"If you wish to travel far and fast, travel light. Take off all your envies, jealousies, unforgiveness, selfishness and fears."
I am finding "traveling light" is pretty hard. I mean, 50 pounds of suitcase seemed a lot bigger 51 pounds ago. How in the world am I supposed to fit 4 and a half months into one suitcase, a carry-on, and a backpack?
Hopefully Air France is in a good mood tomorrow ... and all their scales break.
In not being able to take a whole lot, I'm learning to take what I really need. What do I truly need to be sustained?
A coat. (It's really cold.)
An Italian-English phrase-book.
Some pictures to remind me that home follows me.
An open spirit.
Although I am not allowed as many skirts, scarves, and sticks of charcoal as I'd like, I'm ready to travel light and fast.
I'm ready for my avventura, my adventure, to begin.
