The Ultimate Packing Guide

GV Beius Romania 2013

Note: This is just a list of suggestions! If you have any questions, please let me know!

Personal Items...

  • Prescription medications and Simple first aid supplies.
  • Toiletry items (Face cloths are non-existent in Europe) & dental care (tooth pick, floss) – Make sure you pack a towel too! Our host family does not provide towels!
  • Family photos to show new friends
  • Neck pouch for passport (superior to fanny packs or money belts worn on the exterior)
  • Passport and 2 copies of your passport ID page (in separate places in your luggage… just in case!)
  • Emergency contact phone and FAX numbers of family/friends in the US.
  • ATM Card/cash/etc… You can use your ATM cards in all locations to take our the currency in Hungary and Romania. This proves to be a lot easier than taking traveler’s checks!

Working items...

  • Shoes (one sandals or flip-flops, one casual nice, one for muddy work/hiking)
  • One nice, special outfit (for church, airline travel)
  • Daily work and play clothes
  • Romanian weather tends to be warm during this time of year, but we might have cooler mornings. I suggest bringing pants and shorts to work in, plus long sleeve and short sleeve t-shirts.
  • Lightweight waterproof jacket or lined windbreaker/sweat shirt/sweat pants
  • Hat for rain and shine!
  • Work Gloves
  • Sunscreen and sunglasses (maybe even a bathing suit, you never know!)

Travel items...

  • Travel alarm clock, if you like them
  • Folding umbrella
  • Camera, film, extra batteries
  • Games/cards/puzzles/etc
  • An extra set of clothes in your carry-on luggage (just in case!)
  • Bug Repellent for the evenings and sun screen for the days
