Packing is hard, yo

So I leave for London on Monday night. And let me tell you right now, I am WOEFULLY underprepared for this trip. Have I started thinking about what I want to do/see in London? Nope. Have I thought about what clothes and shoes I'm going to take that will adequately cover me for all possible weather conditions? Not even. Have I gone to the supermarket and stocked up on miniature toiletries? LOLNOPE.

My suitcase is out of the cupboard though, so I guess that's a start?

I'm slightly nervous about getting from Heathrow to my brother C's office in the middle of London, especially when jetlagged and dragging a suitcase behind me. It will involve changing trains and remembering to stand on the right so that I don't get murdered (or at least sighed at excessively) and generally going up and down escalators with a suitcase.

C's given me detailed instructions on how to get to his office which will hopefully prove to be idiot-proof. He even included a street view picture of his office so that I know what it looks like. And if I prove too jetlagged to follow simple instructions, he's informed me that I should ask the staff at the tube station where McDonald's is, and use the free wifi to let him know that I'm an idiot and to come rescue me.

All I know at this point? Is that I'll be taking a lot less luggage than the last time I went to England. Admittedly, I was going to England for several months to study. But I'm still not sure it warranted 40kg worth of luggage...

As for the rest, I foresee this gif coming in handy next Tuesday:

*Obviously, I have already packed the Tim Tams and Kraft mac and cheese that C's requested.


  1. Getting to Central London shouldn't be too difficult though I landed in Stansted the last time and took a bus. I'm sure you will be fine! As for packing, I like to do things last minute. I love pakcing though so that's hepful. Bring jumpers and cardigans I'd say because if the weather here is any indication, you will need them.
    Obviously I recomment getting your picture taken at Platform 9 3/4 if you have the time and patience to stand in line.

  2. Bring a good coat and waterproof shoes! And I recommend you visit the new Foyles bookstore on Charing Cross Road.

  3. Based on your comment on Jeff's drinking story and this, I feel like we have similar sibling relationships with our younger brothers.

  4. I am jealous you are going to London. I haven't been since 2007 and so badly want to go back.


Leave me a comment and I'll love you forever (except for spambots...)
