I messed up guys. I made such a fuss on my facebook page and my instagram about getting a name for my cute little snowman pall and even published a blog post about how he was coming on a trip with us. The whole idea was to get a cute photo of him by various sights every day over our Christmas travels and guess what? I freaking FORGOT TO PACK HIM! Utterly furious at myself, especially as I went so far as to blog about it but what can you do!
So today, instead of loads of adorable snowman pics, you’ve just got me, having a little ramble. I’m in Italy and will be here a while (back to Malta before new year). It’s something really new for us- we just came over here with no return flight booked and just two nights in a hotel already arranged. We thought it’d be kind of exciting to just ‘wing it’, see where we fancied, when we fancied it. I’m a big planner, I’m all about knowing what I’m doing and when. I never leave the house without knowing where I’m going and why, and even my days at home are panned out- I know what I need to do and by what time it needs to be done. But right now I’m in another country, with no idea where I’ll be in a day or so.
We’re booking hotels 2 nights at a time, then if we like that area/city we can stay for longer, if not, we pop on a train and try somewhere else. We did Bologna first, now we’re in Venice and we hope to fit in Pisa, Verona and Milan at some point. I’ll of course be doing proper travel diaries once we’re back and I’ve got my head and photos sorted, you can see where we went, what we did and what we thought. If you’re interested, I’m posting pretty much daily updates on Instagram.
I’m really enjoying this more relaxed attitude, just seeing how we feel, seeing where we end up. I don’t think this is the start of a brand new, laid back Rhi, but it’s certainly shown me another way and I’ll be learning something from it.
Who knew that chaos could be so…calming?
