Hi everyone, hope you’re all okay!
So, it turns out that travel bag shopping wasn’t nearly as hilarious as we thought it would be. It just emphasised my weakness when I failed to tighten the straps which if anything, was slightly embarrassing. But still, the two assistants in the shop (Trespass in Bristol – highly recommended!) were both really funny and helpful which made us feel less like travel novices, regardless of how much stuff Sophia knocked on the floor…
Apart from buying a bag and a really cool towel that dries almost instantly (I might have got slightly over excited about that in the shop…) I didn’t get much, only some hand sanitizer (yes, I’m that girl) and the necessary travel pills. We also ate delicious Chinese noodles and drank bubble tea and had a lovely day in the sunshine, oh and we fawned over £500 Louboutins in Harvey Nichols; something we obviously won’t need but still, I can dream.
One thing I do need your help with! Anyone who’s been away for more than two weeks – what did you do about phones with regards to internet/texting/etc? Did you get a different sim card? The woman in Vodaphone was completely unhelpful but did suggest getting a Lyca or Lebara sim card… Any help or advice about this would be much appreciated, thank you!
