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

"Health related items: vitamins, home remedies like cough drops and cough syrup, special shampoos like selsun blue, tinactin, metamucil -anything from cvs. Electronics: a good laptop, ipad, iphone, portable stereo system, headphones, all of your computer and music cd's. Also transformers of all sizes and strengths for any u.s. electronics. Food items: spices, sauces (I like mexican hot sauce and a-1), fixings for mexican salsa, corn tortillas, giant bag of krusteaz pancake mix, cake mixes, kitchen items like a french press, coffee grinder, garlic press," said a member in Puerto Varas, Chile.

"When moving to Chile, it is important to pack items that will help you adjust to the climate and culture. Pack clothing that is appropriate for the warm climate, such as light, breathable fabrics. Bring a few items of warmer clothing for the cooler months. Make sure to bring comfortable shoes for walking and exploring. Pack items that will help you adjust to the culture, such as books about Chilean history and culture. Bring items that will help you stay connected to your home country, such as photos and mementos. Don't forget to bring any necessary documents, such as your passport and visa," remarked another expat who made the move to Chile.
