Suppose it will depend where you go.  You've probably got more chance in some countries than others.

Gonna take a summer quilt and my pillow, ipod, touch (with wireless internet), photos of family and friends, money belt, some going out clothes, maybe a fancy dress outfit (you never know), couple of bikinis, towel, travel iron, 7 months worth of the pill (will need to visit the doctor and explain why he needs to give me that many), bath mat thing that stops you slipping in the shower, headache tablets, beechems resolve, vitamins.

 

A million other things that I won't even of thought of yet!!!  Will definately need to buy some compression bags so that it all fits in.

Yeh im gonna need to get the pill too. Its so much harder than just packing for a weeks holiday isnt! Surely you can get quilts, pillows and bath mats in the hypermarkets when your there? Mind you i guess if we get a higher allowance of kg, we may as well use it! x

I think it will depend on where you go.  If you go to somewhere like Magaluf then you're not gonna find a bedding shop, you'd probably have to go to Palma or another main town to buy it.  If I've got room in my case then gonna take it as it will make me feel at home on my first night.

I have worked in Portugal and Magaluf and they have supermarkets, they sell most things. Out of expierience tho they dont tell you your allowence until the day you fly, but that mite of chnged now. (i travelled out 2004, 2005 and 2006) Also at the training you may get big folders etc TC gave us loads!!!  and you have to take them as that tells you the INs and Outs of the job etc. But again that mite f changed, thought I would let you know

Girls getting the pillwont be a rpoblem i get 10-12 months worth at a time... And do your companies not supply pillows just take a pillow case from home and a fleecy blanket if your in a hot country you will probs not even need the duvet. Id defo take more going out at night clothes then anything nothing workse then always goingout in the same outfit

I agree LiLaura, but won't we be in our uniform even in the evenings? I guess i will be because as a childrens rep i have to do pyjama parties etc. Im sure we would be given a pillow...surely? Who on earth needs a duvet in summer!!x
