On my to buy list…

Walking shoes (to trudge the mountains)

Sunblock (to not return looking all eyes and teeth)

Medicines (can I even leave the home without having enough and more stock of every possible ailment that could possibly afflict one on a trip where we will be far from civilisation, and with no recourse to immediate medical store and home delivery. And that too with the brat in attendance?)

Flat sandals or shoes (I suppose stilettoes are not exactly suitable for train journeys. What? What? What? I really havent travelled by long distance train for years now).

Enough Shampoo and conditioner to keep the hair from divesting itself onto the mountain trails.

Gifts for all I plan to meet.

I need to start making those lists like now.
