SARAH: Thought it about time that I “wrote” a post, as packing (so I am told) is my domain!!
I now realise how good that salesman in Cotswold Outdoors was. How on earth will we get all of this into two 15kg back packs? The biggest challenge though, as you ladies will understand, is the prospect of not having things like a hair dryer, make up and all the little extras that you normally take on a two week holiday. It’s now hitting home that priorities have shifted from perfume and outfit accessories to mosquito nets, first aid kits and deet!
Thank you to everyone who has provided a range of packing “top tips”. You can probably see from the photos below that our kit now includes, door stops, duck tape and ear plugs. However, I am still having a debate with Mark about him taking tennis balls so he can play cricket with the locals in India.
The next time you see all this gear, it will I hope, be safely packed away ready for Joe to take us to T3 at LHR. Now, back to the challenge.
