One of the super cool things about being a student blogger this past semester is that I had prospective DIS students reach out to me over the course of the past four months to ask questions about the classes I was taking, where I was living, and how I was liking Copenhagen. As the Spring 2018 semester prepares to leave their homes for Denmark in the coming days (you have no idea how jealous I am of all of you!) I thought it would be helpful to recap some of the questions I got during the semester!
Like I’ve mentioned in most of my packing list posts, I really, really, love packing lists. Like, an inordinate amount. So naturally, I made a packing list for studying abroad, which I posted here. However, I thought it might be helpful for any prospective/upcoming DIS students out there reading if I went through my packing list and recapped it—what I’m glad I brought, what I could have lived without, and what I bought.
I’m back! And now that I’ve been abroad for an entire semester, I’m bringing my “Study Abroad 101” series back too!
If you know anything about me, you know that packing lists are my jam. I make them for basically everything. So naturally, I made a packing list for studying abroad. And by “a” packing list, I actually mean I made approximately seven packing lists because I thought it would help but actually it didn’t and I maybe ended up crying on the floor of my bathroom deciding how many tubes of toothpaste to bring. (I’m bringing one).
This is the first in what I hope to have become a series–anyone who knows me personally knows that I have a bit of an obsession when it comes to packing lists, and have been known to make more packing lists than days on a trip. Because I consider myself to be a bit of an expert on packing lists at this point, I thought I’d share with you my packing list for Segovia. Keep in mind that I was there for two weeks at the beginning of the summer–depending on the duration and time of year during your visit, you’ll have to modify accordingly.
