What should I pack when moving to Salwa?
We asked people living in Salwa to list three things they wish they had brought and three they wish they had left behind. They responded...
"When moving to Salwa, you should pack lightweight and breathable clothing, as the climate is hot and arid. Make sure to include modest attire, such as long-sleeved shirts and pants, to respect the local culture. Bring a good supply of sunscreen, sunglasses, and a wide-brimmed hat to protect yourself from the sun. Pack essential toiletries, including toothpaste, toothbrush, shampoo, conditioner, soap, and any necessary medications. It's also a good idea to bring a basic first aid kit with band-aids, pain relievers, and any other medical supplies you may need. Don't forget to pack important documents, such as your passport, visa, driver's license, and any other identification you may need. Make copies of these documents and store them separately from the originals. Bring any necessary electronics, such as your phone, laptop, and chargers. You may also want to pack a power adapter, as Kuwait uses a different type of electrical outlet than many other countries. Pack some personal items to make your new home feel more comfortable, such as family photos, favorite books, or small decorations. Lastly, consider bringing a few non-perishable snacks and bottled water for your journey, as well as any other items you may need during your travels, such as a travel pillow or earplugs," said another expat in Salwa, Kuwait.
