because i'm always living out of a backpack when a travel, and because i lived out of a single backpack for an entire month last year in southeast asia, soemthing about being able to fill a backpack for just two weeks felt luxurious.
i had all this space i could use! i'm even packing a cheap umbrella with the intention of just tossing it when i leave cusco (which opens up space in my bag for shopping). i'm packing the caudalie beauty elixer which is something frivolous and just takes up space. i'm packing an eye mask for the plane. things i'd certainly leave behind if i were gone any longer. i packed the gorgeous silk printed pants that i bought on sale at anthropoligie and haven't worn yet because it was too cold here for them when they were purchased. i mean, it's silly. i'm thinking of carting my mini humidifier with me just because i have the room in my bag.
and to top it all off i'll be in first class with all that reclining and legroom. i'm telling you, SO LUXURIOUS!
i wasn't all that excited before but i think i'm getting there. now that i'm running out of things to stress out about.
ooooh! and lounge access! free snacks and wine! people who come and let you know when your plane is boarding! eeeeeee!
two of my favorite things in life, together at last: brian williams and marcel the shell. DEAD.
