Subject: tip (Was Chartres &..)
Hi Dot, The binoculars: A very good Zine tip! But tell me: How do you then get around the classic before setting out from the hotel in the morning bit of Do we need the umbrella/map/guide books/sunscreen/camera/binoculars.....etc today? Response: No, not today. We're only going to the gallery, then to lunch, then we can come back and pick up.... Given that my travelling companion never carries anything, the crunch decisions are doubly difficult. I usually choose to be prepared for all eventualities - especially in the early days of a trip, then gradually reduce the daily load as the shoulders give way. What's your tip for having exactly the right thing with you, rather than back in the hotel room? Cheers, Joan Melbourne, Australia
