Getting ready for a trip!

It’s time to start the details of getting ready to go on the next trip:  South Africa.  Leaving in just about 10 days, this is not the fun part!  All the unknowns of a new place–especially a first time on that continent!  So there are endless decisions and questions in the packing for an unfamiliar place.  Pack light…pack light…pack light.  But what if it’s cold?  What if it’s hot? Raining?

You’d think it would be easier by now, with all the trips experienced.  It helps to have some things in a kit, to just throw in the packing pile, and a list of things that cross my mind as I think about packing.  But I think it’s ALWAYS an unknown when you are going somewhere, and away from your closet of choices.  Even for a weekend.

Exciting, too, however, imagining all of those possibilities!  It’s all part of the dreaming stage of a trip, and imagining what it can be, and what you want it to be.
