Packing your suitcase

What you should take for sure: thermal underwear, warm winter boots water and frost resistant, winter coat (puffer, membrana, hollofiber or any other similar feeling) should be water, wind and frost resistant at the same time, warm hat, scarf and gloves. Here are some samples of adequate winter clothes
SHOES to wear indoors. Wearing clean shoes at home or indoors is the overall rule in Russia. You should bring some cute shoes to wear at home and during the lessons
SHAMPOO and so on. There is no problem with buying any kind of shampoo, conditioner, shower gel, deodorants ans so on in Russia. Moreover its a but chipper in Moscow. Thus there is no need to carry tons of heavy bottles with you. Just take average jars for the first period. But if you are fan of dry shampoo it is something you would like to bring. You will hardly find something like this in average shop.
FOOD. You can buy any kind of candy in average Moscow store except probably red vines, butterscotch and Hershey's. What you might really like to bring is baking mixes. Those will help you to make surprises for your family or prepare amazing cooking or party lesson to your students. You will definitely become kids' favorite teacher with those :)))
Presents for your family in case you want of course.
