Passport? Check! Tickets? Check!Ugg Boots???

Packing up and moving your life overseas can be both an exciting and daunting task – how are you expected to squash your life into 25kg and squeeze it into a backpack before climbing on the big tin bird? The answer is basically to be brutal! Minimalism is key. Knowing you can buy clothing relatively cheaply in the UK also helps.
Here are some tips to help reduce luggage volume:
Download all your Teaching resources onto an external hard-drive/memory stick
Pack a 4 outlet powerboard and UK adapter
Waterproof Jacket
If arriving in Winter consider shipping Summer clothing over by freight at a later date (vice versa)
When Teaching you should wear smart-casual attire as a minimum (maybe a tie or two)
