At GoWithCEA.com we just created a Study Abroad Packing Suggestions page on our website to help with your plight. I have also posted a few additional tips below.
- Check the TSA's current restrictions for items at www.tsa.gov
- Bring easy to wash clothes, focus on nice looking comfortable clothes that are not dry clean only. With the exception of one dressier out-fit for any special occasions that might arise.
- Check out the climate, you do not want to show up in Berlin with a suitcase full of shorts in the middle of January.
- Bring a power converter so you don't fry your gear. Remember a lot of countries do not have the same type of power or plug that the US does. Make sure you have the proper adapters for the country you are going to. The last thing you want to do is get to the host country to realize that you need to go to the local electronics store to make everything you lugged half way around the world work.
