travel is glamorous only in retrospect

While everyone else on the northern hemisphere is getting ready for fall, I am preparing for a bit of a longer trip (two months) traveling around Southeast Asia & Australia. This has meant money spent on vaccinations (extremely expensive!), a special travel towel, a proper backpack etc. etc. 

On the nicer front, I thought the trip called for a new Heid Klein bikini (via mytheresa), which looked marvelous on the model & absolutely kept its promise, as it looks almost as wonderful on me (almost being enough in this case). The U-cut shape of the top has a somewhat '60s kitten-ish look to it, while all in all it's a model of simplicity, which I rather like.

All the beauty product travel sizes assembled over the years are coming in very handy right now, as they aren't as heavy and won't take up as much space as original sizes & should be more than enough for the two months. Plus, I can just chuck them out as I go along.

I have posts scheduled for the two months I will be gone, so this space won't become a complete ghost town.

“Traveling is a brutality. It forces you to trust strangers and to lose sight of all that familiar comfort of home and friends. You are constantly off balance. Nothing is yours except the essential things – air, sleep, dreams, the sea, the sky – all things tending towards the eternal or what we imagine of it.”
Cesare Pavese
