Minimalism can be overwhelming at first. You don't know where to start?
Don't worry, I am here to help you.
Let me just start by telling you my story (keep in mind that this article was written in November 2018, when I started minimalism)
About 8 months ago, I was feeling overwhelmed. I had no idea why. I had been back to France for 8 months and all I wanted was to go back to New Zealand, where I spent ten months between November 2016 and August 2017.
I also had another dream: Celine Dion in Vegas. I had been a fan for the last 10 years (at least!). I opened my Google browser, and ten minutes later, I had booked my tickets for the 31st of December.
I mean, Vegas, for New Years Eve? My dream was coming true!
I texted Judith (remember her? She was the woman I stayed with in New Zealand, if you are new around here and don't know me) on Whatsapp, saying I had two tickets for Céline! She immediately said hell yeah!
After months of planning, everything was set: landing in LAX on the 15th of December and leaving on the 4th of January. 3 weeks of true happiness, meeting after almost 2 years apart!
I knew I had to travel light. Last time was just a nightmare, 20 kg reparted in my two bags. They where so bloody heavy, they were weighting me down! Immediately, I googled "how to travel light?"
And there it was. Minimalism. I had no idea what it meant. Let's have a look, where are you Google?
Lots of definitions, one caught my eyes straight away: less is more.
During months, I watched thousands of videos on the subject, and read articles, learning as much as I could.
As I learned about minimalism, I started decluterring my life of the excess and getting rid of everything I didn't need.
My goal was: traveling carry on only. 7kg allowed. That's it.
What will you find on this blog? My journey to minimalism, my travels, my backpack, everything real.
Now that you know about my story, let's get started right here!
