Pack With Me : School Trip Edition !!
How to Pack For an Overseas Class Trip
Read your destination country and school regulations on what you can bring.Most of the country guidelines can be found on their respective websites. Don't go overboard and risk getting your items confiscated!
To avoid overpacking, stick to the list of what you need to bring.Tape a list of items you are bringing to your suitcase to avoid lost items.
Ask your teacher if there's anything special that you should bring.For example, on a trip to a non-English speaking country, it might be wise to bring a foreign language dictionary.
Bring books about the area you are going to.You can borrow one from a family member, friend, or borrow it from the library.
Choose the correct clothing for your trip.Check the weather forecast for your destination and determine what they weather will be like.
- If it will be very cold, or snowing, bring a heavy jacket, mittens or gloves, a hat, and waterproofed boots or shoes.
- If the weather will be moderate (spring or fall-like temperatures), bring a light jacket and clothing to layer.
- If the weather should be hot and sunny, pack light pants and short sleeve shirts. Also consider packing a light jacket for evenings.
Pack all of your clothing.Ask your teacher or chaperon if you will be able to do laundry on your trip. If so, bring a few foreign coins to pay for it.
Pack an umbrella and a waterproof jacket with a hood in case it rains.It is recommended to bring a collapsible umbrella and a light waterproof jacket, so they can fit in your suitcase or backpack.
Bring a phone card so that you can call your family when you feel homesick.You can also buy one at your location. Remember to bring any phone numbers you might need to remember.
- If you have access to WiFi at your destination, you can also catch up with them via video calling or instant messaging,
Bring a photo of your family.Even people who have never been homesick can feel homesick when in a different country.
Pack a journal and a pen or pencil so you can record your experiences.If you are bringing a diary, it is best to find a place to hide it, if you are sharing a room with other people. Bonus points if your diary has a lock
Bring a camera and more film than you think you need or a digital camera.You may find yourself taking as many as 50 photos a day.
Think about options for money.Your trip won't cover that, so you will need traveler's checks or something like a debit card which can be used to get cash from an ATM machine. You might also want to get some money from your local bank in your destination's currency before you leave, or trade them at a currency exchange.
Pack your toiletries (soap, toothpaste, feminine hygiene products, etc.). Many hotels provide soap and shampoo for free. Try to get travel sized toiletries or transfer your existing toiletries into a travel sized bottle.
Pack a carry-on bag for the airplane.You might want to include snacks, a book, a music player, or even small travel games. If you can, check the website of the airplane your class is going on so you can know what they offer.
To maximize what you can carry in the suitcase, wear your most bulkiest clothing (mainly a jacket, but it can be a sweater or another heavy shirt) on the way.

- You might want to bring something that comforts you, like a stuffed animal or even a snack (also remember to check the food guidelines as well).
- Most countries don't allow you to bring in a lot of food from a different country. Pack enough snacks for the plane and buy more in your destination.
- Buy an outlet adapter. American plugs won't work in Europe/ Asia, just as their plugs won't work in America. This is essential if you plan on charging anything or using a hair dryer while overseas.
- Pack lightly. If you don't, it'll be you who has to haul that heavy suitcase all over the world.
- Don't bring anything dangerous. You can get in trouble with airport security and hold your entire group up.
- Find out about the cultural customs of the country that you're visiting before you go. In some countries, for example, it's impolite or even prohibited to wear shorts or have your hair exposed (for women) in religious buildings.
