While you are on your semester abroad you will be able to find most everything you need, it may not be the specific name brand you are used to in the US, but you will be able to find what you need! That being said, there are some things that will just help you feel more comfortable and are things you may not have thought about. Here are a few things you don't necessarily need, but you should consider packing!
Your bags are packed and you're ready to go? All you have to do now is head to the airport and you're good!

Try these tips to help you fly in peace, and maybe even enjoy it!

I’m completely hooked on spending $15 (or less!) a night for a place to stay. So long, hotels! These options are way cooler and lets you save tons of money.

Wait...I can get unlimited data and texting for the time I'm living abroad through ILP? Yes. Yes, you can.
One of the best parts of traveling abroad is all the new-ness. Each city has unique things to see which is awesome, but sometimes it can be overwhelming figuring out how to soak it all in! Here are our tips on how to explore a new city.
A big part about traveling is shopping, right? From the rad street food to those souvenirs you can’t live without, you won’t get very far if you don’t know how to pay for things in a foreign country.
I don't really know anyone who has never dreamed a little about exploring Italy. Or if you're like me...dreamed A LOT about exploring Italy. If you're volunteering in Europe with ILP, Italy is actually a lot more possible than you may be thinking...especially since I found a roundtrip flight for your vacation for less than $100!
