My carry on allowance is 7 kilo. I'm using a backpack and have just about squeezed 7 kilo of stuff in.
This is it:
From the bottom up:
Canvas tote bag with a big plastic bag of PG Tips in it! Talk about coals to Newcastle - I'm taking tea to China!
Clean shirt - Ben Sherman
Multi coloured fleece - those who know me know which one (Uniqlo)
Rough Guide to China
Recharging cables for kindle, camera and new mobile phone
In the front pocket:
First aid kit
Shoe polish for the Cherry Reds
Neoprene knee brace
And in the top pocket
Toilet paper (moist) Apparently this is crucial when out and about around the Chinese City
6 migraine medicines
Hearing aid batteries
Lemsips x 10
And in my Laptop bag which is also pushing 5 kilo
Spare glasses x 1
Spare sun glasses x 1
4 x teaching books
2 x 100 index cards
Mac book pro and charger
Plymouth photo souvenir book
Ventolin (be prepared - I was a scout after all)
and Brown inhaler
pen pencil etc
So that's it apart from the clothes I'll be wearing and the crombie overcoat Ill have to carry.
I'm looking forward to a quiet three days in Okehampton, no more cleaning/tidying/packing/bill paying/stress etc
But I'm sure something will come up....
