OK so you might have read my shocking story about doing a sh1t on a broccoli field. Or you might have been repulsed by it and deliberately avoided it – but when nature calls there isn’t a great deal we can do about it. That’s why today’s Tuesday’s Travel Essentials has to be on toilet roll. Toilet Roll is a travellers’ Godsend, especially in South America, Africa and Asia.
In my backpack at all times I carry a small (not a full roll by the way) amount of toilet roll. As travellers you know that nature can call at the most ridiculous of times. Here’s a few places I’ve done a sh1t on my travels:
– Top of a mountain in China
– Broccoli field
– Roadside in Bolivia
And my regret in one of those was that I didn’t have toilet roll so had to improvise by using my pants. Parts of Asia also have power shower squirters for cleaning your bum and they come in handy too and to be honest I’m used to them also. BUT stay safe while you travel and carry a small amount of toilet roll. You don’t want your blue jeans turning brown!!

Very essential. I kind of forgot to keep carrying it being in New Zealand (they have public toilets everywhere) but even for non no2 related things such as soaking up half a bottle of wine off your friends carpet before they come back from the bathroom it is useful!!! Anyway after a horrible incident quite recently where I could have done with some it’s back in the bag!!! In Egypt I never left the house without it.
I havent been to Egypt but in South America and China it comes in essential at most times!!
