6 Unorthodox but Helpful Packing Tips for Interning Abroad

Global Experiences | June.27.2016

As boarding the plane to Dublin draws closer, packing has been on the brain. If you’re anything like me you have a love/ hate relationship with packing. The excitement of gathering all of your things to put in a suitcase means that you’ll be traveling somewhere new. It means that you're about to have new and exciting adventures. (I hope so at least). However packing also comes with some stress of internal questioning like; how many pairs of pants is too many? Is it necessary to take a blanket and pillow? Do I NEED to take shampoo and conditioner? What if I forget something? What am I ALLOWED to take?... Now everyone will have different internal conflicts inside of their head, and the answers to the abundance of questions you will ask yourself will all be different too. Remember you know about your own unique travels, what clothes make you feel comfortable, what you use on a daily basis. So trust me when I say, TRUST YOURSELF! You are a strong capable packer.
