What should I pack when moving to Altea?

Answer this Question

We asked people living in Altea to list three things they wish they had brought and three they wish they had left behind. They responded...

"When moving to Altea, it is important to pack items that will help you adjust to the climate and culture. Bring comfortable, lightweight clothing that is suitable for the warm Mediterranean climate. Sunscreen, sunglasses, and a hat are also essential for protecting yourself from the sun. Additionally, it is a good idea to bring a few items that will help you feel at home, such as pictures of family and friends, favorite books, and any other items that will make you feel comfortable in your new home. Finally, don't forget to bring any necessary documents, such as your passport and visa," commented one expat who made the move to Altea, Spain.

"After almost three months, I am still waiting for my third and final box to clear the Spanish postal service and customs. It has been so long, I can't even remember what items are in it. Besides those three boxes, I only brought two suitcases, so I brought very little. I was surprised I could not find US size wash cloths in Spain. And I would have brought quality zip-lock plastic bags. They are practically useless here," remarked another expat in Altea, Spain.
