Next Wednesday I am heading to Cartagena, Colombia on a one-way flight with no pre-determined date of return. The plan is to stay for a year or so before heading somewhere new or returning home. There will be visits home along the way and if anyone’s interested in coming to visit me (warm weather, dark men, sandy beaches) they can check out Spirit Airlines. You can do a round-trip flight for under $400 from DC.
My biggest dilemma right now is what to pack. I am only taking one big suitcase as my check-in and my backpack & a small suitcase as carry-ons. How does one pack up their entire life into 1 1/2 suitcases? The guitar got the boot as did any large shoes. Luckily Lanre is a staggering 5’9″ or so and heels aren’t really necessary. (Plus I hate them.) But there is still a LOT to be packed. Luckily I like making lists and I’ve made oodles of them. But, no matter how many lists I’ve made, I’ll never be quite positive that I have absolutely everything I need. Luckily I’m not moving to the New World or anything. They do have their version of Wal-Mart where I can find most anything I need. Maybe I can even find boxed Macaroni & Cheese somewhere if I look hard enough. ;)
