Washing my underwear for France
Well, okay, maybe I should rephrase that. I doubt France has a terribly keen interest in my underwear.
I, however, after a day of fun-filled excitement at the IMO library now am packing for a five-day jaunt to France.
(Don’t knock the IMO, by the way, their headquarters are right by the Thames and they have a cafeteria with a roof garden with a stunning view of Westminster.)
Predictably, like all last-minute packers everywhere, I was short of underwear.
Anyway, that small crisis of hand-washing dealt with, I am travelling light, light, light. Just me, a day-pack and my ambiguously hand-bag-like, yet-still-manly shoulder-bag. No checked luggage for me!
I’m headed to Perpignan to join the Beth travel extravaganza in Padern for a bit. Should be awesome.
See you in a week, if I remember I still sort of have a blog.
PS The photo was from my IMO day trip, taken on the Albert Embankment, where I also saw (but stupidly forgot to take a photo) Met Police officers on mountain bikes practicing cycling down stairs, to the bemusement and delight of passing Japanese tourists.
