Grand World Tour

Eustace was jolly glad he had finally reached the epic age of 21 years. I shall set off on a grand world tour! he declared, his upper lip stiffening in the face of parental dissent. He bounded off to pack his case at the last minute and dashed off to the station.

Eustace’s hastily packed case…with all the essentials for a man about town.

Ready for Adventure

THE CONTENTS OF THE CASE

Tickets, Coins, Sponges and Such

Pocket Watch, dice etc…

World Tour : a homage to my son, who when moving to a new city for work at aged 21 decided to pack his Halloween costume; a large amount of sci-fi books and a huge monkey wrench, among other things, in the one suitcase Air Canada would allow.
