In a little over a month I'll be trading in keys figuratively speaking on my life as a corporate employee for a life of travel, creativity coaching, public speaking, workshop/retreat leading and yoga teaching. I'm counting down the days and I'll be kicking off this new life with a 10 day trip to Italy.
A game I play with each trip I've take recently is "How Light can I Pack"? Unfortunately there are a few habits that make my packing more cumbersome than most (like running and yoga), but Here's my packing list for the up coming trip to Italy. What are your packing must have's? What would you leave off this list? Who wants to takes bets on if I can fit this all into a roller bag and my leather purse?
1) iphone and charger
2) Computer and Charger (I'll be doing work while traveling so this is a must)
3) Garmin and charger (because running doesn't stop just because I'm traveling)
5) Camera and battery charger
Toiletries (all travel size)
8) Body Wash
9) Tooth paste and tooth brush
12) Tiny hair clips and bobby pins
14) Nail Clippers
16) Laundry detergent
17) Running Shoes
18) 2 pair of running shorts
19) one running top
20) 1 pair of running socks
21) 1 Pair of closed toe flats (most likely my toms)
22) 1 Dress
23) 1 sweater
24) 1 Long sleeve shirt
25) 1 pair of jeans
26) Underwear for every day
28) Bathing suit (one and two piece) and cover up
29) one pair of comfy long pants
30) PJ top and bottoms
31) 2 comfortable and nice looking tops
32) 1 Yoga top
33) 1 pair of yoga pants
For the purse
37) Hair tie
40) Manduka Travel Yoga mat
Have you ever been so excited about something the back of your eyes tingle when you think about it as if you're fighting back tears? That feeling that what you're doing might be forbidden?
I felt like I'd been punched in the gut robbing me of the air in my chest as it dawned on me...
I traveled to Portland from Seattle via the train for "The World Domination Summit" this week and I feel gratefulness from the tips of my toes to the top of my head for the opportunity to be here.
This trip isn't officially part of the year of the travel but it's the year of the travel and I'm traveling. I thought I'd include a few pictures of my Seattle adventures for you.
Here are a few last shots from last week's italy Trip. I hope they make you feel like I've brought you along for the adventure.
Sometimes I think part of the fun of travel is getting to see how much you miss home or not.
Most people just visit Capri for a day, I recommend spend at least a few days here.
The windows to my hotel room are open wide and I'm looking out into a plaza with flowers cascading off of back porches and birds chirping hello.
Any alarm would have been too early today, but this morning's alarm was unforgiving going off at 5:45am to accommodate a 7:20am train to Florence.
I stink, that’s not a value judgment it’s a fact, I'm ripe.
