Slack Bladder's cunning plan

Rory Maclean writes that, while researching his first book, he acquired a reputation for having a weak bladder, because he would dash to the toilet to make notes of conversations, while they were fresh in his mind. Colin Thubron disclosed, at a travel writing event earlier this year, that he does the same thing.

So there we have it. Not only is it a good idea to use the toilet on your travels whenever you can, because you never know how long you'll have to wait for the next's also an aid to travel writing.
