It’s technically still autumn here but it feels like winter and hit zero degrees already. The weather is very bad (compare to my previous summer paradise of course) and changing all the time. Talking (and swearing) about weather is very common in our daily conversations, including this one particular cold day in our dorm kitchen.
(It was starting to rain)
J: “It was sunny five minutes ago! What the hell?!”
M: “It is crazy!”
O: “It is Norway.” (insert neutral face emoji)
Yup, welcome to Norway! So inspired by that, I’ll put some ideas about what to do on a cold day a.k.a crappy weather. These things are basically what I do on daily basis nowadays.
When it comes to packing, I assure you the best way to pack your belonging on holiday is to PACK LIGHT. Trust me, I’ve been through a month with my 20-something kg suitcase, around 10 kg backpack, and another 3-5 kg of handbag, and one thing I can tell you that they’re pain in the ass. Imagine! Three bags with more than 30 kilos in total, combined with a very busy schedule jumping from one city to another! I don’t know what was I thinking. This is definitely the biggest mistake I did while planning for my trip.
If you have just one day in London, or if you visit London for the first time and want to see the highlight about what London is all about, my suggestion is to walking down the River Thames. It is the largest river in England and flows through London with bunch of London’s iconic landmarks along the river. So you’ll see quite a lot and apparently it’s super cheap! I did that on my first day in London, more than a year ago and never regret it.
