Home again

I traveled for two weeks with only a carry-on and a small backpack! It took a lot of thinking and planning (and packing cubes), but I found I really like traveling light. When I got home I even removed some things from this packing list! This is having effects on my lifestyle at home, too.

I learned so many things: from Peter I learned that you can make up a great trip as you go if you have a phone with data, and that everyone needs unstructured play. I learned that I need to drink stronger coffee; thank you, Switzerland!. I saw an entire culture spending evenings with friends in cafes, restaurants and picnics with not a cellphone or laptop in sight, talking, talking, talking–and now that I am done with this blog, that’s what I want to do!

This was a sweet, sweet trip of a lifetime.
