One of the odd realities of long term travel is that you still have errands to run and chores to do. Laundry, grocery shopping, cooking, cleaning the bathroom, taking out the trash – definitely not things I associated with traveling abroad, but definitely things that all need doing should you stay in one place for more than a few days.
At home, we handled these chores without thinking. Abroad, they’re an adventure!
