Today, a short list about confusion and frustration from my travels...
  1. Tokyo, Japan:
    Confusion: sitting on a heated toilet seat for the first time (November 2007).
  2. Abuja, Nigeria:
    Frustration: delayed return to the UK after a work trip because of the volcanic ash cloud (April 2010).
  3. Almaty, Kazakhstan
    Confusion AND frustration: in the space of about seven days, we went from enjoying drinks in beer gardens in the late Autumn sunshine, to winter's arrival with heavy snowfalls. And I didn't have a winter coat. 😳
