This week after returning from the desert I have had my mind completely on packing and prepping for Europe. We will be spending most of our time in Paris while we work, but will also be touring, and seeing the sights. I am thinking about what the weather will be like, the fact I need comfy walk all day/stylish shoes, and that I will need layers to keep me warm on those rainy Fall Paris days.

I am also very seriously considering a backpack for our travels. I think it would be the best for our day trips and full days of working while we shoot, so of course I am in love with that one from Madewell.

Any of you who have been to Europe, do you have recommendations? How do you plan what you pack for over a month and a half of travel?

Hello! I’m Megan Gilger,

A strong believer that nature and the seasons are our greatest teachers. We live on a hill in Leelanau County, Michigan just a stone’s throw from Lake Michigan. This land we are responsible for is where we are focused on building a life around the seasons and intention. We spend our days here building a regenerative model of living and focusing our garden on native plants and intensive polyculture planting styles. My focus is less on self-sufficiency and more on community-sufficiency through how we grow and connect through the seasons.
