In the summertime, it is common to see girls in short shorts and guys wearing gym shorts to mass. No one dresses up for church anymore in the US; my parents used to tell me how they used to dress up for Sunday services, and it was considered abnormal if you weren’t in your “Sunday best.” Here in Italy, it seems that this old tradition is still honored.

In one carry on I packed 9 pieces of clothing, 3 pairs of shoes, 1 pair of pajamas, undergarments, accessory bag, makeup bag, toiletries and my laptop and case!

If you have time to shop the numerous stalls you will run into across Bangkok and other parts of Thailand, then leave some empty space in your bag for your finds!
