Xmas Countdown… 42 days to go :)

The countdown for Christmas is running. But DON’T PANIC, the perfect Christmas gift is ready for shipping: The DON’T PANIC Towel

‘A Towel – Just about the most massively useful thing any interstellar Hitchhiker can carry.’*


For all hitchhiker’s and fans of Douglas Adams, the author of the ‘Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy’ we have the right companion for your life, the Universe and Everything. A beautiful bath towel, with the smart advice: DON’T PANIC.

Of course, you can use it just right after you have taken a shower or bath, but there are a lot of more things to do with a lovely towel:

‘Partly it has great practical value. You can wrap it around you for warmth as you bound across the cold moons of Jaglan Beta; you can lie on it on the brilliant marble-sanded beaches of Santraginus V, inhaling the heady sea vapours; you can sleep under it beneath the stars which shine so redly on the desert world of Kakrafoon; use it to sail a miniraft down the slow heavy River Moth; wet it for use in hand-to-hand-combat; wrap it round your head to ward off noxious fumes or avoid the gaze of the Ravenous Bugblatter Beast of Traal (such a mind-bogglingly stupid animal, it assumes that if you can’t see it, it can’t see you); you can wave your towel in emergencies as a distress signal, and of course dry yourself off with it if it still seems to be clean enough’*

Here you can get it: DON’T PANIC Towel Shop

Shipping worldwide – Even Lenin got one.

Don’t Panic Towel at convent La Tourette

Always have a towel with you… During my travel to the south of France I visited the convent La Tourette in Eveux. An amazing building by the architect Le Corbusier in the style of brutalism, using the modulor principle. Built for a Dominican community of about 100 friars, today just twelve are still living there.

You can visit the convent by a guided tour or stay over night and enjoy building, food, religious service and the amazing view.

Especially in a convent, it is time to relax, roll out your towel and pop a fish in your ear. I had the room 106, above the entrance.
