What to take? Part 4


A couple of bikinis casually thrown into a straw bag does not represent my swimwear needs. I burn easily so covering up is a must. I’ve treated myself to a new Aussie swimsuit, the Une Piece original sexy rashie

A rash guard, also known as rash vest or rashie, is an athletic shirt made of spandex and nylon or polyester. The name reflects the fact that the shirt protects the wearer against rashes caused by abrasion, or by sunburn from extended exposure to the sun.

It’s the unsexiest item of clothing around, but Une Piece have attempted to change this with the addition of a zip up the front. It locks at any given point so that the user can select their desired level of nork exposure as shown in the Baywatch-esque photo above. I intend to zip mine up to the chin, like a burkini for atheists.


I’m not a clothes horse by any means but I like to have options. This makes clothing selection difficult. I’ve whittled it down to a couple of pairs of shorts/zip off trousers, quick-dry t-shirts, long-sleeved shirts, cotton dresses, fleece, light waterproof jacket, light wrap – that’s about it. I’m still searching for a bra that’s light enough to be comfortable for sweaty temple viewing but provides enough support for bumpy bus rides. If you have any recommendations please leave a comment!

Shoes are easy hiking shoes, hiking sandals, flip-flops. Job done.
