Next week I am starting a brand new chapter. On Sunday I am off to my first destination, Shanghai. I am happy, scared, excited, nervous and more than a little hungry (literally and figuratively). There is guaranteed to be a lot of fun and many challenges, which I will write about in future posts.
This week however, I need to pack. Packing is hard for me at the best of times and now I have to pack for one year (possibly more), four seasons (from sun to snow), five continents (from the sticky cities of Asia to the cool mountains of Europe), and many different occasions and activities (from the classroom to night clubs). After a couple of long(ish) trips I have learnt quickly that having the right amount of things is really important. A set of well chosen things can make travel much more enjoyable. The challenge this week is to achieve that!
I’ll be back later in the week to let you know how my packing is going.
