One sleep remains ... Surreal

So THE day is almost upon us...

It is a very very strange feeling to be packing our bags and knowing that in 24 hours we shall be on a plane starting our brand new chapter. Knowing that you only have 23 kgs per person to fit your entire world in, can be quite daunting. There is no shipping container full of furniture and knick knacks coming in a few months time. There is no box coming later via the mailing system. There is only the now. Now everything needs into fit into that bag. Many years of history and life scaled down into almost full stop sized pieces.

This process of downscaling has yes, been upsetting but on the flipside liberating. Most of us put a lot of stock into things whether those things stand for comfort or sentimental value. So when those items are no longer around, I think we as humans feel a tad lost, as our comfort blankets have been ripped from our hands. But with time, the feeling of loss will fade as we move forward one step at a time.

The goodbyes have been said, the paperwork prepared, household items sold or donated. All that remains, is the final countdown.

Thank you to all for your love, support and messages of well wishes.

I hope that you will join us on our journey across the sea with our first stop being New York City. Feel free to leave a comment or question below.

Stay Fabulous !!
