On Friday, I am headed to Ireland for four months. The purpose of the trip is to fill in the cracks in the research I’ve already done, and hopefully get two chapters written in the process. I’ve packed my computer, my ipod, my ipad and some DVDs. I am somewhat upset that I can’t bring the small-terror-that-is-called-dog.
What is essential for your research trips? What have you packed that you’ve regretted?
