I was thinking more about the idea of spending a year abroad over the weekend. Since it was Mother’s Day I did get a little extra time to myself, and that’s when weird questions started to pop into my head about traveling the globe.
How am I Going to Color My Hair?
Yes, I color my hair, and I do so about every four weeks. I’d pretty much be all grey if I didn’t do that so naturally I woke up in a panic attack wondering what I’ll do to color my hair. Okay, a little exaggeration, but it is still on my mind…
Should I Bring a Hair Dryer?
I’m talking about a trip that’s five years out and yet I’m wondering whether or not to bring a hair dryer. Sure, every hotel in America has one in their rooms, but what about overseas? I’m not so sure. I may need to investigate or cut my hair really short so it doesn’t matter anyway.
What About My Cell Phone? Will My iPhone Work Everywhere?
When my husband and I went to Australia, Ireland and Italy (all at least eight or nine years ago), we didn’t bring cell phones, or at the very least, I don’t remember using my cell phone. Yet now I feel like I’m breaking out into a sweat wondering whether my iPhone will work in New Zealand.
How the Heck Do you Pack for One Year?
So, after I heard Rainer Jenss speak, I requested his itinerary, and he pretty much followed warm weather, so he was in the northern hemisphere during our spring and summer, and then in the southern hemisphere during their spring and summer, so you could get away with wearing the same clothes year-round. But then he went to the Arctic Circle, completely throwing me for a loop.
How am I Going to Plan Activities for a Year?
I’m a planner. It’s just what I do. If I can avoid it, I don’t like for a single day to be wasted. I hate waking up not knowing what’s on tap for the day. I get stressed out just organizing a week’s worth of activities. I can’t even begin to think about how to plan out an entire year.
Do We Need Backpacks or Luggage?
Have you ever checked in at the airport for a flight and seen these families with these HUGE suitcases? I see them every single time I travel. Is that going to be me? Or are we better off taking backpacks. When we travel my son will be almost eight. Will he be able to carry his own backpack?
Do you ever start thinking about strange questions before you travel anywhere? What have been some of the craziest questions that have popped into your head? Let me know in the comments section below.
