I’ve never been someone to celebrate All Hallows’ Eve (apart from carving myself a pumpkin, which always gets very competitive), however for me it signals the start of winter and the lead up to Christmas! I love this time of year and how festive everyone gets; you can almost feel the UK’s spirit lifting as we creep towards December.
This is the good part of winter, the exciting, festive, let’s pray for snow winter. Let’s face it, anything after New Years Eve is dreary and depressing in the UK – cue the 7 months of travelling!
This is the time of year that everyone starts asking what I would like for my December birthday and Christmas. And every single year I have no idea, especially this year as winter boots and coats are out of the question. I’ve been thinking about things that I could take travelling with me without them costing the earth, that will be useful, and that aren’t going to me me look like a thief’s dream.
If anyone has any gadgets or items that they cannot live without when backpacking I would love to know!
