Pack your essentials:

To move alone to a new city, you need to take all your daily essentials with you. This time you should pack these things as followed:

  • Electric kettle: It will be your best friend when you are moving to the new city alone. Within an electric kettle, you can make ready-to-eat noodles, and boiled eggs along with tea, coffee, etc. Just after relocating you may need some time to find out food delivery services to get your breakfast, lunch, supper, and dinner. In this period, an electric kettle will help you a lot. 
  • Table lamp:  You can enjoy the bliss of solitude only when you will dive into good books. You need to work at night also. Burning midnight oil is the stair to getting a job promotion or achieving academic success where the table lamp will be the best mate in your midnight. 
  • Cell phone with charger:  After moving to the new city, cell phones will serve the role of entertainer. So don’t forget to take your cell phone with you. 
  • Laptop with charger: It’s a mandate. During the rush of packing and moving, you may forget to take the charger of your laptop. So, pack it within a zip lock bag early. 
  • Portable music system:  Bluetooth speakers, headphones, and earbuds are important to spend your lonely moment.
  • Tea or coffee sachets with sugar and milk:  You should take those to make a sip after reaching your new destination.
  • Spoons:  To take packaged foods, and stir the beverages you should take some disposable spoons with you.
  • Ropes for drying clothes with clips:  After completion of the moving, you should be fresh with a splash of refreshing body wash. This time you should wash your clothes with washing powder or detergent. Ropes will be helpful for instant drying in sunlight or under the fan. 

Keep your documents collected:

If you are moving to a new city lonely, you should keep in mind that, you will not get an instant helping hand there. So, don’t forget to carry all of your required documents with you in soft copy version as well as in the hard copy format. It should include the following:

  • Your migration letter
  • Job offer letter/ Academic admission letter
  • Your ID proofs
  • New rental place documents
  • Packers and movers services agreement paper
  • Local guardian or office executives’ contact details
  • Bank papers for emergency 
  • ATM or financial card and sufficient cash because the availability of ATMs is variable in different cities
  • Regular medicines like sudden headache, fever, nausea, allergy, etc. 

What to do now?

After moving you should be cautious and enthusiastic about some matters which are discussed below:

Developing peer-ship:

  • After getting to the new area, you need to make friends with whom you can spend your leisure time. 
  • Always be helpful with your roommate if you are sharing a place.

Roaming to explore:
