If you’re wondering how you’re going to fit your whole life and various lifestyles into two suitcases, you have found the right article.
I recognize college students need an in depth list of what to pack while planning on schooling overseas, and all of us get irritated whilst someone says “it’s very easy”. Maybe you are developing a Europe packing list or Southeast Asia packing list, there are some basic things common to all of them. So, I’ve put together the whole thing I believe you may in all likelihood need or want when you begin your journey overseas, maintaining in mind differences in both men and women. I wouldn’t anticipate you to pack the whole lot I’ve listed, so use your very own discretion.
The first in the list of your packing necessity is a carry-on bag. It could be;
· A small hand bag,
· A smaller duffel bag or
· A backpack.
Even if you have little or no plan on traveling very much over break periods, having a
backpack or duffel bag that meets all airline requirements and is very comfortable
to carry over the shoulders is a great idea. This also helps you always keep vital documents close by to you.
This goes into your next suit case. By mixing and placing the outfits in layers saves a ton of space for you in your suitcase. To further help you in your packing make sure to check the predicted weather for your destination before traveling so you can dress
Remember to pack enough pants. Around six pairs of pants (maximum!) should be enough. It is very important you pack pants that you can wear more than once a week (so reduce or totally remove those tons of brightly colored
pants, girls). You should preferably bring dark jeans.
It is also important you do a little research about your destination country and the kinds of clothes widely accepted in it.
Following that list you are nearly totally ready for your adventurous trip.
Please remember that different countries have different voltage levels, most of your current electronic items may need an outlet converter in order to work properly it is also advised you wait until your arrival at your destination before buying new appliances. Items such as your blow dryer or hair straightener may blow up if plugged into the wrong voltage output. The same story goes for your laptops, phones and televisions, basically any appliance you plug to electricity.
Please to avoid any misunderstandings remember to check if the medications you are carrying with you are legally accepted in the country you’re heading to.
You can get all the information you need by contacting the country’s embassy. Some
Over-the-counter medications (medications without proper prescription) are illegal in some countries.
Remember to add allergy medicine to your arsenal if you have any adverse effect to any situation. You can also add;
