I wanted to just take out my own pillow, just incase i get a rock hard one, nothing is worse than having a hard pillow and then u cant sleep!! I agree with LilLaura, will be taking most of my wardrobe, just because i dont want to leave anything behind! Im prob taking a couple fancy dress outfits as well!! x x x x

Im soo skint, that its not an option for me. Theres so much info flying around about 'you get 60kg allowance' 'you get 20kg allowance' etc etc, and no information is coming from the actual company, its soooooo annoying don't you think? I just want to know where im going, when my training is, what company brand im working for and what my allowance is, as im a really organised person, but its hard to arrange stuff when you don't know key information! On the other hand, i guess its spontaneous :D xx

Vaccum bags are a good idea, however, it doesnt change the weight of the items, just means you can fit more in your case.

One more thing.  I used my bank card last night and saw that it expires in June.  Gonna have to tell the bank that I've lost it so that I will get a new one before I go.  It would be a nightmare to get out there and not be able to get money out of the machine!
 
Might be worth having a look at yours.
