Unpack The Bag
I unpack quickly wherever I am. Even if we are just there for a night. This is how I have always been, even as a child. Nowadays, it is even more important as a full-time digital nomad. I unpack what I need and always put up this framed photo of Sean and I (picture below). That picture has traveled all around the world. I know some of you are probably thinking I am crazy but when you live out of just one suitcase and don’t really have a home, your things become part home. Which is why I love that this time around Sean and I are staying put longer in places with Chiang Mai being the longest we’ve stayed in one location yet. I have loved doing a bit of nesting. One life’s simple but expensive pleasures is the home section of a big store!
I am best when I can get comfortable in a place. Not only does it make me more adventurous but it also helps me to have a routine. I like that the people at our regular coffee stops know us. I like that I know where different street food vendors are depending on the day. I also love that we have a water bill to pay and I also love how easy it is to do weekend trips to different areas. Better yet, I love that I can buy certain groceries and not be worried or annoyed at leaving them behind after a month. Hello, spices!
