As I start to pack for my next adventures in the North, I have thought of some words of wisdom to give when it comes to packing!
My time in Pune has come to a close, thus, the time has come for the obligatory advice blog post for future Alliance students or just anyone who reads this who is planning on visiting India.
Stressful packing, tearful goodbyes, and the imminent exhaustion pushes on my shoulders, but the overall feelings of excitement and anticipation make my struggles worth it.
T-minus 8 days until I fly to Mumbai. Technically I am already halfway there. My parents live in Germany and I am visiting them for the month of January. So I only have to fly from Europe to India, not from the U.S.
My flight to Pune, India is fourteen days away and it still doesn't seem real. I don't think it will really hit me until I finally land in Mumbai after about twenty-five long hours of travel and a dozen or so anxiety dreams.
While considering what to pack for a semester abroad in India, I found it immensely helpful to read through the packing posts written by the Alliance student bloggers.
Your quintessential packing list blog post, tailored specifically to the Manipal experience! Use this along with the packing list the Alliance provides you with.
Since my time in India is slowly coming to a close, I know that it is time for everyone’s favorite blog post—the packing list blog post. This is an unofficial must-do, in my mind, for any blogger.
So it's the day before you leave and you're figuring out how to stuff a week's worth of living into a carry-on and a backpack. I've been there! Some things are obvious (i.e. clothes, toothbrush, cell phone) but others can be easily forgotten.
Whenever I go on a trip, either for a few days or a year, I tend to over pack everything. I have extra dresses I never wear, books that I never read, shoes that I never wear and never enough underwear.
