The following item represents a journey, a QUEST.<br />
As a regular traveller and tea lover I'd been searching high and low for one of these water boiling elements ever since I can remember seeing that old Nescafe advert from the eighties (you know the one).<br />
Could I find one that ran off a car cigarette lighter socket - yes certainly, could I find one that ran off the mains, no absolutely not. <br />
After failed searches I had given up and accepted defeat until earlier this year when the miracle finally happened.<br />
Happily found in a market in Varanasi for next to nothing I bought two of them (always carry a spare of your most important kit).<br />
It gives the odd electric shock every now and then but that's a small price to pay for having a rejuvenating cup of tea ready at my finger tips. <br />
