There's something extra-special about summer for students. They get months of time off to pursue a dream, make some cash, perfect the art of chilling, or take classes — in Europe. For anyone studying abroad, we're sure they're counting the days until they're wheels-up and heading away.
We'd love to help, and with all the miles we've racked up in past summer trips, you'd think that putting together a go-bag would be second nature. But — unlike inside our carry-ons — we've got plenty of room (for improvement). If you're among the lucky ones looking to learn, explore, and generally live out of a suitcase this summer, Teen Vogue has rounded up 12 essential travel accessories to make sure you're going prepared. Click through for their packing list and then start making those memories. (Teen Vogue)
