On this breezy October morn, I walk
in the swift shadows of cloud-cursing rooks,
watching the world wake on the horizon.
Leo Yankevich
All houses wherein men have lived and died
Are haunted houses. Through the open doors
The harmless phantoms on their errands glide,
With feet that make no sound upon the floors.

We meet them at the doorway, on the stair,
Along the passages they come and go,
Impalpable impressions on the air,
A sense of something moving to and fro.

Is there anything you don't leave home without?

    I'll have to look at the picture tomorrow @Lynne. I suppose, apart from a camera, a kettle or means to boil water is top of the list as a travel accessory I don't like to be without.

    As for my taste it is a bit filigree. I do not know to I snor or have fights at nights, therefore this stand would be too weak for my use.

    When I am on a journey I have big problems by using the toilets. Most of them are too small where I can hardly move. I often have on a warm thick anorak and some bags with me.
    If you hear someone bangging on the cabin walls near your toilets cabin it could be me.

    I want that aero-tray!
    Not for travelling but for at home. :)

    A fan is another very useful travel accessory.

    I would take alonge a wet towel, becaue when I am on a journey I often get the need to clean my hands.

    A large size man's handkerchief has the same use. Here I'm finding keeping one handy very useful to mop my brow as it's so hot.

    Tissue papers and a bunch of chocolate s are essential for me.

    Folding cane! I try not to forget this.
    So far I haven't needed it though. :)

    Those nifty folding chairs are good if you're going somewhere where you might have queue for a long time.

    I found a blow up cushion for my neck has come in handy on long bus rides.

    I always bring my laptop.
  • LynneLynne Your Teacher HomePosts: 9,522 mod
    I always carry a packet of tissues with me nowadays. I'm worried I'm turning into my mother.

    It depends where I am going to. But for a distance traveling, I usually keep first aid items like a mini packet of tissues/ a small napkin, safety pins, pain killers, a bandage and plaster, some salt and sugar. Sound weird but these things are always in my bag.

    I don't forget to keep my sunglasses and a small knife, yes a small folding knife. :)

    I always take my Kindle everywhere. Because of that I don't waste my time because I can read books at any time :)

    I have given up on taking a small penknife @bubbli, as I've had too many confiscated when I've forgotten to pack it in checked in baggage.

    Usually I have a small folding umbrella, my tablet, camera, a pen and small notebook and some tissues in my hand luggage.
