Souvenir Madness

Way, way back in September 2007, we blogged about being only a few months away from the start of our trip and not yet having purchased a single item, not even bikes. Too busy? Poor planning? Procrastination? Well all of the above, but mostly it was due to our shared, deep hatred for shopping and shopping malls. The last few months before we left were a complete blur of shopping, packing, painting, moving and training.

It’s a good thing people learn from prior mistakes…too bad we didn’t. It’s three days before we leave and we have over a year’s worth of souvenir shopping to do. :-D This inevitably means us running up and down the Green Market and the V&A Waterfront in a desperate panic, eventually settling on kitschy key chains and lighters for everyone! I know, I know, terrible, unforgivable. Sorry… :-(
