    Last Day in the UK: Setting Off

    As I sit here now during the heatwave bracing the UK, I’m enjoying putting my feet up for the final time this summer, at least at home. Last days in the UK The last couple of weeks have been a blur of goodbyes, birthday wishes (25 again) packing, sorting and ensuring I’ve done everything I need to before setting off; this includes making sure what I leave behind is well organised for when I get back. Perhaps I shouldn’t be thinking about coming back but I’m intent on returning to normality as smoothly as possible on my return.

This packing list is based on my own experiences and I can honestly say it worked for me when I was both planning my trip and whilst I was travelling.

    Important, fun for some but not for others, is planning what to take when you travel. In our gadget loving year of 2015, my toughest decision has been what laptop to go travelling with, or indeed, if I should just take a tablet instead. This afternoon I bought a new ‘travel laptop’, one which is durable, lightweight and budget-friendly.

    European Interrail: Why Take the Train?

    For my trip I spent a short amount of time considering my options before deciding to travel by train through Europe. At one point, I was looking at the possibility of Trek America but have shelved this for another time. Now that I’ve got everything booked and can relax a little, I’ve unpacked my decision to choose interrail. A famous film quote comes to mind from Hitchcock’s North By Northwest, as Roger says to Eve on an overnight train ride, “Sure beats flying, doesn’t it?”
