Packing tips

Hello,
I am moving to Bern this September to pursue my masters degree. Since I am from Bangladesh and I have not been outside of my country in the last 20 years, I really do not have any idea about the things I may need over there for daily use and also to combat the weather. If anybody could help me with a list of things that I must take from here or immediately buy once I reach there, it will be immensely helpful. Thank you

Re: Packing tips

If you are here for the winter, then you might want to pack a few sweaters, warm socks and a good jacket, something multi-purpose which can manage cold, rain and wind. Although everything is available here, good winter jackets are expensive here. Plus the usual, scarf, mittens, hat...Otherwise there isn't much you need to bring, just comforts of home - I usually bring loose leaf tea as I don't like Liptons and prefer Brooke Bond! It is available in Bern at the Agarwals - the Indian store - but again, it's the price issue.
Anyway, welcome to Bern!
