Well in five weeks time I will be in Sweden for one week. I’m planning to take an extra suitcase and pack as much as I can in so I then have room to take even more essentials when I move in September.
I have begun a mass clearout of what I own and it’s about 90% clothes. With the exception of my mobile phone and computers I won’t be taking any electrical goods with me. It’s a bit pointless as to ship it over is the same price as buying a new one.
One thing that has been a little strange is thinking of how much downsizing I have done in the past ten years since moving from Bristol to London. When I made the first move I had to hire a van to move all my things down. Now I can practically fit all I own in a car!
I’m in the process of packing things up into boxes and will then ship over the rest of the items I need around October/November time. I will need to take a lot with me but not so much that I have things I do not need.
Over the years I have become a rather experienced traveller, but going travelling and moving to a new country is a totally different ballgame!
