Can you believe it’s almost November?!

We’re so excited that so many of you have already signed up to come abroad with us this summer — WE CAN’T WAIT! We want to take this time to ensure that we’ve got you covered in assisting with all of your study abroad travel preparations. In their respective links, check out what we recommend to wear in Greece, Rome, and Cape Town if you haven’t already. Additionally, we’re going to include packing tips for you for each of the trips. Thanks to the Go Global Community Leaders, we have a lot of input and advice to share with y’all that should help you make your trip the best it can be! First up, a packing list from a student on LEAD Cape Town:

Of course, this is A) a packing list for a girl, and B) a packing list for cooler weather. Boys: don’t worry — a “what to wear/what to pack” list will be coming just for you! If you’re going on the Cape Town trip — the biggest advice we can give is that you pack more warm clothes than you think you will need. If you’re going on the Greece trip or the Rome trip — you will need to bring summer clothes! Lucky you! Swimsuits, tons of dresses and dressy tops…you get the idea from reading the What to Wear series. As for electronics etc., this packing list has it covered. Make sure that you also bring with you any school supplies you might need. This includes the Blue Book that you will receive in the mail prior to departure, pens, a notebook, and a folder. Of course, you’ll also need your money, your passport, and all of your travel papers.

Soon, be on the lookout for a post about what to bring with you on your flight and a post about everything luggage related.

Let’s get organized!
