I've mentioned in a previous post about the concerns I'd had around keeping myself occupied on my trip to Pakistan. Usually I take my iPod (no, I don't own an iPhone!) when I go travelling as it compact and contains music, games, videos and spoken books which can keep me occupied for hours. It seemed like the ideal thing to bring, but there was one teeny tiny little catch - we didn't have access to electricity for 17 days of the trek and once the battery went flat it would be dead weight. It seemed like the most logical and weight efficient option, but for that small catch of what to do once the battery had run out!
