I'm now 17 days out from my trip and all booked everywhere so now I can just concentrate on getting excited.
I'm having a small problem however. In Australia at the moment, we are nowhere close to getting warm clothes in our stores. My partner arrived in Winchester the other day and said that a lot of the warmer clothes are selling out in the stores really quickly and he doubts that there will be anything left by the time I arrive.
I've bought things to layer but I cannot get a hold of any type of boot yet that isn't $100 and something I would wear when I come home. I think I've missed the deadline for online purchases from overseas so that is also out. I do have some suede boots from last year, but they are slightly too small to fit a good thick pair of socks in with them- being from Perth I can get away with thin ankle socks during winter. I also have scarves and some crochet beanie-hat things.
I know you can't predict the weather, but if you could hazard a guess (and no blaming or pointing fingers if you're wrong) would you say that a couple of layers and a jacket (singlet, tee, sweater and jacket) would be sufficient? My partner said it was so cold his face felt like it was on fire. We will be going to Winchester, Bridlington, London and then Paris.
Thanks so much in advance :)
