Charing round the house trying to find those continental socket adapters, I must have a hundred of them but can I ever find them? I find them in the spring when I come back with six new ones!!
The wardrobe choice is just as much fun……packing for a four month trip you have to make some big decisions…..should I take the Beach Boy shirt for the inevitable beach party or the head dress so I can a pass as a good arab?
This is very mood dependant and I have found myself having to put up with a crazy selection of clothing which seemed to be chosen purely on the basis of what parties maybe on rather than day to day wear.
The opposite is true! That if on the 28th of November you are in a somewhat sober mood you are stuck with a rather drab autumnal wardrobe until the end of April
