Two Essential Packing List For Studying Abroad.





You're leaving the country. You may not be starting a new life, but you are starting a new chapter of you life.

You're gonna need to bring a lot of stuff and be able to condense it into a small space.
Why?

You won't have a giant house to store all your junk. You only need to bring essentials.

Airline bag fees are expensive. Even if you've got the money...Why possibly spend 100's of extra dollars to haul some shit across the world that you may never use.

After months of being abroad and traveling, Both heavy and light...I've come up with TWO packing list.

The first, being your initial departure list and the second, being your travel destination bag.
Here's what you need for your Initial Departure Packing list





First thing I can't stress enough for success is a Cell Phone
The Importance Of A Cellphone
I  addressed this in a earlier post. It is in your best interest to get a inexpensive unlocked cell phone on your own terms as opposed to struggling to get one while you are struggling in a new country
I saved a lot of expenses on miscellaneous other things and was able to spring for a inexpensive 100 dollar android phone and pay 10Euro for a prepaid service with a Data plan.
Its not hard to find a inexpensive/non contract service plan abroad.

Now we can get into the hard packing. I packed one big suitcase, a duffel bag  and a large sized backpack
Ill address the backpack an its importance later.


2 weeks of socks, underwear, undershirts
1.5 (10) shirts
4 pairs of pants
2 pairs of shorts
2 hoodies
2 coats. ( Make sure at least one coat is water resistant
Set of Gloves and beanies ( Real winter gloves)

If you are going somewhere warm or for a summer semester. You can trade the coat and go with a windbreaker. The gloves can also be traded for something else.
This should only take about half of your suitcase if everything is rolled.
This allows you to have enough clothes to last you at least 6 months and swap everything out. No one should even notice you don't have 10 wardrobes to choose from.

You should also be prepared to share washing machines and or have no drier. I've noticed that in many countries, even "1st world" don't use driers as much. 
But if you have a good schedule, you'll never run out of clothes or have nothing to wear.


With you extra space. you should be able to fit 3 pairs of shoes.
1 of these pairs should be running shoes.
1 should be a sort of dress shoe if you can spring for it

Suit jacket or Blazer or dress clothes.
This is one of those things you will regret not bringing.
Not every place is gonna let you in  wearing jeans and a sweatshirt and not many random bum students will have clothes like this.
You wanna set yourself apart and have some style.



Cosmetic bag
- Toothbrush, Razor, Ect  whatever you need
I actually suggest that you don't bring a stockload of your favorite products. A lot of liquids wont make it through the airport and they take up space. You will be able to buy them in your new home.

Laptop.
Portable hard drive  - Its not the best idea to download/torrent in Germany
Portable speakers - Unless you plan to shell out money for a TV. You will not have one in your room. You shouldn't need one either.. go outside.
*But I feel like a decent pair of portable speakers will raise your quality of life. You might invite a girl over and want to play some music. You might just want to watch a show on your laptop and want more sound. I bought a pair of these Logitech Portable Speakers years ago for less than 30 dollars. They came with a case that could fit in a backpack. Sadly they no longer sell them

Earphones
Protection Earplugs : Clubs get loud..these are barely noticeable. I valued my hearing . You might be in clubs and bars a lot. The people living around you might be loud as shit and you wanna tune it out.
Earplugs should be higher on the list..You won't realize how well these come in handy

Plug Converters.
such as USD/Euro converter
You're gonna feel stupid if you think ever place has the same sort of power outlets, and the little money you have will be ripped from you if you try to buy these in the airport.

A Digital Camera.
I happen to be a camera enthusiast and wanted a high tech camera for my travels. But I wasnt gonna lug around a bulky DSLR.
I bought one of these Nikon p7000 years ago and I've won photo contest with the pictures I've taken with it.
For the average person. A basic camera will be enough for you. Camera technology is so up to date that you can do everything with damn near any camera.

Haha. You think I'm joking..Buy yourself a big box of condoms. Sure..you might not use them all. But better safe than sorry. I bought a giant box of condoms and put them in baggies to save space. 
You're gonna be traveling a lot. Meeting girls left and right in countries you've never been before. Be honest with yourself. You're not gonna buy condoms when you get of the train in a new city. just keep them in your travel pack at all times




The Alpha Playboy by Christian McQueen  Is  a book that has an in dept look at style for young males coming up in the world.
 I wish I had it as a resource years ago and suggest you take a look at it.
