In a world where almost everything is paperless, keeping records and filing documentation is something that might slip your mind as you go about your usual business. While digitisation has made record keeping easier in some ways, it has also brought about some complexities. While there was a time when everything needed to be done in writing, nowadays a simple phone call can be enough to prompt action. Record keeping also goes beyond simply filing documentation.

“It’s the End of the World as We Know It (And I Feel Fine)”R.E.M., 1987 It has come to my attention dear readers that my most popular missives involve tales of travel and preferably unfortunate events befalling me.
