It’s ten years ago to the day since I first threw out my back in a bus station in Denver. Ah, if I’d known then what I know now (sciatica, constant lower back pain for the last two years, having to think about even turning over in bed) I would definitely have done things differently. So, kids, learn from my mistakes: don’t attempt to take on holiday your own bodyweight in books, always buy the best engineered rucksack you can lay your hands on and never, ever, travel overnight on Greyhound buses.
