A list of small things you might not have thought of to bring when packing for your study abroad trip…
1. Two clothespins. If you’re rinsing out your underwear and need to hang it to try or if you simply need to hold together some curtains to get an extra hour of sleep, clothespins are invaluable.
2. Postcards of your hometown. People will love to see where you’re from and pictures of your city will serve as an icebreaker for conversations.
3. Solar pocket calculator for foreign currency conversion.
4. Earplugs and eye mask. From the plane to the sounds of a new city, earplugs and an eye mask will get you some quiet when you need it.
