fighting the lack of good ideas

notes to self on flying internationally

I’m in London for a couple weeks for work.

Going through customs is an interesting process – especially when you can’t prove you actually should be allowed in the country.

This that somebody should have told me before I left:

  1. bring a print-out of your itinerary
  2. know the address(es) of where you’re staying
  3. have cash already (not merely a debit card)
  4. have a map and/or directions handy for how to get both
    • to your hotel
    • to the job site
  5. better plans

Thankfully the customs lady let me in, after I kept confirming the same [true] story about what I’m here for 🙂
