I am leaving my country to move overseas. I will miss all of my friends here while I am away from the internet. My wife and I have an entire house to empty so we can let others live here while we are gone. I am spending many hours every day getting ready.
There is so much to do when leaving your country.
Many things have to be sold and others put in storage, or given away for someone who can use them. We will recycle all the unusable items, of course.
Other than that, I have very busy times ahead, such as deciding what I can bring with me in the limited space of an airplane.
A few books, clothes, and of course my laptop?
My wife will follow in a few weeks with her items.
What would you take if you had move away and were going to be gone for a few years?
Keep in mind you can have one small carry-on bag and a larger bag or trunk in the luggage compartment of the plane.
Seriously, what would you bring and what would you leave?
Maybe you can help me with your suggestions. Weight and space are both a problem. As an English teacher, I must bring some of my books. What else should I try to squeeze into a trunk?
I will not be able to answer your comments, but I will try to get to see your suggestions.
I will tell you where I am after all of my visa and other papers are approved. Maybe English teachers are too undesirable :) for immigrants, so I will be quiet about the final destination until we both have arrived. :)))
Thank you for any suggestions!
