DIS Spring Semester Packing List

This is a post I have been planning to write all semester: a list for future DIS students of what to bring to Copenhagen.  Disclaimer- this post will be mostly applicable to females studying at DIS or in Copenhagen for the Spring Semester.

Without a Doubt the Best Spring Break I’ll Ever Have
