    Maybe we’ll have a group of people to sight see with :)

    Vanessa – what is your flight number?

    Yah, I’d love that! Thanks :) I only heard about it through my friend because she said that was how she met people in her tour so I decided to try it but it obviously wasn’t as successful for me! I have been only counting down the months so far not the days, I’ll probably do that when it gets to the last month. So do I! I write my last exam 5 days before I leave hah I wanted to try and leave as soon as I possibly could!

    My last exam is on the 20th so it’s a week for me. It’s coming faster than expected :D

    What are you guys bringing for this trip?

    Yah! I feel like most people would be going early to sight see a bit! I am at school right now, but when I get home I will check and then let you know! Do you want to give me you e-mail so I can just send it to you through there? Like clothes wise? Or money wise?

    Both – clothes and money

    Just found the flight information! It’s with British Airways Flight BA92 and it leaves at 6:40pm on April 26th and then arrives in England on April 27th at 6:55am.

    Clothes wise I am going to bring some shorts and jeans, a pair of like comfy/yoga pants, and mostly tank tops and one or two sweaters. Probably not a coat, I’ll just use one of my sweaters as a coat. And then a skirt and a couple nice shirts for going out! Money wise I will be bringing however much I can make up until that point. I am working 2 part time jobs right now so we will see how much I can make!

    I am officially a tiny bit excited now. Who will be at Heathrow at 7:30am-ish on April 27? I’ll be there, zombified. If anyone wants to meet up for a stroll around London on April 28, give me a hoy.

    I haven’t decided yet myself – I don’t really know what to bring either. I will be staying there yes – I think it’s included in the trip price.

    Hey Matt!
    I am going to be bringing a suitcase because it is either on the bus or in the hotel room! So I don’t have to worry about trying to carry it around all day or else I would be bringing a backpack. I will be bringing a normal backpack though for when we do walking tours and such to carry my camera and money and water!

    I’m thinking I might take my playbook just because it’s smaller but not a laptop

    yah… I am crazy about taking pictures.. I went to NYC for 3 days and took 700.. So I’m thinking I will be taking ALOT in 20 days!! I thought about taking it to transfer pics over to.. Might just buy extra memory cards.

  • 6 Feb 2012 Katie said

    I’m thinking memory cards may be a great investment for you…
    I have to take more pictures on this trip seeing as I never took many before. There’s so much to see and learn in such a short time.

    I’m not bringing a laptop either, but am also crazy about taking pictures. My birthday is in about a week so I asked for memory cards so that I can just keep switching them out once they get full!

    Is anyone bringing an EU/UK power adapter? Cash passport or regular home-bank card? Does a less dorky alternative to a money belt exist?
