When Does The Next Ocean Liner Leave?

This is a steamer trunk.  They were popular in the late 1800s, early 1900s.  

This is how I need to travel.  This is my kind of luggage.

I've successfully narrowed the packing for our European vacation down to two small bags. I did a practice run with all the things I think I'll need to see if everything will fit.  
I've mixed and matched clothing and found a few pairs of shoes that will work.  I'm probably going to take more shoes than I need because, with my big feet, I can't risk not having something that works.  Shopping in the United States for shoes is traumatic enough for me, I can't even imagine shopping for them in a foreign country.

But as I was thinking about packing, and the trip, and what I needed and wanted with me, I started thinking about how other people travel.  And how people used to travel.  And I came to a realization.  

I'm totally a steamer trunk kind of girl. 

I'm not the backpacking-through-Europe type. 

I'm not the living-out-of-a-duffel-bag type. 

I'm not even the pack-everything-in-a-roll-on-bag type. 

I'm not even a throw-my-hair-in-a-ponytail-and-go-for-a-burger girl.

I need things. And I'm indecisive.  I'm terrible and making decisions about what I need and what I can't do without.

I can't even condense my purse, for Chrissake.
