Enough said, right?
Right now its autumn in Aussie and starting to really get cold, well by my standards cold haha. Just look at those trees, aren’t they beautiful. I love the colour red, seeing this amazing colour outside my window every morning makes the cold a little more bearable or curling up with a book and blanket in the afternoon sun, surrounded by the red/orange leaves. The best.
However, this calm, sweetness of weather causes issues for me when it comes to packing… For what you ask? China, of course!
Yes, Joel and I shall be off to China in just a few weeks and yes, I will be blogging madly about it. But we will have just hit winter here (winter is coming…) and it will be just on summer in China!
This happens to me a lot, I go from the middle of one season to the complete opposite almost every time I travel, which causes havoc on my packing abilities. I seem to find myself thinking, oh II’ll just take a tunic just in case I get cold because I feel cold right now, oh maybe this sweater, and I won’t forget the trench coat. Meanwhile, I go into the middle of a Mexican summer! Or that time when I went to Europe at Christmas and took summer dresses because my body had adjusted to 40’C temperatures!
I know, I travel a lot, I should have nailed this by now. But no, unfortunately whatever the weather happens to be at the time of packing, is how I seem to think it will be everywhere I go. Even after looking up the weather reports. I did think I nailed it one time on a trip to Samoa. I took summer dresses and light clothing for a tropical island. Then we had a stop over at the Zealand airport for 6 hours. In which case I had a light knit jumper on and the airport AC was full blast in the middle of the night! I awoke without feeling to most of my body parts. Which makes it terrible awkward when you attempt to walk to a bathroom and one foot is dead.
So my thoughts have turned to packing for China, does anyone have similar issues? How do you fix your impulsive packing? You would think I would be a gun at this.
I love my bow slippers
Until tomorrow, Sweets.
