Travel Tips & Packing

Learning how to pack for a trip abroad is a process. Over the years, I've learned something new from every trip I've made. There are so many variables to consider...climate, season, country, activities, etc. This section is all about essential items that I think are important to take during a two-week trip overseas. I've created a printable packing list, so you have a guide. I've broken everything down into sections to provide additional information and suggestions on what type of items I typically take. Please remember these are suggestions, and nothing is a required purchase to go on any of the trips. I believe helping parents and students identify essential items is essential, especially if this is your first trip out of the country.
