35 days to go

...and dilemma resolved

semi-overcast 18 °C

We caved in bought the two Nintendo DSs plus a whole whack of games, but have decided against the new netbook. Most of the other gear we need has also been gathered and is patiently resting in a couple of boxes piled on top of each other in a bedroom. Mark finally chose a backpack the other day, a big, roomy 90-litre Osprey that zips all the way around to make it easy for the entire family to pile their belongings into pell-mell. For a while, he was threatening to buy a 136-litre duffel bag instead—so while I plan to stay far, far away from the pell-mell situation myself, I’m glad he backed off on the duffel bag and chose something that he can haul around in tropical heat without quite so much sweating, swearing and furrowing of brow.

Of course, I could be entirely wrong, and may spend the entire trip wishing I’d chosen something like Mark’s bag instead of the top-loading traditional backpack that I opted for. But what are the chances of me admitting that?

Man - 90 litres - what is he taking? Guitar? Boat? Zip round is a great design though...
Hope the DS' are as useful to yours as they were to ours!
All love R xx
