Just what it says on in the title.

Feel free to suggest items you think our Travelin' Ladies will need on their adventures in the UK bam da dom* this summer, be sure to explain why you think the item is essential. Add a link if possible, but remember no hot linking, as it makes people's bandwidth unhappy.

Oh, Jaq shall be traveling Europe, and Cand the UK. I am off to look for stuff, and shall post later. In the mean tme, go, go, go!

Jerky. Lots and lots of jerky. A wide selection of flavours.

It's essential because it's the best thing ever, and you can instantly befriend english people with dried meat products. It's practically scientific fact.

They won't need anyone's address, because we all know each-other and Britain is so tiny that if by some strange chance you might be conversing with an amnesiac who doesn't know everyone then all you'll need to do is shout and the person you're looking for will hear you.

You may want to bear in mind that Britain is not a third-world country, and has actual shops where you can buy outlandish luxuries like soap. wink.gif

But clearly not developed enough to have jerky widely available.

Chocolate popcorn and Krispy Kreme donuts. ^.^ And anything grape flavoured that you could think of - they don't do grape, they've black currant instead. (Tastes like severely watered down grape to me). Cameras. Non-Macintosh stuff. Erm, money? As exchange rates are terrible right now. That's all I can think of. Have fun!

No. It's a breakfast cereal. I swear, the cereal aisle in an American supermarket is the best place to go if you want to feel like you're in a foreign country while in the US. Culture shock ahoy!

Yes, but it will cost us (well, me, at least, I don't know about Jaq) almost twice as more there what with the exchange rate and all, so remembering as many necessities as possible is useful. Though, I already have a list of those things and I don't _think_ I'm missing anything on there.

And I have neither chocolate popcorn (chocolate popcorn?!) nor Krispy Kreme doughnuts where I live. I've never had a Krispy Kreme. Jaq is even less likely to have these things available to her at the moment.

I don't like Apple Jacks or Captain Crunch. unsure.gif I am actually apparently bringing some Mt. Dew in my carry on, though, for Pat (though I don't like Mt. Dew either....I'm not picky, really!). I don't know if I will bring jerky (hey, I liked _that_...when I ate meat, which I don't anymore..). Maybe a little since Sean will be meeting me at the airport and he seems so in love with the stuff.

I'm not actually sure if you're allowed to transport food-stuffs into other countries. I know you're not supposed to do in into the US.

Not that I know of Pab, we do have Krispy Kreme douhgnuts and chocolate popcorn though.

Mata, I also hear alcohol is a no-no.

Hmm...Pat said that he took a 2 liter bottle in his carry-on when going back to the UK from the US. I think it depends on what it is...hmm. They might not be so wild about me taking jerky with me, since it's a meat product and all...

Are you mad? Just this evening I purchased a pack of jerky from the shopping emporium not 200 yards from my house. Were I to head to town I would be able to extract both jerky and biltong from a high street butcher with my choice of seasoning. You're just in the backward wastes of Leicester. tongue.gif

Bah, You've clearly not had good blackcurrant. Those who visit/have access to the right kind of shops should hunt down and try Ribena. It will surely make a mockery of that which you call 'grape'.

It was indeed on sale here back in the day. Not many people bought it, so they cut their losses and gave up. Much the same as with Tab at around the same time.

I liked Moutain Dew, but it would seem that I was one of the few.

When I've travelled on planes to the US they've let you take things onto the flight but requested you either eat them in-transit or throw them away when you get there in a bag at the door of the plane.

I actually do have a Krispy Kreme donut place nearish to my house, but I think after backpacking for 3 weeks that they're going to be less than fresh. Or eaten. Whichever.


Anyone want any squid peanuts, pine bud drink, mystery crab sausage, red bean cake or anything else Korean that you've been craving? tongue.gif I'm already bringing Moop some pine bud drink.

Mystery Crab Sausage? That sounds tempting... What is it?

As much as I like the sound of it, I figure it would be a little unfair to get to to carry a lump of sausage around with you on your travels!

Well it's... ehm.. *squint* Not exactly sausage.. but it's in a sausage sort of shape and it has meat flavouring to it... It doesn't go bad if it sits out.. Korean kids love it..


Tell you what. I'll bring some, but if I do, you have to eat it.
