So, I was in Scotland again…
That was a week ago, and it was just for a few days. A long weekend. I was back home on Monday.
Yes, I know: travel is one of those activities we’re supposed to avoid now that Europe has become the ‘epicentre’ of the Covid19 pandemic (according to WHO). And I agree: avoiding risks and social distancing are necessary to prevent the virus from spreading.
But, as I said, these pictures are from a week ago. The situation (with the virus) was very different then (at least in Finland, and in the U.K., too) and has changed dramatically since then. And no doubt we have a long way to go before things start getting better again.
In the meantime, and to focus on something trivial and less stressful for a change, I’d like you to meet my new travel companion:
This time, I decided to travel right. Make that extra light: this backpack was the only piece of luggage I had. That’s right: no suitcase, no trolley, not even a handbag. Just the backpack.
So, how on earth did I manage to fit everything in the backpack?
The truth is, I didn’t. I only packed my camera, laptop, phone and wallet. And some makeup, of course (well, lipstick…). No clothes, shoes, or toiletries.
That’s because this wasn’t travelling in the usual sense. You know: hotels, sightseeing, shopping, all sorts of activities that require different outfits and lots of accessories.
This was a low-key weekend with hubby. And I have everything I need (some clothes, haircare products, a toothbrush etc) in the rental flat we have in Aberdeen.
Also, this trip involved a (very) quick stopover in Copenhagen, with only 40 minutes to change planes (= a quick sprint from one end of the airport to the other). So, I didn’t want bulky cabin luggage to slow me down.
By the way, isn’t this mural fabulous?
