My travel, my stories

Packing, arranging and waiting

It´ is all about waiting now. Every day is a day closer to the date of departure. The last weeks have been all about meeting my friends and family for one last time. I know I will see them again in the future, I am not gone forever and I know I will miss them. Leaving is not the hardest thing to do if you know there´ are beautiful things to return to. And this saying goodbye part I have been through before… 

On the bike I just have limited space, so I have to be very careful about what stuff I take with me. I have done the packing routine before and over and over again, it is not a struggle anymore, although this time it is a bit different, because I have no clue for how long I will be on the road. That is why I will pack an extra shirt, an extra jacket and some extra socks, tha´t is all that is different this time.

Besides all of this, I´ am slightly worried by the weather. Leaving halfway autumn is tricky and not the wisest idea I had in a while, mentally I am preparing myself for endless battles against rain, storm and cold. But as any of you know, the harder the battle, the sweeter the victory!
