...yes, I do really need six pairs of shoes for four days

I love travelling.  I love road trips, bus rides, train stations, and even airports, security and all, and tomorrow I get to sit in one for two hours!

No, that’s not false enthusiasm.

The only thing that I loathe about travelling is packing.

I hate the fact that I have to guess at everything I will need in the next x number of days and then cram it all in a tiny little box on wheels.

To laptop or not to laptop?  How many jackets do I really need?  Will I actually wear all these shoes?  Most of the time the answer is yes, and the reality is no.  So I just have a really heavy suitcase to drag behind me.

But there is something to be said for possibilities and options.  I maintain that one of these trips I will wear everything I pack.  And in all likelihood that won’t come from me packing any less.

So here’s to freak downpours, spilled wines, surprise invitations to formal events, and split seams…and of course wearing the two weeks worth of clothing that I will have ready to deal with anything that comes my way.

Given that we are actually going to be out of town this weekend and the answer to that question up top is not to laptop (security is painful enough) the next few days are going to be a bit light on the blog…but hope you enjoy 🙂
