When you are travelling for an extended period of time, you’ll fight your way through many early mornings. Whether it’s to catch a flight, wait for a bus, or meet up for the local tour; the morning often comes sooner than you think.
One thing I struggle with when travelling is how I’m going to make myself presentable for the day ahead when I have so little energy and even fewer products to help me look even vaguely human (I’m looking at you hair straightener).
As we approach the end of our 6 month European adventure, I have noticed myself looking into the depths of my suitcase and thinking, “Could I have done better?” By that I mean, could I have packed less, would I have chosen different articles, are there things hiding in there that I haven’t even touched?
I wrote before on how packing for long-term travel can be somewhat daunting (find the articles here and here), and how it’s tough to pack for weather that will span three different seasons: winter, spring and summer. But now, as I sit here with two days left of our trip, I think, “I did a pretty damn good job”.
If you have been following my journey on Wander Before What since the beginning, you would remember that packing is not my forte.
Although I have improved on my packing skills over the years (I can now do three weeks in the Caribbean with just a carry-on), the thought of packing for six months of travel over three different seasons was daunting.
But now that we are coming up on the end of this journey and I look into my suitcase… I think I nailed it! I’ve had a few people ask me what I bought and what I brought. View Post
Over the past three months I have thoroughly enjoyed every moment of writing my blog. It has given me an outlet to communicate with friends and family, meet new friends via the blogging community and forced me to learn acronyms that were previously not part of my vocabulary. SEO anyone?!
Having my own little space on the internet has also assisted in rediscovering my passion for writing, sharing, and exploring the world around me. But moving forward there are other interests that I would like to integrate into my blog… the first being beauty and fashion.
This Thursday’s Three Things is a beauty post is on my favourite skincare products so read on and enjoy!
