    Foggy London

    Luggage and bags: I've been to London in winter and summer. You can find lots of showers during both. And there's the foggy side of London.... specially during winter. Be prepared for fast changes.

    Rain in 5, 4, 3...

    Camping/Beach/Outdoor Gear: An umbrella is your best friend in London. Even if it's 60 and sunny when you wake up, you'll inevitably get rained on at some point in the day.

    Lock it up

    Luggage and bags: Lock it up with a pad lock folks. No joke.

    Clothing/Shoes/Weather Gear: Take you crapy clothes with you. Then replace them with new cool ones you buy alone the way. Donate you old ones to a hostel.

    Luggage and bags: Never believe English weather, whatever you do never go out without your umbrella. Don’t believe weatherman. It could be sun shining in one minute and next minute it could be pouring down.
