Off to Germany to meet the girls this morning! Pretty pleased with myself for packing so very light this trip. Those who know me know I’m a bit of a hoarder, that I have trouble packing light. Immigrant mentality, you never know when something might be useful! Moving out of my summer sublet was a challenge. I’d somehow acquired a lot of stuff in four years. I came to Dublin with one bag, a backpack and my guitar in hot pursuit of minimalism. It’s fun to be headed to Germany with just a backpack. A brand new experience this whole packing light thing is. It’s kinda cool having less things. Things mean more, hold more value. In a way you have more.
