What I Brought to London for a Month

June 26, 2017




Between finals, turning 20, and planning to study abroad in London, June has been crazy! Alas, I have finally arrived in London—in fact I am sitting in the Heathrow airport right now— and I am pretty confident in everything that is sitting in my one checked bag, still with plenty of room in it, and one carryon backpack.  


Here is what I brought:

2. Important documents (identification as a student, directions, syllabus, etc.)

3. Laptop

4. Phone

5. Camera (if not using phone)

6. Credit/ Debit cards

7. Headphones

8. Chargers (get portable too)

9. Empty, refillable water bottle

10.  Converter

11.  Toothbrush and toothpaste

12.  Floss (get those little picks, they are game changers)

13.  Retainer (if needed)

14.  Chapstick

15.  Gum

18.  Feminine hygiene products

19.  Medication, vitamins, sleeping pills, cough drops, and Pepto Bismol tablets

28.  2-3 pairs of pajamas

29.  2 Long-sleeve shirts

30.  1 Sweater

33.  Shorts

34.  Scarf

35.  3 pairs of socks
