The above is one of my dad’s favourite sayings and it definitely applies to today! After a few last minute packing hiccups we’re just about ready to go.
Bernd: We can’t go. My backpack is too small.
Me: I thought you did a test pack?
Bernd: Yes but I’ve bought several things since then.
Ahhh, the false impression of the practice pack!
After some fraught moments in which we thought we’d have to leave some essential items like the electric toothbrush at home, a new configuration of the packing cubes saved the day and nothing was jettisoned.
Tonight we fly to Beijing and then it’s on to North Korea with our tour group. No posts during that time obvs but we should be back online on the 30th or soon afterwards.
