How quick?

How long does it take to pack for a three day break?

!0 minutes if the place you’re staying in is a hostel, guest house or hotel.

And I wasn’t even rushing things whilst I was doing the packing.

The size of the bag?

A fifteen litre Healthy Back Bag.

The items inside?

Kindle, digital compact camera, wash kit, meds, two shirts, two sets of socks & underwear, one smaller than usual travel towel, a compact umbrella, a paper notebook, couple of pens and a couple of cans of Coke Zero (other drinks are available!) plus tickets and booking details.

The cans help with the expense on the journey out and back – 27p per can as they’re part of a multipack deal the local Co-Op have on at the moment. Same store usually sells single cans of the same brew from their fridges at 69p each…

Worn items include Rohan t-shirt, trousers and silver content socks & underwear (from M&S and Rohan respectively.

On the feet are a pair of Salomon ventilated trainers and that’s it.

No jacket or jumper given the weather conditions likely to be encountered, but the umbrella is in there should rain head my way.

The destination?

All will be revealed on Friday of this week!
