Words of wisdom.

Jazzbrit. If you take part in the practices below you should find it easier.

1:Sleep in your sleeping bag

2:set your radio alarm to go off randomly during the night, filling your room with loud talking This works best if the station is foreign

3:have several mobiles ringing, without being answered To add to the torture, ask a friend to bring plastic bags into your room at roughly 6 in the morning and proceed to rustle them for no apparent reason for a good half an hour

4:Keep all your clothes in a rucksack

5:Buy your favourite food, and despite living at home, write your name and when you might next be leaving the house on all bags

6:Ask a family member to every now and again steal an item of food, preferably the one you have most been looking forward to or the most expensive

7:Even if it's a Sunday, vacate the house by 10a.m., and then stand on the corner of the street looking lost

These simple but effective instructions should help you fall into backpacking life.

ps: i know i have copied this but still v funny

enjoy your trip

Erm thanks xxpacerxx! But still highly amusing!! And I will ask the local neighbourhood to beep their car horns randomly thru the night along with the mobiles and the foreign radio.
