I’ll start with packing. Last time, I was leaving for an unlimited number of months, planning to spend some days in the mountains, Ancient Towns and who-knows-where. I packed light’ish . Then I realised that a pair of old trainers would do as good as waterproof trekking boots, and moreover, a happy local family will gladly adore them.
This decision to come… surprisingly, I booked my flight exactly 1 year after my return! I only figured that out yesterday when I found an Airport ticket dated 18-01-18.
Few days before the trip, a free diver has died and it reminded me of Guilliam Nearys (see ‘rebirth’ on youtube). I’ve asked my friend to help me find that movie. The next day, I found a Koh Tao Pub Crawl event ticket in my old bag!!! So, enough to book a ticket.
This time, however, I’ll be working while travelling. This means, no more crazy bungalows with no electrition and where rats eat my banana and soap. I need wi-fi. AirCon. Sea. Coral reefs. Diving. And, i also need a personal laptop. But so many things i don’t need!
I arrived from London in a light feather jacket (Squeezed in a vacuum pack) and yellow sneakers. Two larger packs contain clothing – skirts, shorts… I already think it’s too much.
I also brought a Sarong and a shoulder bag. A Swiss knife, a LED light. I bought most of my creams seen here locally.
Few big things were the snorkelling tube+mask. I just like when it’s mine! A sleeping pillow, sleeping mask, some cosmetics…
A special case (Thank you, United Airlines Business!) where i neatly keep all my wires etc.
I place both my work and leisure laptop in a waterproof bag, just instead.
