What should I pack when moving to Haarlem?

Answer this Question

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

"When moving to Haarlem, you should pack a variety of clothing suitable for different weather conditions, including warm clothing for the cold winter months and lighter clothing for the summer. Waterproof jackets and shoes are essential due to the frequent rain. Don't forget to pack your important documents such as passport, visa, driver's license, medical records, and insurance papers. If you're planning to work or study, bring any necessary work-related materials or academic documents. Pack your electronics, including your laptop, phone, chargers, and a power adapter suitable for European outlets. Bring any prescription medications you need, along with a copy of the prescription and a letter from your doctor explaining your need for the medication. Pack personal hygiene items and toiletries, although keep in mind that most of these can also be purchased in Haarlem. If you have room, consider packing some comfort items from home, like photos or favorite snacks. Remember to pack enough money for your initial period of stay, until you can set up a bank account or figure out a long-term plan for accessing money. Lastly, if you're planning to cycle, which is a common mode of transport in the Netherlands, you might want to bring your own helmet as they are not commonly worn by Dutch cyclists," remarked another expat in Haarlem, The Netherlands.
