When faced with the prospect of travel I always used to think darn, where will put my stuff? It’s not so much the stuff I have when I leave, but the stuff I tend to bring back as pasalubong, gifts and souvenirs from where ever it is I traveled to.
For example, when I went to Singapore a couple of years back, I had one traveling bag and the bag I carried my laptop in. When I came back I had three traveling bags, my laptop bag, and a couple of sturdy plastic bags from the Duty Free shops. Previous trips that I came back from should have taught me to invest in a good piece of luggage instead of pretending I knew how to travel light.
Well maybe if I went to a place where there was nothing to buy souvenirs of, a place where there were no shops and flea markets. A place where I would only take pictures of or write notes about. I’m thinking of Vigan, or some similar place.
I’m open to suggestions.
