Checklist of things to Purchase from PAKISTAN

Important Points:
Go to the market with planning and keep this list with you while shopping. Check the allowed weight of luggage from your airline before having things (20 or 25 or 33Kg & 7Kg Handbag). Try to have just 2 bags, 1 big (30Kg Max.capacity) and 1 shoulder/college bag .Be careful about your luggage, documents and money while traveling you can have theft chance at airports or Stations.
Try to come in Austria from Monday to Thursday as mostly people go on leave from Friday noon to Sunday night and nobody from university or hostel will help you on weekends. It is also better if you can reach here in day time (optional but not a big problem). Before coming here, you must have telephone numbers of concerned persons in your pocket and the person who have your room keys. You must tell him regarding your flight so that on arrival, you can get keys from him.

This is general list of things, but you can bring things according to your need and usage. In Austria everything is available but more expensive than in Pakistan.
