9 days left to departure

I have never traveled anywhere east of Poland, so preparing for this trip is a bit nerve racking for me - especially that I still don't know where and with whom I will be spending these 5 weeks (we're supposed to be living with host families). So, I am on the quest for some generic gifts. Any ideas?

  2. The only time I've stayed somewhere with a host family, it was only for a night, and they gave me lotion. (One of my favorite lotions. I actually finished that bottle... and you've seen how many OTHER lotions I have left.)

  4. I ended up bringing them some rocks and dinosaur bones from Moab (and a U of U tin can with candy). But vodka has been on the table almost every evening.
