but it's somewhat reassuring to know that a clean pair of underwear is a zipper away.
Somehow , when in preparation mode for your trip , you have the constant feeling that things should be bought "just in case". I mean , you never needed nostril moisturizer before , but you never know , six months is a long time and you better get it just in case. This goes along with the "you can never have to much" which usually refer to Pens and other small objects that you can never have to much of.
All of the important stuff is taken care of - Tickets , Insurance , Money. Now my worries are limited to weather I will have enough music to listen to or if I should put my headlight in my carry on or my backpack... Backpack is a word that makes sense but knapsack really isn't. Knapsack would be a perfect additional name for a hammock in my opinion.. I mean , think about it.
There should be a degree in Condensed Packing Science. Somehow , I can't imagine all of my stuff fitting in the bag. I can imagine it like Marry Poppins style but not in reality. Wow... Imagine packing and unpacking for a trip Marry Poppins style. They should make a new version of that movie anyway "Just a spoon full of artificial sweetener makes the viagra go down"...
Think I'm taking the "write like you think" to far?
I found the site I was looking for !! The Australian Starbucks Website !!
For a whole year I haven't had an ice cold Starbucks Coffee Frap...
I'm just imagining getting off the airplane in Sydney with my big bag on my back. I'll glance at my city map and then throw it in the trash. Then I will take out my Starbucks Locator map and follow blindly to the nearest branch. Don't worry , you'll have a picture of that posted soon. I'll edit out the drool.
And now for a few statistics to start the trip off with :
Australian accent level - 0%
Weight gained on trip - 0
No. Of visits to Starbucks - 0
Beer tolerance level - 0%
No. Of "Mates" - 0
No. Of books read - 0
I think that about covers it.
Another posting will be on right before I leave for the airport.
