Strange days…

Choose life…

Choose destinations that don’t hold you or others as you enter the country…

Choose a place that you can get to and still spend less than you would over the same timescale when holidaying in your own country…

Choose trains or buses or other public transport rather than hiring a car that needs to be parked up for half a day or more whilst you wander around an already gridlocked city…

Choose food and drink that isn’t what you’d have at home…

Choose a film or TV series with subtitles rather than one that’s just in English or has been dubbed into English…

Choose a bag you can carry rather than one you need to wheel…

Choose clothing that you can wash & wear…

Choose lo-tech or no tech to keep the bag weight down…

Choose no star places to costs down by eating in family run cafes…

Choose wisely, go placidly and remember – it’s o.k. to wear sunscreen…

Inspired by Trainspotting, Desidirata and Baz Lurhman…
