Travel preparations

EN: August is right around the corner. And you know what happens in August? Vacations. Lots and lots of travelling, laying under the sun and sipping margaritas by the pool.

This may sound very nice and relaxing, but do you know what’s not nice and relaxing? The packing before that said vacation. It’s not just the millennial in me talking, I promise, but packing before a big vacation gives me anxiety.

So, naturally, in order to avoid any more anxieties, I decided to plan everything in advance (I’m leaving for Greece, in September, so that’s one month in advance), and share it all with you 🙂 .

First of all, let’s talk goals. More specifically, my travel bucket list. Yep, you bet your ass I made one hell of a bucket list for this trip, so I can return home with a feeling of satisfaction. So, here it is:

After all that goal-setting is done, the packing is all that remains. The dreadful packing day… The day when my boyfriend will barely recognize me, because I will turn into a control freak, in order to make sure we won’t forget absolutely anything at home.

Here’s how my packing list usually looks like (except it’s written on a way-uglier piece of paper, and is not that colorful):


I hope this helped you get your thoughts a bit more organized, when confronted with the anxiety-inducing activity that is packing 🙂

RO: Inca putin si e August! Si stii ce se intampla in August? Vacante. Zeci, zeci de calatorii, mult stat sub soare si multe cocktailuri langa piscina.

Poate suna frumos si relaxant, dar stii ce nu este frumos si relaxant? Facutul bagajelor de dinainte de vacanta mentionata. Nu e doar “generatia de millenniali” din mine, promit, dar impachetatul bagajelor de dinaintea unei calatorii imi da anxietate.

Asa ca, evident, pentru a evita alte situatii agitate, am decis sa planific totul din timp (voi pleca in Grecia in Septembrie, deci cu o luna in avans), si sa impartasesc experienta, cu voi 🙂 .

In primul rand, sa vorbim despre teluri. Mai exact, lista de activitati pe care am pregatit-o. Dap, poti sa pui pariu ca am facut o lista cu activitati, ca sa ma pot intoarce acasa cu un sentiment de satisfactie. Asa ca, iata:

Dupa ce am terminat de facut planuri, mai ramane doar impachetatul. Temuta zi de facut bagajele… Ziua in care prietenul meu nu ma va mai recunoasta, pentru ca ma voi transforma intr-o obsedata de control, ca sa ma asigur ca nu vom uita absolut nimic acasa.

Cam asa arata lista mea pentru bagaj (exceptand ca e scrisa pe o bucata de hartie muuuult mai urata, si nu e atat de colorata):


Sper ca postarea mea te-a ajutat sa iti organizezi putin gandurile, atunci cand te confrunti cu activitatea inducatoare de panica, pe care o reprezinta impachetatul bagajelor 🙂
