5 days and counting...traveling tips anyone?

Today is the five-day mark.  I will be leaving my home country for the first time in my life in less than a week, or 4 days and some odd hours according to my "countdown clock."  As I've never left the country before, I am very unsure of what to pack, bring, and plan for this long journey to Austria.  I will be there for nearly four months until I return to hometown for Christmas break.  I am open to any comments or tips from anyone that has left the country, or even traveled to Europe.  I found out that the condo I will be staying in during my time in Austria is fully furnished.  A fellow Austrian teammate has told me to just bring warm clothes and my hockey gear.  If you think there are any other items I should bring, feel free to contact me.  As I said before, I have never left the country, so my ears are open to whatever you might suggest on bringing.  I have already shopped for some nice ski clothes (jacket, hat, gloves, etc.), but I hear the winters are super cold too.  Maybe I should just skip on the idea of bringing shorts and flip flops.  What do you think? 

If you have not checked out the Neuberg Highlanders website, my two fellow American teammates were announced.  Jessica Jenkins, 20, and Courtney Bradley, 19, are both from Canada.  We are expected to arrive around the same time at the airport in Vienna, Austria.  I look forward to meeting them and sharing a condo with them.  I also can't wait to meet the rest of the team and get a chance to bond with them before our first game on Sept. 16! :o)
