something fashion blogger spain valencia erasmus year packing list, what to pack to firenze florence italy

Valencia-Pisa flight. Check. Cute and spacious student home away from home, with a couple of architecture students to share. Check. Italian lessons online and a slight idea on how to communicate abroad. Check. Seriously guys, I can't believe it's almost time to leave and start pursuing a year full of experiences, a new language in my CV and a life away from home, family and friends. I'm so excited!

One of the things that is really, really worrying me is how the heck I'm going to pack a year of clothes and stuff to live in a country that I barely know, with a weather I'm not familiar with and with a daily routine still unknown. Yes, I'm that kind of girl who likes to have anything under control, and I can't help tossing around this thoughts when it comes to the Erasmus year abroad! I'm leaving in mid september hopefully, so, I'll have to figure out how to pack a whole suitcase and no carry-on (as I can't cope with the fact that we'll be taking a couple of trains and public transport to get to our new home at Firenze. All that, dealing with cobblestone streets while pulling a couple of suitcases, in an unknown place? No thanks) which will be substituted for a huge backpack.

So, I've been already wondering around for a couple of months what should I bring to Firenze, and what my packing list for Italy should be like, and this is what I've concluded:

// Sportswear

  • 2 sports bra
