What to Pack

The best kind of luggage is the lightest. Participants should not bring luggage or accessories that they cannot carry themselves. We suggest one piece of luggage so that participants are able to carry their own bag.

If you are travelling by air, we recommend that you consult the airline you are traveling with to confirm their luggage policy.

Here is a useful checklist of personal items:
