    After a bit of a plumbing problem from the room above, we were moved to a huge room with a great view, staff here fab. Food good too.

    ... my tie-dye fisherman pants? Where would I fit the ubiquitous croaking wooden frog and let's not even get started on those Vietnamese hats!

    Despite my friends' best intentions, my mind was made up and I was going to stick with my original plan of taking the rucksack that I take to work every day on a 5 month overland adventure across a dozen or so different countries and climates.
