I don’t want to reveal too much, but my travel adventures might come to a halt/pause sooner than I expected, so as long as I am still a full-time-passionate traveler, I will stick my nose into travel related stuff. Coming back to the “pure minimalist topics” will be soon enough!
Sooo, Minimalist travel. It’s really interesting to write about it, because it is basically minimalism but everything is on a much smaller scale. When you travel, you usually are some kind of “at the moment minimalist”, because all you have with you is your suitcase. So everybody who travels has to go through the very important question:
What do I really need?
Will this item when I pack it and carry it with me be used or is it a “just in case item” which wil just stay in my suitcase until I come back home? Will this item that I carry with me add value to my travel?
Because I am
a little bit weird, I like to question all of my stuff. From the fifth pair of socks to the third pair of shoes, do I really need it or could I do without it?
For instance, do you really need a guidebook?

Even though I am calling myself a minimalist – or minimalist wannabe – I don’t travel with only carry-on luggage, I have a proper suitcase that is filled to the brim with my stuff – like a regular person does when they travel.

Yesterday I found that a few of my things in my old room have been attacked by mold. A lot of mold. It seems that only a few things are moldy, but the thing with mold is that most of the time it is not visible, so I am concerned about the rest of my stuff. The landlord of course denies any responsibility and refuses to reimburse me for the molded items… So much for that.
Then, I went for a small walk and was surprised by the beauty I found in nature which is why I am posting a picture today and probably a few more in the next days. Picture is under the cut. Continue reading “An unpleasant surprise and autumn impressions”
Today I was asked by a colleague why I always wear a formal business attire to work so I thought I could share my thoughts about this on my blog as well. Continue reading “My work clothes aka “uniform””
