So, you are in England in October? You did think of packing waterproof clothing only, did you? Otherwise, start repacking...  ;D

How long you over for? Give a shout if you're headed up to Scotland! 99 days is early November, depending on the year that could mean anything from sunny 15C, rainy 5C or snowy -5C!

Yup.. Nov 6th I'll be in London for 2 weeks. I know its not enough but its all the time i can get off work for this year.

First night i be staying at some hotel , then grab that campervan and do MAD MAX style across the country! Starting with Canterbury, down the white cliffs of Dover, across to Stonehenge, up to Oxford, then coasting along to Edinburgh! (speeling?)

So yeah Kieron, I most likely be in Scotland for a few days. So be awesome if we catch up and talk about simutrans LOL...

I got heavey warm clothing packed.. jsut gotta head down to the Moutain Gear shop to buy decent thermals..

As you know..as an aussie, I never experience that biting "chill" of yers.. i bet i suffer hyperthermia, even if im still wearing twenty peices of clothing on!! lmao

hm, weather in London is even worse than in Paris - and God knows how grey is Parisian weather, especially in Automn. Probably you won't have time to take the Eurostar to my hometown. Still, have fun!

congrats to carl, also  ;)

Bon voyage! (And definitely pack an umbrella!)

Also, why not visit here or somewhere like it?

Well, it does involve the railway coming back from the dead after being attacked by an axe-wielding doctor called Beeching, if that's what you mean...
