Do you find yourself thinking for days on end about things you will need on the trip and telling yourself “I must remember to pack that”? Have you arrived and discovered “oops I should have packed that”? There is a simple solution and it works, especially if it’s keeping you up at night before the trip – write it down. Yes, make a list, add to it whenever you have an idea that I must pack this, and take it with you. When you get there and think I should have, add it to that list and keep it in one of those pockets in your favourite bag or case so next time, you won’t forget. When you are doing that last-minute dash instead of running around in circles you can check your list and feel far more at ease and only have to deal with the excitement or nerves of the trip itself.

“The hostility, the injustice I’m living through, it is to do with the South African government. It is an attack on our people. They don’t want us to feel comfortable in our own country. They want us all to leave,”du Toit explains in his still somewhat rough but comprehensible Russian.
