture, so stop saying untrue stereo types, and get your facts right

I've been living in Europe all my life, i've experienced 3 violent robberies in my life. All the muggers and thugs who rob people wear sportswears and/or baseball caps. Also there are a lot of poor suburbs and parts of cities where literally EVERYBODY looks like that. So if you go to Europe, just wear your adidas sweat pants and baseballcaps, you'll be safer that way because people might think you're either poor or a potential criminal.
