So you're moving abroad for a year..or maybe more. There's nothing quite like the anticipation of a big trip and this is certainly BIG! Moving overseas is an exciting adventure, filled with the opportunity to explore places, meet new people and have unique experiences that you just can't have at home.
Whether you're travelling with a group, a friend or going solo, there's one thing that is for sure. No matter how much fun you're having, you're going to hit some walls. Whether it's not being able to find your way around, missing foods from home or red tape dilemmas. You could even be hitting some road blocks before you leave just deciding what to pack... I mean how do you fit a whole life into a suitcase? And, how can you possibly predict what may be an essential item compared to a nice to have or even I'll never use it kind of thing?
Well, we were definitely guilty of packing quite a few 'never take it out of the case' items. Luckily, we had family and friends who could ferry things back to Australia from the UK for us and bring us over a few items that we wished that we had packed. Postage is super expensive, so its best to get it right before you leave. So, after learning the hard way, we've got you covered with our top 5 essentials that you MUST include when packing to move abroad.
