The Ultimate Packing List for Studying Abroad In Spain In Undergrad

I had the opportunity to study abroad in Salamanca, Spain during undergrad. It was one of the best decisions I made and one that I have such fond memories of. I highly recommend studying abroad during your undergrad, it's worth every penny.


Barcelona, Spain

This was my attempt to fit 7 weeks' worth of clothes in one suitcase. When it comes to packing, use your judgment. If you are going in the summer then don’t pack ten pairs of jeans and one pair of short. It’s bloody hot, pack cute dresses, skirts, and shorts because Spain in the summer is ridiculously hot.
