Going to Thailand is no excuse to forget Japanese, so I'm taking along two books.

Things I gotta get there

Yes, all of that fits inside of my backpack. I'm actually taking off the top-pouch and using it as carryon, it has the inflight stuff. Everything else is stuffed into the main pocket of my lovely orange bag. Conspicuously missing from all this - my baby laptop!
