Where do I begin?

How do you even begin to pack for four months in a foreign country?

How do you pack for four months period?

What will I need, what will I want, what will the weather be like, should I pack only normal clothes or should I bring some dresses, what if I feel like getting spiffed up (who am I kidding?), should I wait and just buy it when I get there, what if I need that one thing that I forgot.

I hate this is a nightmare.

I am also a list person, so I tried to start a list of things I'll need...then I realized I don't know anything that I will need.

So I started with the weather. The average temp. during the four months we will be there is in the 70's and 80's. YES!
But's also Typhoon season...

Also, you can only bring two suitcases weighing 75lbs each.
That sounded like a lot until I realized that's pretty much what I packed for our honeymoon.

I think I'll just throw every t-shirt and pair of shorts I own, a rain jacket, and my chacos into a suitcase and go with it.

Oh, and maybe a toothbrush.

  1. You won't need as much as you think! Of course, I'm just basing this off of my Vienna trip, but I only packed one suitcase and still felt like I over packed! I would definitely bring some dresses, because you will want to look nice every once in a while.
