I Am Awful at Packing and Traveling



I originally intended to write a helpful packing post, as is the proper blogger thing to do, but when it came to actually packing, I literally just picked out a few pieces from my closet that stuck out to me, and most of the clean laundry that was sitting in my room from Monday's post. I folded everything, yes, and then dumped it in, along with all of my toiletries and work necessities. 


I have this habit of either being ambitious and using my smallest bags, or just taking my biggest suitcase as an excuse to also take a blanket with me, because why not? I am like a child, and I enjoy having a security blanket around.

That honestly says a lot about my travel habits. I've become terrible at traveling. Really, really terrible.



I used to love the idea of traveling all the time, and I still find myself wishing I could book a flight to various corners of the planet, but when it comes down to actually leaving my house for more than a day, I kind of meltdown. Technically, I'm not travelling right now. I'm house sitting, but I'm still not at my house, you know? The unreasonable anxiety is the same.

I've become more of a homebody than I ever thought I would. I hope that's something that changes in the future. Until then, I'm going to keep wishing I could be in my own bed.

  1. I hope you'll be able to travel more in the future and that you'll feel more comfortable doing so too. Perhaps when you get the chance you can take it step by step and start with a day and then two and so it goes! Hope you're having a lovely week Amber! Xx

  3. I used to be good at packing but then turned into a bad packer lol. Now I try to fit everything in and I am always scared of forgetting something important. The idea of having an extra blanket with you sounds cute and would make you feel like home even when you're miles away. Wishing you a great day! xx

  4. I want to see places as well, but the idea of leaving the house just tires me out. I'm a huge homebody as well. All the comforts, right there!

  5. I know how you feel too, I love the idea of travelling but a lot of the time when I do it I end up missing home an awful lot and counting down the days until I am back.. and then when I am back I wish I was away again, I can't win! Hoping things get better for you anyway! Loving your blog too by the way, well done you for making it so amazing to read! x

  6. I get totally anxious whenever I'm out of my routine, but I just try to push through. It's good for you, right? I'm terrible at packing too. I went to China for a week and brought 5 pairs of shoes in a carryon. Why? Who knows.
