The prior arrangemets

Almost there, but not yet quite.

overcast 18 °C

They say the planning and getting ready is an important part of traveling. Deciding what comes with, and what stays put.
The feeling's stronger this time, for I don't know when, or if I'll be coming back.
I speak of a one year journey. To some I mention two years. But In my heart I know It will be longer than that... There won't be a life to "come back to". Rather, if I do decide to be in Mexico once more, it will be a different life. One built with the blocks I have in that moment.

What to leave, where to store it, who to trust with all my objectified memories? Will a box be enough? Two? Maybe a suitcase, full of suits. If I'm gone for one year it will be fine. But if I'm gone for four? For more?

We're at the final crunch, and I'm still not ready for this trip. I don't think I'll ever be.

The beginning

In 2011 I won a design competition, the prize: a trip to Milan. That was my first solo trip to another country.
Since then, two and a half years later, I've been to more than 20 countries, and have no plans for stopping any time soon.

Just this year I've been in the Caribbean, sailing with The Clipperton Project from Colombia to Dominican Republic; in Canada, "touring" the cherry orchards, and hitchhiking 2000km across the US. But now a bigger one approaches, so I'll start this blog to try and keep in touch, from time to time!

Here's the plan for the trip, more on it soon!
