Speaking of weight - we are packing for Vietnam in backpacks :-) It will be ultra-light travel, as we will be moving from place to place quite often. It is too hard to backtrack to the hotel as we need to leave town, so when we leave a town, everything we are traveling with will be on our backs. This should be an adventure. The good news is having laundry done is cheap and available. I got my gear together last night, just to see what it would be like - and I took a picture - but my damned POS phone won't upload anything. I don't know what is wrong - phone calls don't come through, texts take 27 hours to arrive, I drop calls all over the place.
|Two weeks worth of clothes|
in addition to what I will wear on the trip over -
one pair of drawstring linen pants (bought them at Goodwill last night:)
cotton pegged pants
2 quick drying/wicking strappy T's with built in bra
2 100% cotton tunic/overshirts
1 strapless dress that can double as a long skirt
1 pair running shorts with built in drawers -as shorts, bedclothes,swim bottoms
1 pair footie socks (probably only worn on the plane, as my feet get cold)
1 pashmina - which is blanket, pillow, sleep mask, temple covering, sarong, skirt, dress, tote basket.
2 pair Patagonia panties
all fits neatly into a casual backpack. Other supplies we will share between us or buy there. We'll see if I can stick to this :-)
Got home last night to find the AC had gone kersplat again. So, called the repair people back and hung out all day awaiting their arrival. They got here at 4:15, finally, but I am now cool. Hopefully, that's the last I will see of them :-) Thank goodness for that home warranty - it's so worth the piece of mind to just know who to call.
I did spend some time in the garden this morning, doing more cleanup work. A little trimming here and there - it's starting to come together again.
Take good care of yourself. Be kind to others. Lighten up.
