1. A penknife. For fending off stalkers, opening letters, and - you know. The corksrew.

2. Your work-in-progress. Be it on laptop, a memory stick or in a moleskin notebook. Keep it close. Sleep with it.

3. A roll on mini bottle of relaxing lavender and geranium essential oils - for the plane, and to combat that ham smell.

4. Sunglasses. In case you need to look famous. Or if the sun gets in your eyes ...

5.  A cashmere blanket. for style; warmth; comfort; pulling over your head when escaping the paparazzi.

6. A swimsuit. In case there's a pool in your hotel. Or you crash on the LOST island.

7. Your most comfortable trainers. Trust me. You will need them.

8. Chocolate. You know. Just in case.

9. A really, really good book.

10. Your sense of curiosity, wonder, discovery and the ridiculous. Because you're going to need that too.

The Gospel of Loki is out now.The novel is a first-person narrative of the rise and fall of the Norse gods - retold from the point of view of the world's ultimate trickster, Loki. It tells the story of Loki's recruitment from the underworld of Chaos, his many exploits on behalf of his one-eyed master, Odin, through to his eventual betrayal of the gods and the fall of Asgard itself.
