Today is the day before I leave for Australia... I'm not packed yet and I'm about to head out and go paddle-boarding on Lake Whatcom with my Mom. It's supposed to be another hot day and I want to squeeze in all I can before I go away for two weeks.
I plan to travel minimalistically on this trip which is a big challenge for me so I keep going over in my head what the bare essentials should be. Pocket sized super-computer (iPhone), wallet, passport, camera, contact solution, toothbrush, hula hoop and running shoes. Isn't that all I really need? It's not that easy... I'll be pairing it up and down all day in my mind I'm sure. I probably should squeeze in a run today too.
