    Starting to pack for my trip, moving over in Jan to work, then Contiking in May/June. Does anyone have any packing advice as I am trying to bring over clothes for year round, but not used to the cold London winters.

    Hey.. I just arrived in london from aussie about 3 weeks ago and i tried to do the same as you and pack for a few seasons but after a few days i realised i didnt have enough winter clothes!! Unless u wanna wear the same things every day i would just concentrate on winter and buy your summer clothes here, its really chea also :) Do u have a job lined up?
