THE COACH TRIP CHECKLIST

So, I have been on a few coach trips recently. Mainly because they are far more economical than other transport methods and I am a strange lady who enjoys the slow paced lifestyle so I like that it means I can sit and read a book and just look at out the window while I get taken to my desired destination. My friend and I also had an epiphany the other day when we found coach tickets for just £18.00 to Paris and bought them. If you take a late coach, arrive in the morning and take the late coach back the next day. We have done it as a coach trip, but you could do it for your first and last days and stay somewhere in between if you wanted to spend more time there. You can save money on hotels/hostels and get some shut eye when you would be sleeping. So, here is our checklist for London-Paris and back (we are considering doing the same thing from London to Amsterdam also). I pack food because a) I don't wish to be tired and hungry and b) I am vegan and I don't always fancy just fries everywhere I go. Another tip also is to basically get ready for bed before you leave, so I had a shower, cleansed, toned, moisturised, and got in comfy clothes then made my way to the coach station that way so I could feel extra fresh for as long as possible. Also, it really doesn't matter how you look on a coach at night.
