What to Pack - Adam GroffmanBALCIHWEWE! That’s the sound I make when packing. I don’t know about you, but I always leave packing as one of the last things I do before a trip. I usually scribble a short list down in the few days before leaving reminding me to bring certain things (glasses, baseball cap, PASSPORT!) but I inevitably leave the packing for the last hours before running off to the airport.

While packing for my current trip — my one month studying Spanish in Spain — I actually prepared quite a bit in advance. This was my first “big” trip in a while, and because I knew I’d be living in an apartment in Seville (booked through my study abroad program), I knew I’d need to bring certain things. If there’s one thing I’ve learned from all the times I’ve studied abroad (this is sort-of my third time studying abroad, but it must be my gazillionth time living abroad), it’s the importance of bringing things with you to remind you of home. So for me that’s always meant a bit more planning in my study abroad packing lists.
