The farthest place that I had been to was Holland. I am glad I was prepared when I went there except that I was not ready for the “summer” weather there. I only brought with me long sleeves enough to keep me a little warm but that didn’t help me well. I had to buy a thick winter jacket for myself to survive.

Anyway, what I meant when I said I was prepared going there was that I brought my books with me enough to keep me occupied while waiting at the airport. Not all places offer free wifi and I had anticipated that, instead I brought novels to get myself busy. By the time we were going back, I already finished two books. I’ll make sure that I have excellent New Live Wire Headphones at musician’s friend next time.
