As the 2nd of May approaches, Travel is taking over my Life 😉 Are you like that too?
I LOVE traveling and so spend many happy hours dreaming of the journey ahead – the sights I’ll see, the food I’ll eat, the pictures I’ll take, the long hours of relaxation with a book and a drink 🙂 It’s a dream – so I skip over the longs lines at immigration, the hyperactive 5-yr-old boy traveling with, the jet lag, the exhaustion from sight-seeing, the one toy forgotten, which is the only one that will do…you get the picture? 😛
The key word here is ‘dream’! I’m not a very organized person (which is why I married one ;)), and packing is usually a last minute frantic exercise in gathering everything I think I need and piling it into the suitcase! I’ve gotten better at it over the years and this time I’m determined to be calm and collected and so have started getting stuff together and making piles well in advance 😛 I’ve made list of the medicines we need to take along, although of course I cannot now find it 😉 Still, I know we’ll be OK!! We always are in the end – and sometimes I think all my chaos just adds to the spirit of adventure! I’m sure Hubby doesn’t share my feelings but it’s not like he has a choice 😛
And now lets see what the inimitable Mr. Monkton has to say on the subject of Travel shall we?!
LOL…that sounds so familiar 😉
Happy a Happy Week ahead People 😀 Use Maps 😉

I read somewhere recently that those who travel are happier than those who don’t, and research supports that it’s really the anticipation and dreaming about traveling that accounts for the difference, and not the actual travel 🙂
I’m very organized, and we do so much travel that packing for us is always last-minute, but it’s nearly stress-free as well. Hope your trip to London is super awesome!
Oh Good!! Science agrees 😀 I usually manage to do a fair job and honestly most stuff is available everywhere now so forgetting is not a huge issue. I just tend to overpack especially for my son 😛
Hubby is like you – very well organised! Probably from years of crazy corporate travel 😉 thanks for the wishes 🙂 Love London!!
