Reading up on a lot of travel guides has me excited and nervous over...how to dress
Okay, I'm freaking out about what I'm going to wear over there. It was easy to pack for university in Ottawa as I just threw a lot of hoodies and sweatshirts and god knows what else into a box. After all, anyone can roll out of bed and go to classes, and everyone wears jeans and may or may not dress up to go out. Over there, I want to "fit in", but I know that no matter what I wear I'm going to stand out anyway. I'm saying to myself: what kind of shoes do they wear in Reykjavik? Definitely not sneakers, but that's my staple footwear! And what kind of tops do they wear? I don't have any cardigans; only hoodies and zip hoodies. I haven't even worn a bathing suit in four or five years! Should I buy these before I go? If I do, then I'll definitely (maybe) save money. If I don't, then will I stand out as less of a foreigner, sort of...yes, no?
Another part of me just says, just calm down and pack the essentials, like my passport and medication.
