Have no idea what to pack for a year? I’m with you! However this is a list of what I’m taking to Panama for a year.

Packing was actually kinda hard for me because I have a lot of clothes suited for cold weather and not a lot for the scorching heat I expect in Panama. I don’t want to bring clothes that looks like I’m on vacation and nothing that might be considered inappropriate. My limit for my suitcase was 50Ibs and my carry on was… I don’t remember!

Keep in mind that you can buy stuff in your host country. However you don’t want to buy anything that is more expensive there, then where you’re from. Now the stuff!
