    Things to Bring along...

    Advertisements



    Any suggestions ideas anyone? I know for sure we need to bring an external hard drive, maybe a printer, a good laptop lock, and lots of warm clothes for the snowy winter.

    Bring few notebooks if you prefer. Also, see if you can buy books from Amazon or Ebay. Ebay or Amazon are cheaper than bookstore. You can pretty much get everything from there. Ooh Take Warm blanket #4, #5 is too warm because rooms are little heated too.

    don't bring a printer. They're cheap enough here and they're too heavy (you get 2x50lbs on the flight... weight becomes important) to warrant bringing over (plus the plug issue). Make sure all the electronics have ac adapters that go 110-240v or so, as that makes converting them to the local plugs easy (just buy a plug adaptor) vs hunting for new ac transformers that kill your devices half the time.
    The one thing I wish i'd have brought was my ihome. They have far fewer ipod accessories here than the states (I was literally told to look for an alarm clock with a doc in Warsaw), so get all that sorted out stateside. Oh, and get your cell unlocked... that way you can just stick a new sim into it and you'll be ready to go.
    cosmetics/personal products I'd bring if you have room (more for girls, I guess... unless you're picky about aftershave or somesuch). They have most things here (same brands, etc), but since they're made in diff factories you WILL see a difference in many things. Then again that depends oh how picky you are about those things. Oh, and (again, for girls) nailpolish remover. I don't know why, but the stuff you get at 99c store is like 10x stronger than the stuff here... it's worth it to bring a bottle.
    The same principle applies to study supplies and whatever else. A good rule of thumb is to assume you'll find close approximates, but not the exact items you do in the states (though often you will), so if you like a specific item/brand and you can, take it with you.

    Proly cheaper and easier to do it in Poland. There are cell phone stores all over the place that will do it for a few zl. ATT and the rest will charge you out the butt to do it.

    I was told that gloves, shoe covers, etc we should get once we get here... I'd assume those go along the same lines (unless you have them already, i guess... not sure)
