018 – It’s Enough

“He who would travel happily must travel light.”

– Antoine de Saint-Exupéry

Adventure abroad awaits!  Tomorrow, I travel to Japan for the first time and I’m beyond excited and grateful for this opportunity to see and experience this new place.

I’m taking very little for a two week trip and everything I have fits nicely into a new 31L travel backpack I’m trying for the first time.

After packing once, some slightly anxious deliberation and a bit of expert advice from my lovely traveling companion, I believe I’ve found an ideal set of items that will meet my needs and fit nicely into my bag.

Historically, my packing procedures where not all that refined and I used a giant suitcase to fit all of the stuff that I mostly never used.   When traveling in the past, I’d always found it a bit ironic that I could pack so much into a giant suitcase and wear so little of it for the entire trip.

I think maybe that’s part of the secret to happiness.

Want little.

Be ok with what you got.

And, know …

It’s enough.
