hey OP,
really think about what you actually need for a month.
On the 10th August I`ll have been travelling for 5 months and even I packed too much stuff, even though I managed to fit everything into a 60 litre backpack and a day pack.

You can use laundries/laundrettes or whatever.

It gets pretty hot in Spain this time of year, what can you be bringing???

Just take about 7-10 days of underwear/socks/etc, and a few days of clothing. Throw in some beach wear, and you're done!

Just go to a public laundry, or pay to have your clothes washed for you by your hotel. The price you pay for this a couple times over a month or so, would most likely be cheaper than if you paid the airlines to bring ALL of your stuff. Not to mention the fact that your trip would be easier if you don't have to lug ALL your worldly belongings with you.

Just because you're going for a month, doesn't mean you have to bring clothes for a month. :)

If it's not clothing that will be weighing your luggage down, maybe try putting the heaviest items into your carry on, and check the rest of the lighter items in the luggage? Just a thought.

Good luck with it, and enjoy your trip! :)

I do not suggest sending the excess because it can cost much more than paying for an extra bag of luggage.

Hey! one should always keep light while traveling,as the heavy luggage creates a lots of problems while traveling. It is not only difficult to manage it, but you will have to answers the questions of the different authorities as well.

Yeah iv been on the road almost a year now travelling through all weather conditions from snowboarding ion Japan and stupid heat in Thailand. all i have had is a bag weighing less than 15kg and my small hand luggage. and that has gradually got lighter and lighter because the things you think you will need you wont. only take the essentials and like others have said buy when you are there.

I got a great tip from Jimmy Saville, whilst travelling in a hot country, like Spain, just take one pair of underpants and just wash them at night. Next morning, hey presto, they are dry so wear them again. I always travel as light as possible, mainly because I hate waiting for luggage when I get off the plane.

There are lots of websites available that are a big help in making a packing list. Remember that you are on holiday, and do not need your whole wardrobe. Pack the absolute minimum, halve it, and you will still have too much stuff! I find it much easier to pack for a month on the road than a weekend with my folks!
