Today is the day. The day I finally tick Paris off my list. It’s been in the works for just short of 6 months and now it’s finally here. The excitement developing inside feels as if it’s going to form a physical essence and rip itself from my body, thankfully it doesn’t.
This Is It
Dull, wet and bleak. That’s what the outside world holds for me right now. It’s 5:45 AM, I’ve had 4 hours sleep, maximum, yet I’ve never felt so alive. Light on, coffee made, shirt buttoned and a slight flick of the hair is all I need. By 6:15 AM, I’m ready and waiting at the front door. (more…)
The rattling of the air-con forces me to wake before my alarm. The room dark and still. Ice cold mist condensing on the windows. Outside is much warmer than in here. I turn to Danielle who is slowly escaping her dream induced reality.
“It’s time to get up” I whisper.
The Nightmare That Is Overpacking
I understand that most of you, like me, want to take everything and anything with you whilst traveling the world. Scared that you might forget something important, so you overpack. My girlfriend is a perfect example of those of you that do this. Including items in your luggage that you probably don’t need, making your suitcase overly bulky and heavy. (more…)
Moisture in the air, windows cloudy, skin damp. The morning sun poking its way through droplet paths as they slide down. 5:30 AM never looked so appealing. Eyes stinging from the distortion of time. We wipe ourselves down and make a plan for the day ahead. The choices for today, Coast or Lake?
Coast it is.
