Woman with 37 tops packed for overnight trip adds a 38th

A WOMAN who has packed 37 different choices of top for an overnight stay in a hotel has added one more, just in case. 

Nikki Hollis of Coventry is spending the night in London with her boyfriend but has packed as if concerned her train will wind up on an uninhabited island, leaving her stranded with only a fresh yet impractical wardrobe.

She said: “Well I don’t know what we’re going to be doing – out, out for a meal, out somewhere fancy, out somewhere cool – so I’ve had to pack accordingly.

“What would I do if I didn’t have the right top? Just buy one, I suppose, from one of the hundreds of shops down there? Yeah I’ve not ruled that out.

“When I’m at home I average one top every two days, but many are the dangers facing the unwary traveller. Mostly top-based, I’d imagine.”

Hollis will end up spending the whole evening in the bar of her hotel because she has only brought one pair of shoes and cannot walk in them.
