OR ALL THE HATS YOU’LL NEED FOR SOLO TRAVELLING.
Quick note, now I have a notice board for comments so feel free to add a comment and I’ll put it on the old birds board!
I thought for you old birds it’s only wise to take a look at headwear, vital whatever the weather. Here’s a collection of hats used on my trips or near-equivalents if I chucked them en route!
Please send in your pics of holiday hats and we can have an Easter bonnet competition! All will be displayed in April!
I bought this on Amazon for Russia. Oh dear so small for my big head no wonder it was such a bargain! The model obviously had a thin alien head.
Headwear definitely portrays personality. Looking back over the years I see that I’ve never owned a flowery hat and most of my friends don’t do that kind of hat either. I would love to but I just look silly. The same goes for frilly fascinators and suchlike, I just look like someone out of the loony bin has stolen a hat from a proper lady! I can’t wear tight fitting either. I have a round face and a bobble hat will just make me look like a balloon head.
Indeed it would seem there is a whole science waiting to be explored in hat psychology, do please tell me if there is?
HEAD AND NECK COVERINGS FOR EXTREME HEAT AND MODESTY
Try as I may I can’t find my pics with my head covered to go into mosques and some churches. I must have them in a file somewhere!! Someone should send in one of theirs!
All hats are good hats but most won’t travel well and frankly who can be bothered carrying one around that you can’t chuck in your case? The picture above (bottom right) shows what happens to an expensive hat in my hands. Anything I can’t squidge mercilessly, carry sea urchins in and use as a “safe” (Money and camera and any valuables wrapped in it and covered in a hole with sand) is of little use to me. This is why I normally am in caps. They don’t fly away and are small and eminently tough. You can wet them to cool your head too. A straw hat would certainly not do the job old chap!
