HELP! I have started packing but I am sure I have too much. I really need to lighten my load, but am afraid I won't have everything I need for a whole year. Have any of you packed for year in Korea? What did you take? What did you not take that you wish you would have? Would two large suitcases and a laptop backpack be too much? Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

Yes, I totally overpacked. I would be sure to bring hairspray if you use a certain kind (I use pantene pro-v flexible and it is impossible to find here.) They have really good shampoo though, don't need that. Bring deodorant and toothpaste, and spices you hope to use for cooking. They don't have access to non-korean spices really. I brought a pillow from home, they have pillows but it was for sentimental reasons. They also have bedsheets although I'd heard they didn't. Bring clothes and shoes, they have them here but they are super expensive to get in foreigner sizes. Also bring electronics, they are also much cheaper at home. I wish I'd brought an external harddrive.

A years supply of deodorant (Koreans don't sweat...), bras (if you are bigger than a 'B' cup, shoes (if you have large feet) and proper chocolate!
