Home comforts whilst on Holiday abroad

We always take Tea bags, Marmite & Digestive biscuits.
People we stay with, usually ask for supplies of the above also !
Which is the equivalent of a small suitcase, on our current trip !
(After checking on what, and in what quantity we are allowed to import)

And an "Emergency" toilet roll for us in the carry on bags.

Re: Home comforts whilst on Holiday abroad

In Saudi we had a series of new colleagues who did similar with all sorts of stuff, until I took them to the local supermarket where everything was available  Smiley
The only minor irritation viz. was that their "bumwipes" were alcohol free and not as effective!  Grin

Half of brits in the entire UK, or half of brits in a group of, say, two, that they asked? Grin

A power extension cable with 4 UK square pin sockets while the feeder cable is wired with local power plug.

Re: Home comforts whilst on Holiday abroad

What's the point of the holiday if you take 'home comforts'? Isn't it time to enjoy the delights, or otherwise, of the locality Wink

We do this too !!
A standard 4 way, plus adaptors for the plug.
We also pack Mugs, much better than small cups for Tea & Hot Chocolate...

Re: Home comforts whilst on Holiday abroad

Doesn't really fuss me about home comforts. I'm going on holiday to enjoy the weather, food and surrounding culture etc.
