+ Travel in a world of adventures
Read my full day to day blog of my first big overseas solo trip.
Day 15 ( 21st dec) -All day shop. Back at the mall with a good head start before the crowd that will appear in a few hours. We print out the calendar and I run off to find throat lozenges and cold and flu tabs. Turns out this country does not supply such a thing. Not sure how anyone gets better around here, my throat is becoming more and more raw with each swallow. We head over to a new and bigger mall called Hemmingway’s Mall to find Robs more Christmas prezzies and to see what the stores have to offer. By the time we finish running around from shop to shop trying on everything that catches our eye, it is about 2 in the afternoon. We decide that’s all our legs can handle for the day and head out of the mall ready to go home for a dip in the pool.
On the way back we stop over at about 4 different shops trying to find a place that will bind the Calendar for us as it turns out a printing company thinks a Calendar is just 12 photographic paper printed with dates as loose pages…( strange !) Anyway we finally found a shop that would successfully bring the gift together. I take a seat as I feel slightly dehydrated after shopping in the mall that is supposedly 3km in diameter, well that’s my exercise for the day done ! Who needs a gym when you can just shop all day. That’s all from me xx Kirsty Claire xx
