The Bucket Shave

This might sound absolutely absurd but another girl, Alex and I realised that in our horrible dorm of Mumbai, the beauty of ‘the bucket shave’. This consists of:

1) Filling up a large bucket with water

2) Carrying it to the side of a bed (which doesn’t belong to you)

3) Placing your disgustingly hairy traveller legs inside the bucket

4) Layering them in shaving gel (or shampoo for us poor travellers)

5) Now sit on that bed and endure the most amazing shaving experience of your lazy travelling lives.


This may seem like nothing but after a good while of dirty clothes (no matter how much you attempt to wash them) and grimy, straw-like hair, you will never get your legs feeling so clean….And smooth!
