The first part of any great trip is the preparation. For this trip, that meant sending my passport out to get a visa twice, booking seven flights, five hotel rooms, five Scrabble tournaments, and a tour. It also meant figuring out how to pack for weather that was going to be mostly warm and tropical, but with a week in Coventry in early January at the end, for a tournament nicknamed "the Snowman."

I ended up choosing to take mostly shorts, with only two pairs of long pants, one pair of jeans, a polar fleece, and a light windbreaker. For entertainment, I've brought my Kindle and mp3 player, and three new Games Magazines to keep me busy through 60 hours of flights.
