“All my bags are packed I”m ready to go . . .” and so goes the Peter, Paul
and Mary song that’s played in my head for the last several days as I prepared for a trip. In my head I must have packed my suitcase a dozen times, but In reality, I waited until the last minute. Packing light has never been my forte, but I was determined to be more of a free spirit this time. How much stuff do you need in Greece, anyway? Wish I had the “Devil may care” type of personality that allowed me to throw whatever into my suitcase and just take off. The packing “one” theory does not work for me, either. You know, one suitcase, one wrinkle proof jacket, one pair of perfect pants, one pair of comfortable, yet stylish shoes (isn’t that an oxymoron?), etc.
Shoes are always an issue for me. My whole wardrobe, whether it be for work or vacation, revolves around my feet. I’m a difficult fit to begin with – flat arches, thin as pancake feet, splayed and long toes, and narrow heels. So, in order to pack light, I had to jettison a lot of clothes and accessories, but I’m off to Greece with only one small suitcase and five pairs of shoes!
I’m hoping to write some short posts for my blog while I’m out and about discovering Greece through my daughter’s eyes. As they say in Greek, “Yah sahs!” or good bye for now! I’m leaving Boston now on a jet plane . . .
