Some packing lists, I notice, mention taking a roll of toilet paper. Is this REALLY necessary?
The first part of your answer is not proper nor kind.You could always use your hand.
I would suggest following the example of the Arabs and use your left hand. That way your food won't smell too funny when you use your right hand to eat it with as most of us do.
I would recommend that you always carry a roll when travelling. It saves you the decision making process of figuring out which hand is what when you find the washroom you are in has run out.
Thank you for the warning and for the kind welcoming.@Providence, I was just wondering what on earth has got into @whariwharangi, and to plead with him to have a heart, given that you are a newcomer to the Forum. When it comes to certain members, one must take everything they say with more than just a grain of salt. Especially, when it comes to bathroom issues, some folks revert to 'potty' humour. Please don't take offence. .
By the way, welcome to the Forum
Thanks for the advise.
