With only 8 days to go, I am really starting to get ready. I already have a lot of things packed and am continuing to packed as I buy stuff or get finished using things that I won't need until my trip. Today my mission is to go to Borders book store and find a good travel journal. I am not sure exactly how often I will be able to post on here while I am away, but it probably won't be enough to really describe my trip in accurate detail, so I want to get a nice travel journal to write in about my trip. When I get back I want to write a nice travel blog on here, because I know how much previous contiki traveler's travel blogs have entertained me and helped me to get ready.
As I have probably said in previous posts, I haven't ever really been away from home this long and especially not on my own. The part of my trip that I am most worried about is the actual traveling and the first night there. Luckily, I think that my dad has a flight the same day as mine and will be able to take me to the airport and actually walk with me through security all the way to my gate which is really nice cuz the Atlanta Airport is freakin' HUGE and is the busiest airport in the US!
I found this awesome map of the Tube System in London. I plan on printing this out and taking it with me so I don't get completely lost in London (course the is half the fun, right?) I am also trying to decide if I want to go ahead and book a ticket at one of the shows (I'm thinking Avenue Q) or if I want to wait and see what going on once I get there. I think I have said this on a post before but I STILL haven't book my flight on the London Eye (I need to do that sometime this week.)
Anyway, I am sure I will post a few more times before I leave and I will also try and post my Packing List before I go. BYE!
