28 Days and Counting : Planning Step 3

Out from a silly fever for a few days...but now I'm back in full swing (I hope).

Today marks 28 days until I'm soaring through the clouds on my way to London. It's been quite a ride to get to this point. I'll be writing a synopsis of my journey for the University of Oregon School of Journalism communications department. I'll share it with you when it gets published in June.

I am now expanding my packing list. It's much more than just clothes. Things like passport, a basic first aid kit, wall adapter (US to UK), cash, hard drive...

Then there are the places to explore. St. Paul's Cathedral, British Museum, Stonehenge, Bath, Shakespeare's Globe...

Excited to hop on the plane and land in a whole different country. May experience a lot of jet lag (eight hours difference). Have any tricks you've tried to overcome time differences? (Comment below with your suggestions.) The most drastic I've experienced was three hours (east to west coast).
