Study Abroad Packing List (Best Practices)

No logic behind but sometimes it becomes important to have a look into a wise written opinion (study abroad packing list). Especially for the first timers, when you are traveling abroad for the first time. A lot of things are running through your mind, what to and what not to do. Ideas flow rapidly, like the summer clouds. And chance to forget or omit enhances.

Unquestionably, with the invention of decentralized digital currency, it is always easy to buy anything anywhere without unnecessary billings and charges.. But problem is, it is not that common so far.

And before leaving, you always have to make sure if you are carrying all the necessary things with you.

Coming up is the definite study abroad packing list. Double check and tally it with yours.

But before, I want to share a story with you. I was watching a video online where a guy was giving some travel tips and showing his travel packing to the viewers. It was pretty awkward. I am sure you wanna look at it, (not because it is perfect, but because it is perfectly what you need to avoid). The countdown starts:

“Five underwear, six socks, seven jeans, eight shirts + 4 extra T-Shirts, Blah blah blah..” I mean what a load of crap that my eyes have seen. It was more than a study abroad packing list.

..something like, he is going to leave this earth permanently. And taking the pair of everything with him to grow the generation ( i.e. the pair of socks) of each object over there.

So the First thing First!

You’ll get anything there unless you are going to Afghanistan, Chechnya or Mogadishu.

So, only one count of each item (with some exceptions) is enough, either you are carrying or wearing. I have heard, people say, keep an extra shirt in case if the one you are wearing, gets dirty. What I believe, you can try to avoid but if somehow it happens, that’s very normal. The red is the new black, means it’s a vogue to be a little dirty or rough n tough. However, in worse scenarios you can manage to wash it too. No? Alright, then add another one.

And Lastly,

The reason why I’m saying to be simple and limited is, when you’ll be light, you’ll be in better position to walk, swim and fly all those paths, you haven’t mapped before. No extras, but only essentials for the first time.
