    A sense of humour. Oh, and alcohol (depending on which centre you're at, they tend to be okay with it as long as none of the guests/other volunteers are disturbed).

    Hmmm clothes, try and pack for all weathers! Suncream! packet of tissues is useful, a good book, a reflective journal may be useful too..ie if an incident happens, or something happens, write it down, how you felt etc good to think back on when it comes to writing your PS

    and more importantly just enjoy it, my friends have loved it (apart from one, her guest died in his sleep on her last day!!)
