Your essential travel checklist….
What is the Essential Travel Checklist? So we have all seen the pre-packing lists. God I have written a few myself. It’s one of my little quirks, I end up having lists for lists!
But depending on where you’re headed and how long for, what you should take can vary. From what to pack for summer or winter destinations, to carry on and toiletries. Some of us travel super light, others take everything but the kitchen sink!
There are some things though that are totally essential to you having a great stress free journey.
So here I’ve included a check list you can put with your packing to run over before you leave on your adventure.
Reflecting on the last five years….
As I look back on 2016 and especially the last five years ,so much has happened.
Everything, yet nothing, has changed. Yes, a total contradiction, but so true in many ways.
In 2011 I left for Paris on a one-way ticket.
I had come through a bad separation, building a house and running a business. Being 39 and single in a group of friends that were all couples also brought its own challenges. In other words, I was quite often the “third wheel.”
Small-town talk also started to take its toll. No matter what I did (good or bad), it was quite often exaggerated. Before you knew it I was up to all sorts of stuff, and everyone had an opinion on it. Only my closest friends knew what I had and was going through. Anyone who has lived in a small town as the “single” lady will know what I mean.
To put it in a nutshell, I was f%#@ing over it!
So I started planning.
Hi, Kia Ora and Welcome….
So this is a fresh start for me. I have been playing around with blogging for over a year and a half now, with zero previous experience. Talk about teaching an old dog new tricks!
Now, there has come a time where I really want to make my passion my lifestyle and career. So that means making a commitment to get serious about this “Freedom Lifestyle”. No it’s not all holidays and cocktails. I have spent hours some days putting things together. So I am really going to get my back into now and make my dream a reality.
Up grading my site was a first step I wanted to take, and oh my God how much I have learnt. Widget, SEO, Plugins, FTP file, hell I wouldn’t have had a clue what you were on about 1.5 years ago. Now I’m slowing learning and hopefully getting better.
BUT, as I was in the process of changing over sites I have lost all my previous blog posts, damn! Yep I had backups, thought I did everything right. But Murphy’s law, if its gunna go wrong it will for me.
Kia Ora and welcome,
I'm Gina from beautiful New Zealand.
