1. I had no idea I was that fluent in Russian.

    Both times I did that, it was the featured toe, and a day before a significant trip. This is another reason why there’s a small roll of cloth tape and some small gauze pads in my travel kit.

  3. I remember many, many moons ago swimming off Sardinia and getting stung on the face by a jellyfish. I came out of that water near the German tourists who – despite not knowing any English – understood me perfectly.

    Actually, I’m very lucky. The bottom had a lot of urchins and if I had stepped on one while standing up I’d have been in serious trouble!
