Home Vacation

I'm sitting on my bedroom floor surrounded by clothes. And shoes. And I think the neighbor's cat snuck in there somewhere.

Packing is my nightmare. I don't sleep well before a flight because I know that as soon as my alarm goes off, I'll inevitably have to face the spirit-crushing ordeal of cramming, stuffing and bending out of shape to make my entire world fit into Ryanair's merciless 15kg limit. I mean, who on the planet can survive a week with 15 kg? Besides the Dalai Lama? Every ten minutes, I take a deep breath, visualize a peaceful lake in a green "oasis of calm" and start over: do I really need this dress? This pair of shoes? Come on, I can do without this jacket. Yes. The jacket goes. There. Perfect.

It's just that...the jacket goes with the shoes. And what if it's cold? It's Sweden, it gets cold. No, the jacket stays. And maybe a scarf, too. See, I can still close it. Kind of.

As you might have guessed, I'm going home to Stockholm for a week, to see my family and friends, celebrate my birthday and enjoy some nice rainy weather (can't wait to leave the lovely Milan summer for 17 degrees Celsius and downpours...insert obvious irony). I'll try to blog as much as I can - I know you guys would go crazy without me. But now I have to go back to the fascinating mystery of my suitcase, so have a great day and enjoy summer if you're lucky enough to have it!
