I took a very quick trip to Glasgow recently to visit my new baby nephew (and some adults). I arrived lunchtime on Friday and left about 4pm on Saturday, and was traveling by train. I didn’t need to take too much with me, although I did have a few presents that I needed to cram into my backpack.
It was very hot when I went up there, but this heat wave has been so unprecedented it was hard to believe that it would stay warm, in Scotland of all places. I went up there in my jeans and long sleeve dino top, the air conditioning on the train made that an OK travel outfit. But on arrival we sat in the garden and it was very necessary to shorts up. I threw in some new shorts (not pictured), as well as shorts to sleep in (which it was far too hot to wear)! I also took some fluffy slipper socks which my niece quite enjoyed stroking and grabbing hold of.
My non-clothes items were fairly minimal; some toiletries, sunglasses, sun block, a book to read on the train, a day bag (which sister had bought me and my niece pointed to and said ‘we bought that’), my purse, and then I also took my phone and camera. It was fairly successful packing I’d say!
